2022 Summer Camp Promotions Commitment
Our goal is to give every Scout an opportunity to attend summer camp. Each unit should schedule a presentation between December 1, 2021, and April 30, 2022 for the Summer Camp Promotion. A volunteer from Waters Edge District will assist in facilitating the camp promotion through an engaging family presentation that lasts less than ten minutes. The ideal presentation is conducted at a function when most parents will be present (Courts of Honor, Blue & Gold Banquets, unit picnics, etc.)

2022 Friends of Scouting (FOS) Presentations
If you already have dates for your unit’s 2022 FOS Presentation, please contact District FOS Family Chair Frank Halstead, and/or District Executive Will Gales and fill out the FOS Form. This event should be scheduled when you may have the most families in attendance before the end of March.
