New Unit Leader - Website Overload

Boy Scout FleurdelisSo you find yourself a brand new UNIT leader of a scouting unit (Committee Chair, Cubmaster/Scoutmaster/, Chartered Org Representative...).  Now you have a lot of questions.

Camp James Ray Address Update

James Ray Entrance

In the past there has been a discrepancy on the listing of the Camp James Ray address.  If you put the old address into a GPS system it will take you to the old service entrance to the camp, not the new gateway and entrance that was created a few years ago.  This has led to some confusion and a bad first impression of our camp. 

A new address number has been added for Camp James Ray to rectify the issue.  It will take a while for the various map services to be updated.  Until then, the best method to get exact driving directions is using GPS coordinates 33.819598, -96.782577.

The new address is:
    Camp James Ray
    2026 Mill Creek Rd
    Pottsboro, TX 75076

Service Hours Reporting

Scouts at Work
One of the main rolls of the Activities and Civic Service Committee is to help units with Community Service. Doing service projects in our communities is not something that our Packs and Troops struggle with. The biggest struggle is logging all of the service the Scouts do.
It is important to get these hours logged. This helps your unit and the district know how we are doing in servicing our community. Just think how impact-full it is when you talk to people about your unit and tell them the actual number of service hours your Scouts contributed to our community. People are always surprised to here what young people are doing.
