Welcome

As a youth growing up, there was nothing more exciting than when I knew
I had a Scout outing coming up. Whether it was a campout, or a Klondike
Derby, or an OA event, it was something I always looked forward to.
I belonged to a Boy Scout Troop in which we went camping every month,
winter, spring and fall.rain or shine. Those weekends are some of the
most memorable times of my life and I will never forget them.
I was lucky, I had leaders that were dedicated to the Scouting program,
focused on making sure that the youth grew up in a unit that was focused
on teaching them life skills, morals, and being a leader in everything that I
did.

My reward from this was that I achieved the Eagle Scout Rank, but I also
know it took all of those leaders to help me get there. I wouldnt trade those times and memories
in my life for anything. To this day I still keep in touch with some of those leaders and friends that
I created life-long friendships with.
I am telling you this story because Scouting is still the best program out there for the youth of
today. As a leader and a parent, it takes each of you to create the memories for the youth of today
just like I am very fortunate to have.
As we look at Scouting today, it has also changed dramatically from when I was a youth. As a
Council we are laying the path to provide a program that the youth of today are excited and enthusiastic about, and will create an unforgettable adventure for them.
As surrounding Councils close their camps due to stagnant and declining attendance levels, in
addition to stale programs, we are investing in our programs at our camps. Last year we invested
over $80,000 into our programs to make sure that they are in accordance with what the youth of
today want. Adventurous!
At both of the camps, we completely revamped the programs, implemented new high adventure
items such as jet skis, an inflatable iceberg and more.
Yet our work is still not done and will be ever evolving. This year, we are adding a full computer
lab for our STEM program, the lumberjack games and looking at a High-COPE course and zip
lines. Once these are installed, this makes GEC the most advanced Council Camp in the State
when it comes to program. This year we have also invested almost $100,000 into the physical
plant at our camps. Everything from roofs, to interior remodels and more. These changes are
detailed in the beginning of this guide.
However, there comes a price to this. I urge the leaders and parents to come check the camps
out, see and know that the changes we have made are for the betterment of the program and to
assure that GEC camps are sustainable into the future. Support your Council, Glaciers Edge, not
some other Council where the money you spend is not reinvested-when you make the investment
in Glaciers Edge, it allows us to reinvest in GECs program and future of this great Council.
Understand that we are also looking differently at our training and advancement programs to
assure that you, as a leader or a parent, can support your youth and the unit that provides the
program. We want to make sure that every youth receives the best program that we can offer, but
we also know that you must be comfortable in implementing that program. Without your support
and knowledge the program will not be successful.
Lastly, I also understand that we each have limited time to be able to give to Scouting every week,
and I thank you for the time that you do give. I would also encourage you, whether you are a
parent or a current leader-to either get involved, continue to be involved, and get other individuals
involved that are currently not involved. What you do each and every time you interact with the
youth is amazing and it is creating those life-long memories.

Order of the Arrow


WHAT IS THE ORDER OF THE ARROW?
Glaciers Edge Council is the home of the Takoda Lodge of the Order of the Arrow. The Order of
the Arrow (OA) is Scoutings National Honor Society. The OA is based on the principles of Brotherhood, Cheerfulness, and Service. Its membership fullls the Orders purpose of recognizing
those who exemplify Scoutings values, promoting responsible outdoor adventure, developing
young leaders, and crystallizing the Scout habit of helpfulness into a life purpose of leadership in
cheerful service to others.
Established in 1915, the OA emphasizes service to the unit. In this way, Arrowmen give back to
their troops with the leadership skills and values of service learned through the Order. The Orders program complements the troops, providing valuable leadership training programs, worldclass high adventure opportunities, and exciting national conferences. Members of the Order of
the Arrow are chosen by their fellow scouts through an election process at a troop meeting. To
get your unit introduced to the Order of the Arrow, contact our Lodge and arrange for an elections team to visit.

CONTACTS

TROOP REPRESENTATIVE PROGRAM


The Order of the Arrow Troop Representative is a youth serving his troop
as the primary liaison to the troops Lodge and Chapter. He meets the units
needs by providing a communication and programmatic link to and from all
Arrowmen, Scouts who are not presently members of the Order, and adult

sometimes its colder in October than in December! Which Below club will
you be in?

2016March 31, 2017.
2) Recorded temperatures should be taken near sunrise.

record points for each Scout throughout the season.
4) Two adult leaders must be in camp when Scouts qualify and are responsible for their safety
and welfare.
5) The Scoutmaster will submit a completed worksheet to the Council Office no later than April
15, 2017. Patches will be available for purchase at that time.

Cub Scout summer camp programs are one of the biggest yearly highlights for your Cub Scouts.
Many of our Cub Scouts stay engaged in the program as a result of our summer programs. In

and more importantly, a better and more exciting program for the Scouts.

DAY CAMP
All day camps in 2017 are part of the Regional Day Camp Program, this means that we will be
bringing the camp program into neighborhoods convenient for our packs. This helps build upon
the success of the program changes in 2016. Additionally, all day camps in 2017 will be staffed
by a highly trained and paid staff. All day camps in 2017 will also be 5 day camps. Lunch will be
provided on day 5 of each day camp.
June 19-23 - Day Camp - Sessions 1 and 2
June 26-30 - Day Camp - Sessions 3 and 4
July 31-August 4 - Day Camp - Sessions 5 and 6
*Day Camps 1-4 will be located within the Mohawk, Yahara, Southern Lakes and Wisconsin
River Districts (park locations will be set by November). Sessions 5 and 6 will be hosted in
Janesville and Beloit respectively.
Youth: $100; Adults: $10
Day Camp is targeted at Tiger, Wolf, and Bear Scouts. Webelos are encouraged to attend and
act as Den Leaders in preparation for their Boy Scout career. This program consists 5 days of
structured programing revolving around learning Scout skills. During Day Camp, your Scouts will
have the opportunity to experience the following program offerings: Scout Skills, Team Building,
Water activities, Archery, BB-Guns, and Nature. Parents and Leaders are encouraged to participate in the learning process at each program area, while allowing the Camp
Staff at each area to run the program.

safe overnight outings for Dens and Packs.
BALOO is an 8 hour training course for all Cub Scout Leaders.
This course is required for all Cub Leaders prior to taking boys
and their families on outdoor activities. Participants acquire
the skills and confidence necessary to plan and carry out a
successful Cub Scout level overnight activity and understand
the focus of the Cub Scout level of the BSA.
At least one member of the Pack must be BALOO trained
prior to a Pack being granted a tour plan and permission to
conduct its own overnight campout. This person must be in
attendance at the event. Therefore it is suggested that Packs
have several BALOO trained leaders!

TROOP COMMITTEE CHALLENGE


The Troop Committee Challenge training helps troop committee members
better understand their roles and responsibilities. When all of the troop leaders, the committee and parents take this training together as a group, the
troop is strengthened exponentially. Troops may request in-person Troop
Committee Challenge training at the unit level. Please contact the Council
Service Center in Madison for details. It is also available online at www.
my.scouting.org.

OWL: OUTDOOR LEADER SKILLS FOR WEBELOS LEADERS


This fun-filled overnight training course is for all Bear and Webelos Leaders and those involved
in delivering the Webelos program. While concentrating on the Webelos outdoor program, this
training will also show you how to keep boys interested in Scouting so that they obtain the Arrow
of Light and move to a troop. Incorporating the adage 3/4 of Scouting is Outing, the course
is conducted out-of-doors, rain or shine. Outdoor skills of Cooking and Sanitation, Campfires,
Knots, Woods Tools, Naturalist, Forester, First Aid, Fire Building, Geologist, Outdoorsman, Selecting Campsites, Tents, Bedding, and Weather are taught in the program. The emphasis is on
Hands-on Training. It also prepares the leader to conduct Webelos overnight camping with the
boys and parents of the den.
Prior to attending this training completion of Webelos Leader Position Specic training is recommended. Outdoor Leader Skills for Webelos Leaders is a supplemental training required to earn
your Webelos Leader Training Award.

SCOUTMASTER TRAINING AND OUTDOOR LEADER SKILLS


The Scoutmaster Specific Training course addresses the needs of adults who accept the responsibility of delivering the Scouting program to youth by serving as Scoutmasters and Assistant
Scoutmasters. For many, this will be an introduction to the rewards and challenges of troop leadership. Others may have held leadership positions in Cub Scouting, Venturing, or on a troop, district,
or council committees, and have come to the training well versed in what Scouting has to offer.
The sessions of Scoutmaster Leader Specific Training are thorough, comprehensive, and fun.
Participants will discover the essentials of their leadership positions and realize that they can
easily become successful Scout Leaders. Discussions, group activities, and video clips keep the
sessions lively and create a fellowship of learning.
This training can be taken in a stand-alone setting, but it is recommended
that you take the weekend training where it is combined with Introduction to
Outdoor Skills.
The Introduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills training allows leaders to work in patrols as they
learn the practical outdoor skills they need to lead Scouts in the outdoors. Upon completion,
leaders should feel comfortable teaching Scouts the basic skills they need to earn the ranks
of Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class. This training is held in an outdoor setting where
participants can experience and practice these skills first-hand.

WHAT TO BRING

The majority of this course is taught in an outdoor setting, and in Wisconsin anything can happen! Bring clothing and outerwear that are appropriate to the weather. NOTE: The Annual
Health and Medical Record Form (sections A,B) is required for all participants. Also bring:

Southern Lakes District


OVERVIEW608District Executive: Robert Armgardt, robert.armgardt@scouting.org 608-322-0027.
The Southern Lakes District covers half of Jefferson and Walworth counties in south central
Wisconsin. While we may be the smallest district by population, we have some of the biggest
hearts you can find. Our dedicated team of volunteers works with vigor and excitement year
round to put on some of the best district programs you will ever nd. For 2016-2017, we are
excited to share the many opportunities for fun we have to offer.
New in 2016 is the Rock River Regatta in Fort Atkinson! On June 11th, Boy Scouts and
Venturers are invited to race down the Rock River for fame and glory (and some neat trophies
too). The race will culminate near Blackhawk Island on Lake Koshkonong with prizes, good
spirits, and a delicious cook-out. Families are invited to join in the festivities of the cook-out.
Fall brings not only cooler weather and orange leaves, but another chance to attend the
Southern Lakes Fall Camporee at Moelter Farm. Along with good food and fellowship, the
camporee will have an Indian Lore theme. (more information to come on this, I dont want to
promise too much just yet)
In the cold depths of winter, we once again return to Moelter Farm for the outdoor fun of
Klondike! 2016 saw us tying knots, throwing spears, and roasting a whole pig. While we dont
know exactly what animal we will be cooking this year, know that the bar has been set high by
2016 (and were not ones to disappoint with food). Stay tuned for more information about our
theme, scout challenges, and more.
What good are fantastic events if you dont know they exist? Thats why every leader should
attend the Southern Lakes Round Table on the first Thursday of every month. Held at the
Whitewater Middle Schools Cafeteria, there is information, fellowship, and good fun for all to
bring back to their units. In addition, there is always a plethora of announcements covering not
only district happenings, but also council wide information that you dont want to miss.
