Summer Camp

This is the time of year when troops are involved in their summer camping season. Don't forget to keep track of all the nights your unit spends camping.  Not only is camping the best part of scouting, it counts towards your Journey to Excellence score. In addition, your scouts can earn National Outdoor Awards.

This is also the time when troops prepare for week long Summer Camps, usually at one of our Nationally Recognized Council camps. There are camping activities available for all levels and ranks of scouting!


Time Grants

Time Grant Programs are corporate giving programs created to encourage volunteerism in communities where employees live and work. Companies like Exxon Mobil, Microsoft, Verizon and CenturyLink all have these great programs. Most companies follow the model below when it comes to these programs.

For every ___ hours of service given by an employee Company X will donate ____ up to ___ times a year or for a total of no more than $X per employee per year. ExxonMobil offers $500 for 20 hours of service in a quarter for a total of up to $2,000 per employee per year as long as the employee submits the request each quarter.

If you have questions or want to know if your employer has a Time Grant Program, please reach out to James Dockter.


National Youth Leadership Training

National Youth Leadership Training is an exciting, action-packed program designed for councils to provide youth members with leadership skills and experience they can use in their home units and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others.

The NYLT Course is leadership training experience sponsored by the Denver Area Council and held annually at Tahosa High Adventure Base near Ward, Colorado. The training is conducted by highly qualified youth staff under the supervision of adult advisors.

The course models a month in the life of a unit. The training consists of six days of Scout activities culminating in an overnight outpost camp.

Recruitment

Recruitment efforts take place throughout the year. Frontier District Scouting units conduct a coordinated effort to enroll new members to Sign up for Scouting in the Spring. The Fall Recruitment effort focuses on recruiting boys that are K through 4th grades, but is not limited to that. The Boy Scouts recruit 5th-11th grade young men and Venturing recruits 8th grade young men and women between ages 13-20.

These recruiting events are put on by Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, and Venturing Crews throughout the local community. Our main objective is to give multiple sign up opportunities to ensure that every youth is invited to join Scouting and to fulfill our promise to new Scouts for a great Scouting program.
