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.

he Seven Feathers District Committee invites you to join us February 18th, 2017, 6:30 pm at the American Legion Post 237 Hall located at 301 W Eldora Ave, Weeping Water, NE 68463 to recognize the outstanding dedication of our amazing Seven Feathers District Volunteers and Leaders.

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.

If you are planning fun and exciting programs for your Scouts to participate in, then the Camp Card program is for you! Camp Cards offer a perfect way for your Scouts to “Earn their own way” to Adventure. The Cornhusker Council is excited to continue the Camp Card Program for units. This program is easy to participate in and easy for Scouts and families to take advantage of. Sale will be March 20th-April 28th, 2017. Units participating in this program will earn 50% commission ($2.50) on each $5 Camp Card they sell. Now is the time to Commit for your unit to participate in the Sale!

Would you like the opportunity to help scouts of all ages have fun, develop self-confidence and help them overcome physical and mental challenges?
