Aloha Scout Leaders, Scout Parents and Scouts,

Getting good training is the single most important thing you can do to be able to deliver a high quality experience for Scouts.

The best place to get a wide variety of relevant and important Scout leader training in a single day is at the University of Scouting. This year it will be held on November 8th.

There is a terrific line-up of courses which offers something for everyone, including Cub Scout Leaders, Boy Scout Leaders, Venture Leaders, Unit Committee Members, and parents.  This year we will have more than 50 different classes and most of them will be given twice. 

Venture leaders can receive their complete Basic Leader Training. Scoutmasters, please note the three hour training available for Den Chiefs.  This year we will be offering the Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops (ILST) in a 3 hour session.

Please check out the attached information packet for detailed information. To register, visit the Aloha Council website at

Please consider committing one day to improving your skills, increasing your knowledge, having fun and meeting other dedicated Scout leaders just like you.

Yours in Scouting,

The 2014 University of Scouting Planning Committee

Saturday, November 8th
Hickam and Pearl Harbor Commissary
Help the Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts
give back to USO Hawaii by purchasing
coffee and dropping them off at the
donation table by the exit of the
commissaries during your visit. Mahalo!

If anyone is interested in leading a coffee drive at their school Please let Sara Huiss know.  The POC would then be responsible for picking up the box from their school and dropping it off at the commissaries on 8 Nov between 9-4.  If dens/troops would like to sign up for a shift, they can access the sign-up genius page http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0d44acaa2fa57-coffee and sign up.  On that page, just list the main POC, and den/troop number (I assume the leader signing up will recruit their kids to participate).  If anyone has any questions, they can email me at sarasciv@yahoo.com


Thanks for supporting us in this great effort!

Sara Huiss

I know many of you with your Units are already planning a recruiting night or day.  Please let me know if you need any help with anything.  Also have your leader or membership chair email me your plans on recruiting.  Our Goal is to recruit 250 Scouts.  I believe we can do it!!!
As of 9/29/14 - We need 70 New Scouts by the end of the year!
Recruiting Scouts
As you all may know we are always in recruiting for Our Units.  I have attached an Alternative to Recruiting which give ways of reaching to potential Scouts.  Take a look over it.  If you’re a parent of a Scout, for Cub Scouts it is one of the things to do is recruit a friend.  For Boy Scouts they can earn the Recruiting patch.
If each Unit has a goal of recruiting 1 Scout per month we will be a very large District.
