A Message From the Scout Executive

January 6, 2018

Happy New Year 2018!

Here comes 2018 and boy I just can't wait for what is ahead for the Buckskin Council. I know with the quality of our volunteers and staff we will meet challenges and treat them as opportunities.

Soon we will provide additional information on Family Scouting. We also have three opportunities for Boy Scouts to attend a quality Summer Camp in 2018. Check it out on the Boy Scout summer camp tab. And our Family Camps are growing year after year. Don't miss out on these fun program opportunities.

Shoot me an email and let me know how your Scout unit is doing. I am looking for great Scout stories to share in 2018. You can reach me at jpurdy@bsamail.org.

Good Scouting to you and yours!

What a time to be in Scouting. As you may have heard, the National B.S.A Executive Board has voted to allow access for girls in Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts. I know this big change will come with challenges and controversy, but in the long run I believe offering our Program to any youth who wants the adventure and fun of Scouting is the right thing to do. Below please follow the link for more information on Family Scouting.

Well the eclipse has come and gone. We sure had a lot of excitement here at the H. Bernard Wehrle Sr. Scout Leadership Service Center.14 Cub Scouts from Pack 135, along with 32 adults and tagalongs spent a couple hours on the deck viewing the spectacular event. They had a ball and so did the Council Staff. Here are a couple pictures.

I am looking forward to our big Fall recruitment. More to come. Good Scouting to you and yours. JLP



Welcome to the newly designed Buckskin Council Web Site! I hope you will take some time and learn where to find lots of great Scouting information. I hope to bring to this page a series of brief videos covering current topics in the Scouting world. So stay tuned.

Good Scouting to you and yours.
