NEW YOUTH, ADULT APPLICATIONS NOW IN EFFECT
We have received new BSA Youth and Adult applications, which are in effect immediately. We can no longer accept older versions of these applications, so please destroy any back stock you may have to avoid confusion.
SPECIAL NOTE FOR VENTURERS: Per new BSA Policy, any new Venturers who are 18 years of age or older are required to complete an Adult application instead of a Youth application and submit to a background check. They will still be considered Venturers until their 21st birthday, but must complete the adult application and take adult leader Youth Protection Training.

NYLT (National Youth Leadership Training) date change:
NYLT 2015, originally scheduled for July 13-18, 2015 has been moved up one week, to July 6-11. The course, open to all Boy Scout and Venturing youth leaders, has not been offered for several years in NWGA and we are excited to provide this great training in 2015! Jonathan "Boulder" Stone will be the Course Director. Fee for the course will be $220 and we're limited to the first 48 paid participants. Details can be found by clicking on NYLT in the Council Calendar. There is also a discount rate for those wishing to attend both CSD Summer Camp and NYLT! For a "bundle" fee of $400, attend both!

It is our sad duty to report that Mr. Ronnie Simmons passed away this morning. "Ranger Ronnie" was a fixture at Camp Sidney Dew for many years and was instrumental in helping make Sidney Dew what it is today. He was a great Scouter and a great friend, and left a huge impact on thousands of Scouts and Scouters over the years. Even though his health in recent years kept him from being as active at camp as he once was, he is still an inspiration to all who knew him and he leaves a permanent legacy, both with his home unit, Troop 113, and at Camp Sidney Dew. He will be greatly missed. We'll miss you, Ranger Ronnie!
MY.SCOUTING.ORG A GREAT NEW RESOURCE FROM BSA!
One of the most important new tools available from BSA National is My.Scouting.org.
Through My.Scouting.org, every registered member has the ability to:
- Update his or her own profile so you can keep up to date with all of Scouting's announcements and activities
- View completed training information and print training certificates
- Print membership cards
But that's not all. If you are a registered volunteer, My.Scouting.org is an incredibly useful and powerful tool.
Key 3 and their designees can view and export certain information from their membership roster. They can manage trainings for their Districts, assign Commissioners to Units, plan Roundtable, and much more.
No matter what position you hold, from registered member to Council leadership, My.Scouting.org has something for you.
Visit My.Scouting.org today, or click here for an overview of many of the tools you can find through the site.
