At the Cornhusker Council Annual Meeting and Recognition event Roz Hussin was recognized for her involvement with and leadership to the ScoutREACH program.

National Youth Leadership Training is an exciting, action-packed program designed for councils to provide youth members with leadership skills and experience they can use in their home troops and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others.

This summer any boy that wants to come to Camp Cornhusker week 4 that wants a second week of camp can register for only $165! You can come as a whole troop, patrol, parent and son, or just boy. Individual youth will be assigned a campsite with other troops or to a provisional troop. Adults are the same price. The discount applies only to youth that are attending another BSA camp in 2017.
