What have you done for Recruitment lately?

Can you help us? We want to flood the District with yard signs, articles, newsletter notes, and more! Do you know of a business sign in town that will allow us to post Scout info? Help us reach out to more youth and help grown more awesome young people through the Scouting program.

Hoosier Hills Winter Camporee is right around the corner!

Mark your calendars for our District Winter Camporee at Hanover College on 23-25 February 2018. Cold weather camping, patrol and individual competitions, and the sights/sounds/amenities of the beautiful Hanover College campus. More information will be released soon. We are looking for volunteers to help serve on the committee, as well as during the event. Contact Jules Erwin to get involved!


Our Family Friends of Scouting Campaign is Happening Now

Hoosier Trails Council has kicked off the 2017 Friends of Scouting campaign and we are eager for your support and help. As part of this effort, our beautiful Hoosier Hills District is coordinating a Family Friends of Scouting campaign to raise the money needed in order to invest in our youth and their bright futures.

If you are reading this, I know that you find Scouting to be a truly worthwhile experience for our boys, as well as the girls served by our Venturing and Exploring programs. The principles that Scouting teaches are as relevant today as they were when the Boy Scouts began over one hundred years ago. The youth we serve grow to be better leaders, more confident and forthright adults, and environmentally concerned and aware citizens.

If you believe that investing in youth through Scouting is an important part of helping to grow a population of people that stand for what is good and what is right in the world, then please join us in our efforts to support the Friends of Scouting campaign.

We don't have very far to reach our goal this year! We just need to pick up a little less than $4,000 to make it a successful year for 2017! Please, talk to your Scouting friends and families. Hoosier Hills needs your help!
