At our Annual Silver Comet District Awards Banquet on Thursday, March 12th, four deserving Scouters were honored with the District Award of Merit:

Leah Briick, the district YPT Champion and coordinator of Webelos-to-Scout district events;
Jennifer Kane, the long-time Program Director of the Day and Twilight Cub Camp at Jim Miller Park and Bethany United Methodist Church;
Addie Outlaw, the Camp Director of the Day Camp at Kennesaw United Methodist Church; and
Torie Shores, the long-time Program Director of Cub Day Camp at Kennesaw UMC.

These ladies were recognized for their outstanding dedication to special Cub events in our district and the Scouting mission in general. They work year-round to present fun experiences to our youngest scouts, helping them make Scouting memories that last a lifetime. The selfless dedication of time and expertise from these ladies brings the true spirit of Scouting to scouts and scouters alike.

Congratulations to Leah, Jennifer, Addie, and Torie, and thank you from everyone in the district for your outstanding contributions to Scouting!

Spring Outdoor Leader Training for Cub Scout Leaders and Scoutmasters/ASMs Registration is Open on Tentaroo

Posted on Mar 7 2020 - 5:48pm

Silver Comet will be hosting outdoor leader training for Cub Scout leaders (BALOO: Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation) and Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters (IOLS: Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills) at Allatoona Aquatics Base the last weekend of March.

The BSA requires that a pack have at least one BALOO-trained adult on every Cub Scout den or pack overnight outdoor event. That include pack camping and Webelos den overnighters. A BALOO-trained leader should be at any overnighter regardless of whether it is a pack, district or council event.

In order for a Scoutmaster or Assistant Scoutmaster to be considered position-trained and be eligible to wear the TRAINED patch on their uniform, they must complete IOLS in addition to other courses that are available as online or in classroom courses.

See the Training page for details, contact information, and a link to the Tentaroo registrations.
