Eagles' Quill - news for Golden Eagle District Scouters
The reservation system of Cub Scout Summer Camp is now open. If you know when your Pack would like to attend summer camp be sure to get your reservation in soon so that you can secure your spot. Summer Camp is a great experience for all of our scouts and we want to make sure that they get to have the opportunity to attend camp this summer.

2018 Campership Information
Finances should never be a reason for a Scout not to attend camp. The Crossroads of America Council campership program offers recipients up to 50% off the early bird summer camp fee in exchange of performing age-appropriate service projects. The application must be submitted by Thursday, March 1st in order to be considered for the full value award. Requests submitted after March 1st will still be eligible to receive a reduced level of support. The Campership application can be found here
New Youth Protection Training
The National Council has released a new Youth Protection Training for all leaders that goes more in-depth on protecting the youth in our programs. As part of this new training rollout all new and currently registered leaders, regardless of current youth protection status, will need to take the new youth protection training. We ask that you have your training updated no later than April 30th. The new youth protection training can be found at my.scouting.org.
Journey To Excellence
The 2018 JTE Forms are available! While many of you have already done this, every unit should turn in a JTE scorecard. Many of you have questions about the JTE (Journey To Excellence) form. The Scout Office can help you get the numbers you will need to complete this form and determine how you rank for Journey To Excellence. Please call at anytime during normal office hours with questions, or email firstname.lastname@example.org and the information will be sent to you.
