Campmasters at Nobscot

We’re looking for volunteers to serve as Campmasters at Nobscot.   A campmaster is a Scouter who serves at council weekend camps whenever troops, packs, or crews are using the property.  They provide commissioner-like service; this means helping units check-in and out at the property as well as being a friendly face and a representative of Knox Trail Council.

We provide heated quarters with full kitchen and bathroom.  Campmasters select their own frequency of service, but usually serve two to four times a year.  For more information or to volunteer, please contact Tom Bednarz or Dale Blue.

Webcasts on the New Cub Scouting Program

As you know, a new Cub Scouting program is launching June 1, 2015 that will be more fun and exciting for boys, and easier to implement for unit leaders. To ensure units are ready to make the transition, a series of webcasts will be hosted this weekend.  The webcasts will outline the coming changes, how to prepare, and when resources will be available.

Help spread the word about the webcasts to your Districts and Units.

Help us Fuel the Campership Fund!

No Scout should miss out on the chance to go to summer camp, especially due to financial hardship. That’s why we offer full and partial camperships (scholarships) – to make camp accessible to all.

Help us give more youth the opportunity to grow and learn in the outdoors by supporting Knox Trail Council’s campership fund. Your purchase of Camp Stove Fuel helps to remove financial barriers for youth who want to attend Camp Resolute and saves you money. Purchase through the Knox Trail Council at a deep discount and all of the proceeds will support Scout Camperships for the Summer of 2015.

Camp sparks curiosity, builds confidence, and introduces a whole new way of having fun. It allows kids to learn about and really connect with nature in a way that is difficult to accomplish in everyday life.

Help send Scouts to camp by ‘fuel’ing the campership fund!

Product available include the following:

* Super Fuel – Cleanest-Burning Liquid Fuel for MSR Stoves – 1 quart ($7.50)

* ISOPRO Premium Blend Fuel for MSR Stoves – 8oz. ($3.50) and 4oz/3oz.($2.50)

* Jetboil – JetPower- Isobutane/Propane Fuel Mix – 16oz ($5.50) and 8.11oz ($4.00)

If you have questions, please contact the program team by selecting option 1 when you call the office.
