Colorado Gives Day

Published on November 6, 2014

On December 9, 2014, Coloradans will come together again to raise millions of dollars for nonprofits like ours. Last year, a remarkable $15.7 million was distributed to Colorado nonprofits.

One of the greatest traditions of our nation is Scouting. With your investment, the Longs Peak Council can continue to prepare young men and women to embrace and live by a code of integrity, character, and honorable conduct – all timeless values that build strong leaders.

Consider the impact Scouting has had on the lives of over 10,000 young people in the community over the last year alone:

  • Over 200 youth achieved the rank of Eagle Scout
  • 9,114 traditional Scouts and their leaders contributed more than 100,000 service hours, worth over $2.2 million to our community
  • 36,000 lbs. of food was collected for our local food banks

 You can help support the Council’s mission by donating on Tuesday, December 9. Presented by Community First Foundation and FirstBank, Colorado Gives Day asks you to give to local nonprofits through the website ColoradoGives.org, an online giving resource featuring every nonprofit participating in Colorado Gives Day. In advance, please accept our heartfelt thanks on behalf of every young person who will benefit from Scouting because of your generosity. Your 2014 investment will help us continue to Prepare more Scouts for Life.

When you give online any time on December 9, the value of your donation will be increased by the

FirstBank Incentive Fund.  FirstBank also waives all credit card fees for participating non-profits.

Donate online any time during the 24 hour period of December 9 to “give where you live!”

In the Memo line you can add Friends of Scouting for 2014 (payment or new donation) OR 2015.  You can also designate your unit number for our Family Friends of Scouting Campaign.

Two Ways to Participate in Colorado Gives Day:

1.) Make a donation in advance: Visit www.coloradogives.org and schedule your donation to be made on December 9th. Look on the FAQs page for help in setting up a scheduled donation.

2.) Donate on December 9, 2014: Visit www.coloradogives.org and make a donation between 12:00AM MST and 11:59PM MST on Tuesday, December 9, 2014.

2015-16 Cub Scout requirements finalized

Published on September 29, 2014

http://blog.scoutingmagazine.org/2014/09/29/2015-16-cub-scout-requirements/

 

Good news for Cub Scout leaders, especially those who love to plan ahead.

You can now get your hands on the revised and final 2015-16 Cub Scout requirements, effective with the 2015-2016 Scouting year.

As with other program updates (including updates to Venturing and Boy Scouting), you can find everything you need to know at the BSA’s indispensable Program Updates page.

For the final Cub Scout requirements, you want the link for “Adventure requirements and insignia” under the “2015 Updates: Cub Scouts” heading.

Changes, which were made in consultation with Cub Scouters and chartered organizations, include:

  • Minor changes to clarify requirements (based on feedback from Scouters)
  • Changes in the required Duty to God adventure for each rank

The Duty to God changes are intended to:

  • Solidify Scouting’s focus on the creation of an environment and experiences where a boy, under the guidance of his family, may come to better understand and act on his own understanding of his Duty to God and reverence
  • Offer boys and families who do not belong to a formal faith institution opportunities and options to continue their exploration of their own vision of Duty to God

You’re probably wondering when you can get your hands on handbooks, den leader guides and other affected materials, right?

Those are on schedule to be in Scout Shops and at ScoutStuff.org no later than May 1, 2015.
