2014 CAMP SEQUOYAH SPECIAL*WEEK 6
The Greater Alabama Council is thrilled to announce that we are adding a 6th week at Camp Sequoayh designed specifically for those Scouts that want to experience more summer camp. Scouts register to attend as individuals instead of with a troop. No adult leaders are required. The Camp Sequoyah Staff will provide instruction and be your Scout leader for the week. Each Scout will be assigned a campsite and adult staff members will provide leadership. Scouts can then focus their attention on merit badges and activities they really enjoyed or did not get to do during regular summer camp. For more information, go to: https://1bsa.org/article.php?cn=996&account=
Currently, almost all the pins for units in the Vulcan District are generic, or inactive. The Key 3 for every unit in Vulcan District needs to go to myscouting.org, and update their unit’s contact information.
Each unit can list 2 contacts, their website, facebook, give special announcements (like when is their school night or what school they recruit from), meeting times, and if the unit meets at a different location then the chartering organization they can put that there. The unit can even have a different logo if they would like.

WEBELOS – DON’T MISS OUT.
What is a Webelos Resident Camp?
Webelos Resident Camp is four days and three nights of Scouting fun and adventure at Camp Comer! It provides Webelos Scouts a taste of the summer camp excitement they will enjoy when they become Boy Scouts, and to offer the opportunity to complete some, if not all, of the requirements for select Webelos Activity Pins.
Who can attend?
Resident Camp is open to all boys currently registered as Bears (rising Webelos I Scouts) or Webelos I Scouts (rising second-year Webelos). If you are going into the 4th or 5th grade, this is for you.
How much does it cost?
The cost for each Scout to attend is $135.00. The first adult leader is free with a minimum of 4 registered Webelos from your unit. The fee for each additional adult leader is $55.00. Payment of all fees must be submitted along with the Webelos Resident Camp Registration Form. All registration forms, rosters and fees must be submitted to the Council no later than July 7, 2014.
What will the Webelos do at camp?
Webelos Scouts attending the Webelos Resident Camp will be exposed to a wide range of activities for completion of activity pins. Webelos I Activity Pin programs may include Aquanaut, Naturalist, Geologist, Forester, Engineer, Scientist, Sportsman, Showman, or Artist. Webelos II Activity Pin programs may include Aquanaut, Outdoorsman, or Handyman. Activity Pins offered at the 2014 Webelos Resident Camp are subject to change, depending on course demand, volunteer staffing, and weather.
