Attention girls interested in experiencing Scouts BSA  This February, girls from 5th grade through 17 years old may become official members of Scouts BSA and we are planning a celebration at Camp Jarvis in Devon, PA!  On February 2 from 2:00 until 4:00 we are planning a host of activities including archery, rifle, and tomahawk throwing as well as Scout skills such as knot tying, fire building, cooking, and first aid.  Bring a friend and join in the fun!  Bring your parents too so that they can learn more about what Scouts BSA has to offer.    These activities are part of of a weekend long inaugural campout for girls at Camp Jarvis that is open to any Scouts BSA girl's troop.  If you haven't found a Scouts BSA home yet, we can help you join.

Adult Training Expiration Information

Posted by 16kruljacp on Dec 18 2018 - 9:13am

Some BSA Training courses DO have expiration dates associated with them (contrary to what the certificate may show -- see NOTE below). Please see the Expirations topic under Adult Training (https://www.devon50.org/node/1605) if you want more information or are unsure if your current training is still valid. For example, all 3 training courses for the annual Rafting trip expire 2 YEARS after they were last taken and the 2 training courses for any weekend trip expire every 2 YEARS as well.

Adults - Partial Training Must Be Completed by End of 2018

Posted by 16kruljacp on Dec 14 2018 - 9:39am

When the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve, it won’t just mean the end of 2018. It’ll also mean the end of any partial progress made toward position-specific training for Cub Scout leaders and Boy Scout leaders. The courses are being updated, and the new versions will launch on Jan. 2, 2019. The new courses will feature closed captioning, updated content and a mobile-friendly format. Also cool: They’ll take less time to complete compared to the previous learning plan. Any partial progress you’ve made toward your current training plan won’t carry over to the new one. That means you’ll want to complete any in-progress training by year’s end.

Timeline for Eagle Court of Honor Requests

Posted by 15lawdo on Nov 26 2018 - 4:03pm

An Eagle Court of Honor is a special day that requires the combined effort of several adults who need a reasonable amount of time to make it so special. Multiply that effort by the number of Eagle Candidates in a troop our size, and you can appreciate why we have the policies listed below.
