Did you Know there was a Patch you Can Earn for Understanding the Upcoming Solar Eclipse.

Diana Shafer has prepared and submitted workbooks to the USSSP for Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts to use to document their work toward earning this special patch. I’ve added one for Venturers and Sea Scouts.

I’ve uploaded the workbooks to our website, and they can be downloaded by following these links:

* Workbook for Cub Scouts
DOCX format

* Workbook for Boy Scouts, and Varsity Scouts

There are also links to the workbooks on the following USSSP web page:

Ways the District Helps Units and Leaders and Scouts

Ways We Help Units and Leaders and Scouts are listed on the left Menu and below:

  • Training.  Trained Leaders have more fun, get more out of the Program, and help more youth.
  • Recruiting.  See our Recruiting Tools page for great ideas to help you recruit new families.
  • Activity Ideas.  Want ideas about Pack or Troop Activities … see our Calendar.
  • Finances.  We support the District and Council staff and program by raising money to support them.
  • Advancement.  We support units by providing additional opportunities for Cub and Scouts to Advance as well as providing training for adult leaders.
  • Den Adventure Plans.  Cub Scout Den Adventures (they are Adventures, not merely “meetings”) are very critical … we have lots of ideas at Cub Scout Adventure Plans, including scanned versions of the Den Leader Guides and resources.
  • Journey to Excellence Recognition.  The Journey to Excellence program was designed to help units support their youth by helping them plan and then supporting the plan to be a great unit.
  • Commissioners (Unit Service).  Volunteers who help units beyond their “home” units are Commissioners … see Commissioner Service for ways we help.
  • Charter Renewal.  Every Unit needs to renew their charter by the end of the year, and our Unit Charter Renewal page has all your resources for that.
