Training for BSA Swimming & Water Rescue provides BSA leaders with information and skills to prevent, recognize, and respond to swimming emergencies during unit swimming activities. It expands the awareness instruction provided by Safe Swim Defense training. Persons completing the training should be better able to assess their preparation to supervise unit swimming events. The BSA recommends that at least one person with this training is present to assist with supervision whenever a unit swims at a location that does not provide lifeguards. This training is open to any registered adult leader, Scout, Venturer, or Explorer who is age 15 or older.  The course takes approximately eight hours and is valid for three years. 

Please welcome Dan Mitchell to the Cornhusker Council. Dan will be serving at District Executive for the Seven Feathers District.

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.
