The new Youth Protection Training we released last spring. This is the designated Youth Protection training for all adults, regardless of which BSA program they are involved in. All volunteers must take the new training by October 1st, 2018, no matter when they took the previous training.

In an effort to drive program consistency and deeper engagement with our youth and leaders, Boy Scouts of America is pleased to announce that effective January 1, 2019, Scoutbook subscriptions will be free to all BSA units.

Life to Eagle Seminar

Salt Valley District holds bi-annual (Fall & Spring) Life-to-Eagle Seminars. All Life Scouts, parents of Life Scouts, and interested Scouters are strongly encouraged to attend one of these seminars before they begin their journey to Eagle. In addition to providing the most current information on the Eagle Scout Service Project and other Eagle Scout rank requirements, these seminars provide the opportunity to address recent issues and answer questions.

Prospective Eagle Scout candidate’s may attend a seminar in another District but Scout’s must know that procedures can vary district to district. It is the Scout’s responsibility to recognize the difference in procedures.
