How many of your scouts or venturers are participating in the quadrennial National Jamboree at the Summit, Bechtel Scout Reservation, West Virginia?
One item to add to the scout’s toolkit is the Jamboree App. The Summit is a Wi-Fi friendly zone. Scouts are encouraged to use the system for many purposes.
Make sure you download the app before you go, so you can use it at arrival!
Jerry Simon, District Eagle Board Coordinator, reports that the following scouts passed their Eagle Boards of Review on Wednesday, June 14, 2017.
Congratulations to our newest Eagle Scouts!
At the halfway point in 2017 that gives us 24 Eagle Scouts. In 2016 we had 49 Eagle Scouts. If recollection serves, we had 53 in 2015.
I apologize for not delivering last week’s report from Sox.
Here’s a fire crafter report for both weeks.
School is ending and the summer is here!
And we know what that means: Summer Camp!
Whether you’re taking your boys to Belzer or Camp K… whether it’s your first year or you’re a seasoned pro… join us this Thursday evening, 7:00 PM, at Luke’s Lodge (outbuilding on the campus ofSt. Luke’s Methodist Church, 100 West 86th Street, Indianapolis, IN 46260) for the North Star District Cub Scout Roundtable.
We’ll be discussing both Summer Camps, and what you as a leader should know and expect.
If you are new, come learn some of the ins and outs.
If you are a veteran, come and share the tips and tricks that you’ve learned over the years with other leaders.
We hope to see many of you there!
Reminder that Roundtable for all Packs, Troops, and Crews will be at 7:00 pm at Luke’s Lodge, the outbuilding on the campus of St Luke’s United Methodist Church.
We will meet in general session first.
Then Bill Buchalter will meet with the Den Leaders, Cubmasters, and Pack Committee Chairs.
Jeff will meet with the troop and crew leaders.

What’s interesting about this process is that asking open-ended, thought-provoking questions can, not only guide others to find solutions, but it can change their way of thinking. It is in this change – it’s called neuroplasticity – where we find leadership developing. As leaders develop, their ways of thinking change. They look at challenges differently. They find new ways to look at issues, and their minds open up to the process of problem-solving and engaging others in moving toward a common goal. Executive coach Mary Jo Asmus details the three-step process that happens when you ask insightful – not instructional – questions.
