Kamehameha District Updates & News
Kamehameha district news: University of Scouting, film screening, and more
Hey Kamehameha leaders,
I'm really pumped for all that's going on in Scouting. As I write this, I'm getting ready to go to the second session of Cuboree, where I'm looking forward to s'mores, astronomy, and the Ka'a'awa Valley hike. On November 4-6 is our fall camporee--Back in Time! (Sign up here!) And I've been talking to lots of families who are interested in our brand-new Venturing crew 970.
|Next week will be our Roundtable at Nimitz Elementary. It's on Wednesday, October 12 at 7 PM. This month's Boy Scout breakout is titled “The Art and Science of Getting Free Stuff.” Cub leaders will be discussing family involvement, and all sides will learn about awards for adults. |
|The University of Scouting on Saturday November 5th at Damien School will be an action packed, fun-filled day of supplemental Scout Leader training for both adults and youth. It is offered once a year to provide knowledge, ideas, tools and resources which helps adult leaders, volunteers and Scouts in their Scouting positions. |
The theme this year is “Be a Hero: Achieve Your Greatness”. Adult Scout leaders are frequently seen as heroes by the youth they serve. Heroes are people who are admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. Striving to achieve excellence through continual learning is one of the ways we become heroes.
The University of Scouting will include Den Chief Training, Cub Scout Den Leader Position-Specific Training, Cubmaster & Assistant Cubmaster Position-Specific Training, Scoutmaster & Assistant Scoutmaster Position-Specific Training, Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops, Introduction to Leadership Skills for Crews, Youth Protection Training and 77 other classes for all levels and positions in Scouting.

|Need more popcorn? Depending on which product you're looking for, it's here at our Scout office or at Pacific Transfer in Waipio. Give your local DE (me) a call to make pickup arrangements. And there are still lots of sales days available at Foodlands and Safeways, here on SignUpGenius! |
|Service Opportunities |
St. Timothy's Episcopal Church in Aiea is looking for older Scout volunteers to help with a feeding outreach, providing meals to those in need every 2nd and 4th Tuesday. Volunteers will meet at the church at 4:15 PM and arrive back by 6:00. The church will provide transportation to and from the outreach location at Blaisdell Park. The church is asking for 2-3 volunteers each time; upcoming dates are October 11 and 25. If your unit can help out, please contact Keane Akao at firstname.lastname@example.org or 380-6190.
|Be a hero by enhancing your training with University of Scouting! Who knows, you might end up taking a class with or by your DE! |
|Silver Beaver award nominations are due at the end of this month. The Silver Beaver is the highest award a council can give a volunteer, and it reflects a dedication to Scouting that goes beyond working with a single district. If you have a Scouter you'd like to nominate for the Silver Beaver, you can fill out or print the form here, and email or deliver it to me. |
|The Ewa Battlefield Commemoration is holding a free screening of the classic film "Tora! Tora! Tora!" on Wednesday, October 12 at 11 AM for Scouts and other special groups. It's fall break for public schools, so plan to head down with your Scouts to Consolidated Theaters at Ka Makana Ali'i in Kapolei to see this epic film! This film is the closest to the real December 7, 1941 attack that most people will ever see. A winner of numerous Academy Award nominations, the film is highly rated by historians and movie fans as a great classic. To reserve your free tickets, contact John Bond at email@example.com. |
|This month's Outdoor Leader Skills training for Boy Scout and Webelos leaders is right here in Ka'ala District! This training runs from 6 PM on Friday the 21st to 6 PM on Saturday the 22nd. The low price of $15 includes delicious camp meals. For more information and to register, go to the Calendar on alohacouncilbsa.org. To become fully trained as a Boy Scout leader (and we promise your troop will benefit!), attend this training and Basic Leader Training, which is available at University of Scouting. |

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.
