Outdoor Preparedness/Adventures is the Cornhusker Council’s adult outdoor training weekend. Here participants can work to be trained and certified in both BALOO (the Cub Scout Leader Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation) as well as the Scouts BSA Adult Leader IOLS ( Introduction Outdoor Leaders Skills) courses plus a little something extra from some of the most dedicated Scouters in the Cornhusker Council as they share some of their expertise beyond the badge.

Work as patrols with this hands-on course providing adult leaders the practical outdoor skills, they need to lead Cub Scouts and Scouts BSA members in the out -of-doors. Upon completion, leaders should feel comfortable teaching Cub Scouts and Scouts the basic outdoor skills.

***All participants need to take the BALOO online training in order to get credit for both IOLS and BALOO

All youth in the Cornhusker Council should have the opportunity to benefit from Scouting. The transition from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts is an important part of our membership. An effective Webelos to Scout Transition plan is essential for retaining our current Cub Scouts by moving them into a Boy Scout Troop.

The membership fees will take effect August 1, 2021, for the 2021-2022 program year. If your unit’s recharter is still in defective status after the deadline of 7/31/21, your unit will be charged the new fees. If your recharter and all paperwork is successfully completed before the deadline, the old fees will still be in effect.

Over the last few months, we have seen the Scouting community come together, even while physically apart, to bring solutions, relief and comfort to those in need. From making masks to supporting food banks, Scouting has been a vital partner for communities across the country.

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has worked to keep the membership fee as low as possible. Unfortunately, operating costs have continued to rise and COVID-19 has compounded the need to increase the fee to maintain the program.

The national organization of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy to achieve two key objectives: equitably compensate victims who were harmed during their time in Scouting and continue to carry out Scouting’s mission for years to come.

Cornhusker Council has not filed for bankruptcy. Meetings and activities, district and council events, other Scouting adventures and countless service projects are taking place as usual. There should be no change to the local Scouting experience.

All adults registered in the BSA have been asked to complete a new background authorization form in order to register for 2020. The wording on the form has created some confusion we would like to clear up.
