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.

Timberline District Update

Hello Timberline District,

I hope you are doing well and getting ready for a great summer. We are excited to announce some District events and news.

July Round Table:

  • July is a busy month with Family vacations, holidays and tons of summer activities because of this we will not be holding Round Table in the Month of July. Roundtable will start up again in August on the First Thursday of the month. This will be the start of a new round table season, and we hope to see everyone there.


  • Popcorn season is coming up, and we hope you will participate in the sale. Popcorn is a great unit fundraiser where a large percentage of the sale goes back to the unit and can be used for camps, getting new tents and supplies for your unit, summer activities, and so much more. Get your unit signed up today by clicking the link below.

  • Timberline District is in need of a District Pop Corn Kernal. If you have experience helping your unit sell popcorn and would like to share that knowledge and experience with the District now is your chance. If you have any interest in helping other units grow their popcorn sales and helping other scouts to succeed, please let me know.

Investment in Character:

  • We are coming to the end of our Investment in Character Campaign, and right now as a district we are really close to reaching our goal, and you can help. Please consider making a contribution to the IC campaign and supporting the Scouts of Timberline Distinct. To make a contribution, please go online to the link below and make a donation.

Buffalo Wild Wings:

  • Timberline is currently set up to receive 10% of all sales from Buffalo Wild Wings when a customer mentions that they are with the Boy Scouts or Team B. This offer is good for the BWW located at 415 S Wadsworth Blvd, Lakewood, CO 80226. We still have a few months to go for this deal, and we hope you and your family will stop in for some delicious wings. Unable to stay for dinner the promotion is also good for pick up and catering. Please stop in and help support Timberline District.

Elitch Gardens and Waterworld:

  • Need some ideas for how to beat the heat this summer Elitch Gardens and Waterworld are both offering Scout Days. This is a great chance to get discounted tickets and get your Den, Pack, or just a group of friends together for a fun day at either park. For more details see the links below.



Webelos Weekend:

Timberline District will be hosting a Webelos Adventure weekend the first week in August. Does your first or second-year Webelos want to learn more about the fun and adventures that await them in Boy Scouts? Webelos Adventure Weekend is a great chance to learn what Boy Scouts is all about.

  • Boy Scouts:

Do you remember what it was like to be a Webelo Scout transitioning into Boy Scouts? Do you want to help make a difference in a young Scouts life? Are you in need of service hours? Webloes Adventure weekend is a great chance for Boy Scouts to further develop their leadership skills and teach some of the upcoming Webelo Scouts, not to mention there is the opportunity to get service hours for helping.
