This is a Cub Scout leader training required for any Cub Scout den or pack outdoor event, including pack camping overnighters and Webelos den overnighters.

This is a training session to train persons (age 18 ) to be range masters for archery and BB gun ranges. This session will cover the safe setup and operation of such ranges. Successful participants will receive a pocket certificate good for two years.

A trained Range master is required for any unit to conduct an archery or BB gun range.

The Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS) course builds and expands on the concepts and themes introduced in Scoutmaster Position-Specific Training and Varsity Coach Position-Specific Training, and provides Scouters with the confidence to take youth into the outdoors.

Scouting for Food is an annual food collection orchestrated by Scouts from Cornhusker Council. Local Scouts distribute door hangers across their towns and return to pick up the food items one week later. Collected food is distributed to needy families throughout the communities of the Council.

We are excited to be partnering with Cornhusker Bank and People's City Mission to be a collection spot for shoes from April 2-13! How many shoes can our Scouting families donate or collect?

Over the decades, the Boy Scouts of America has been a leader in developing training and policies designed to keep young people safe. Over time, these policies have become standard with organizations across the nation. Now, the Boy Scouts of America is releasing fully updated training to further strengthen our ability to protect youth. All volunteers must take the new training by October 1, 2018, no matter when they took the previous training.

You are invited to join us for an interactive conversation with Cornhusker Council Scout Executive, Chris Blum and members of the Council Board. We will be hosting 4 fireside conversation to discuss the changes to the Cub Scout programs as we prepare to make family programs available in the fall of 2018. You will learn what is fact and fiction.
