September 10th – 11th, 2016 At Camp Woodland

Start your fall Cub Scout program with a bang at the WEBELOSREE! The WEBELOSREE is different from all other Cub Scout programs Longhouse Council has to offer as it is planned, staffed and executed exclusively by Boy Scout age youth.

These youth are the Arrowmen of Lowanne Nimat lodge, the local chapter of Scouting’s National Honor Society. The WEBELOSREE will have your WEBELOS and Arrow of Light Scouts excited and enthusiastic for the crossover into Boy Scouting. Unlike most Cub Scout Day Camps the WEBELOSREE is dedicated and focused on delivering a Boy Scout level program to your youth.

This is a special opportunity you don’t want to miss! This year’s event will be race themed and will have your youth racing around Camp Woodland completing Boy Scout challenges with Arrowmen. The program is also designed to knock out many of the new ‘Adventures’ that are a part of the New Cub Scout program.

This is a great way for your youth to learn from some of the best. Ccontact Brotherronofthenorth@gmail.com for any questions. We’ll see you at The Race To Camp Woodland!

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.

Brief Description:
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.

Eagle Project Coach

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.
