Look How Far They've Come
Philmont Scout Ranch hit the milestone of 1,000,000 campers this past summer. Troop 374 was part of this memorable moment in BSA history. Several Scouts from 374 that went to Philmont had also visited the 2013 National Jamboree and Sea Base previously. And still, the consensus was that the rigors of Philmont are "unparalleled by any other Scouting event." In one crew from 374, six of seven Life Scouts crossed over together from Cub Scouts. Four of them started Scouting together as Tiger Cubs. And together, they climbed to the peak of their Scouting careers in New Mexico.

Spring Cub & Family To Combine With Camporee
March 20-22, 2015 will be quite a busy weekend for the Trail of Tears District. In addition to the Pinewood Derby, Webelos Crossover ceremony, and Spring Cub & Family weekend, the Boy Scouts will host a Spring Camporee simultaneously. This blowout weekend will enhance the Webelos Crossover experience and ease the burden on families with boys in both Cub Scouting and Boy Scouting. The Winter Camporee will still take place in January, so this Spring Camporee will be an additional event for 2015—bringing the Trail of Tears three district-wide campouts.

Family Fun Day
Pack 374 had a great turn out when they held a Family Fun day to help welcome new Scouts to their Pack and to help kick off their Popcorn sales for 2014.
