The Impact District is the outreach focus of the Cornhusker Council to reach the at-risk and under served populations.
The Silver Beaver Award is the highest award the Cornhusker Council can bestow on a Scouting Adult. The nominations are due to the Cornhusker Council Service Center on February 28th. Please take the time to nominate that outstanding Scouter that is making a difference.
Camperships are developed to help provide life-changing camping experiences for Scouts who, because of financial challenges, may not otherwise be able to attend one of the camps or events. Contributions are sought after with an emphasis on making sure every Scout has the chance to go to camp, changing their lives through recreation, friendship, and experiences which will cultivate skills and values needed for success in the future. Learn more to make sure Scouts do not miss out.
Join us for the Annual District Dinner on Wednesday, Feb. 22nd, 6pm at the Gala (2602 Park Blvd). Come and celebrate the dedication of all the volunteers and the success of Scouting across the Salt Valley District. We will be recognizing the 2016 recipients of the District Award of Merit and several other awards.
While we offer a number of programs that serve all youth, Cub Scouting and Boy Scouting are specifically designed to meet the needs of boys. For more than 100 years, the Boy Scouts of America, along with schools, youth sports and other youth organizations, have ultimately deferred to the information on an individual’s birth certificate to determine eligibility for our single-gender programs. However, that approach is no longer sufficient as communities and state laws are interpreting gender identity differently, and these laws vary widely from state to state.
Starting today, we will accept and register youth in the Cub and Boy Scout programs based on the gender identity indicated on the application. Our organization’s local councils will help find units that can provide for the best interest of the child.
