Kamehameha District Updates & News


Hello leaders!

First, I would like to invite each of you to Roundtable on Wednesday, June 8. Roundtable will be at Nimitz Elementary School, 520 Main St., from 7 to 8:30 PM. You can look forward to:

  • Training on July's Cub Scout theme: Scout Salute!
  • For Boy Scout leaders, more information on Wood Badge!
  • Fellowship with other amazing Scout leaders from all over Kamehameha district.
  • For all leaders, learn how to input service hours to help us reach Journey to Excellence Gold again!

Roundtable is how you can get even better as a leader, and we hope to see everyone there! It's especially great for new leaders to get connected and network with other leaders in the district. In the meantime, here are some other things you should know:

It's time to plan for fall recruitment! For Cub Scouts, the theme this year is Rocket into Scouting. We're building an exciting island-wide experience for new Cub Scouts to receive a rocket and attend a special launch day. But recruitment's not just for Cub Scouts. Your district staff are here to help all units bring in new youth this fall. To start, we'd like each unit to fill out this quick survey by July 1st: goo.gl/forms/NL3PMwRrR7. It will tell us what your recruitment goals are, where you recruit new Scouts, what events you have planned (if any), and how we can help. 

Lion Cubs starts this fall! A big mahalo to the following packs who have already committed to host at least one Lion den for the 2016-2017 school year:
Pack 9 * Pack 297 * Pack 385

These packs will receive a complementary Lion Guide polo and one set of books. If you want this free Lion swag as well, just let us know by June 15 that your pack would like to have Lions! You can tell your district executive, Kaipo Leopoldino, by emailing kaipo.leopoldino@scouting.org.

If you have questions about Lions, BSA's pilot program for kindergarten boys, check out this document: Lion Overview. Your next stop is scouting.org/lion, which has lots of resources. For our council, Lion T-shirts, polos, and books will be available at the Scout shop in July. And if you have further questions, feel free to contact Kaipo.

July 16: Cub Scout opportunities at the Pacific Aviation Museum
 
The Pacific Aviation Museum, a longtime provider of awesome programs for Boy Scouts, is offering a brand-new program just for Cub Scouts! For only $15, they can get a three-hour hands-on tour of the museum that includes exploration of a wide variety of aircraft and time on a flight simulator. The museum will be running a program for wolves and bears on July 16. See this flyer for more!

FYI

Tenure for Training Awards

Unless it specifically states in the requirements that tenure cannot be used for multiple training awards, it can be used.

In the past we said “one Scouter, one position” and did not want to reward those who wore multiple hats. We are more realistic now. If a Scouter accomplished all of the training and performance tasks during the same tenure, they have likely made Scouting better for more youth and deserve recognition.

 
 

Friends Of Scouting Season is HERE!!!

 

For those getting their Eagle rank

As a special Aloha Council recognition of his fine achievement, we would like to feature your son on our “Eagle Scouts Wall of Honor” at our Council Service Center.

If you choose to participate, Stan Wright Photography will take a complimentary 8” x 10” photo of your son. Please be sure that your son has sewn on his Eagle badge before taking the photo.  The photo will be displayed on our Honor Wall and given to you to keep after it has been prominently displayed for a period of time. You may contact Stan Wright at 352-6197 to make arrangements so we can showcase your son. 

We also encourage you to send your Eagle Court of Honor invitation to the National Eagle Scout Association, Aloha Chapter.  This committee would be pleased to send you a congratulatory certificate, and if scheduling permits, a representative would be honored to attend your Court of Honor to make the presentation. Please forward all information to Marilyn Fowler at the council address or Marilyn.fowler@scouting.org.
