The Longhouse Council’s Camp Card program is designed to help a Scout Unit earn $5 for every $10 card sold. The program helps Units to purchase needed equipment and assist with financial assistance.
New this year, when you purchase a SaveAround Camp Card, the purchaser automatically receives a Savings Pass Number, giving them access to hundreds of nationally recognized vendors with even more savings!
The Longhouse Council’s SaveAround Camp Card and SaveAround Perks offer hundreds in savings at area and national dining, fast food, sports, and service merchants. Coupons are valid January 2017 through December 31, 2017 unless specifically noted.
- The top performing Unit that sells the most cards will be treated to a pizza party after the conclusion of the campaign.
- The top performing Scout that sells the most cards will be entitled to a complimentary campership for either Camp Woodland or Sabattis Scout Reservation.
- For Unit Leaders, during the first 5 weeks of the campaign, a drawing will be held each week for a $25 Save Around book to be given to a Unit Leader whose Unit is participating in the campaign.
PROGRAM ENDS MAY 31, 2017
Eagle Scout Service Project Coach
The Longhouse Council Advancement Committee is now recruiting Eagle Scout Service Project Coaches (Project Coach) from all Districts, and encourages you to review the duties of the position and seriously consider registering.
The Project Coach is a relatively new position in Scouting, and is similar to, but different from the more traditional Eagle Advisor or Mentor. The Advisor is usually a Troop (Unit) adult who guides and works with Scouts throughout all aspects along their Eagle trail. The Project Coach becomes involved only after the District Committee approves the Project Proposal, and the Coach’s duties end with the preparation of the Project Final Report.
A Project Coach will be assigned to each Scout following their Project approval, and the Coach will ideally be from a different Unit. The idea is that the Coach will offer encouragement and guidance, as well as assist with the nuances of project execution including safety. This not only assists the Scout with successful project completion, but also exposes the Scout to another adult with whom to communicate and coordinate.
Attention: New Eagle Applications – Reference Letter Policy
To create a measure of consistency throughout the Council, a new procedure is being implemented effective immediately, in accordance with the 2013 “Guide to Advancement”. To view the new reference letter policy from the Longhouse Council please click here.
