Informational Meeting: Tuesday, March 29, 7:00 PM at the Nashua Valley Council service center.
Research shows that childhood development accelerates around ages four and five, about the time youth begin formal education. To supplement the learning and growth boys experience at home and in an educational environment at that age, the Boy Scouts of America has developed a pilot program for five-year-old kindergarten boys called Lion. Nashua Valley Council has been approved to participate in this pilot beginning in the fall of 2016.Read more ...
Nashua Valley Council wants your input, so take part in the Voice of the Scout Survey this March!
Look for an email from the Boy Scouts of America in your inboxes! Beginning early March, parents, Scouts & Venturers over 14, volunteers, and chartered organization representatives will begin seeing surveys delivered into their email inboxes for Voice of the Scout. The surveys have been designed to be very brief but will give needed insight into the quality of experiences at the unit, district, and council.
Voice of the Scout will help guide our decision-making for our future programs and operational delivery. Please take a few minutes of your time to participate!
In order to ensure each Scout's achievements are properly recorded, and to ensure that all of our Scouts are properly registered with the Nashua Valley Council, purchase of recognition and advancement items must be accompanied by a completed, and approved advancement form. Online advancement forms (National's Internet Advancement and/or Scoutbook) must be linked to Scoutnet. Third party advancement programs (Troopmaster, Packmaster), and fillable PDFs of the National Advancement form should be reviewed by the council service center before submitting to the Scout Shop.
Questions may be directed to the council service center.
Reports are required for the following items:
|Cub Scouts||Boy Scouts||Venturing|
Updated medical forms for the 2016 summer camp season are available for download. Accurate medical records for campers, leaders, and staff are required by BSA standards and state law. They are also critical to ensure timely, effective care should you or your Scout become sick or injured while at camp. All campers, adult leaders and staff MUST complete the BSA Annual Health and Medical Record form annually. Forms expire after 12 months. Scouts, leaders, parents, and visitors WILL NOT PARTICIPATE in many camp activities including (but not limited to) swimming, boating, climbing, COPE, and sports, and may not remain in camp longer than 72 hours without a completed medical form.
Read the medical form carefully. All portions of the form must be completed for ALL summer camp programs.
