Your pack and troop should be organizing spring roundups now! Kindergartners are eligible to join Tigers and attend Day Camp this summer - so beat the fall rush of activities and get your unit ready for another fantastic scouting year! Cub scouts will join year round if asked (and I know from experience that they'll join at older ages)...it's up to the units to ask! Please consider asking boys in junior high and high school to join your troop - all that summer fun is just starting to happen! The council has materials available at not cost to assist in roundups...please order your supplies now from council at 303.445.5522! Douglas County schools have new guidelines regarding access to students, read the attachment and get those invitations into the weekly packets!
