New this summer, you can now pre-select the Merit Badges and activities for each Scout attending Boy Scout Resident Camp at Beaumont! The Registration Contact can pick Merit Badges for each Scout. Alternatively, you can allow Scouts or parents to select activities by using the Parent Portal.
These selections are not final, but will give us a good idea of popularity for classes, and give you the ability to print off schedules for each Scout.
Since this is new in 2018, here are some tips to help you make selections as easily as possible:
- Click on a particular Scout to edit their schedule.
- Scroll down to the Merit Badge selection section, and then click "Select Classes."
- Notice the day and time of each classes, plus any pre-requisites. Click on a class in the column on the right to add it to that Scout's schedule. Click on it in the left column to remove it.
- hoose classes until the Scout's schedule is full.
- As you select classes for a period, only classes in the Scout's remaining open periods will be available.
- Repeat for each Scout.
You can make changes to your Scouts' merit badges as needed, and see which classes are most popular using the Class Attendee Counts report in the Attachments section on the registration page.
ote that you can print out schedules and blue cards for your Unit as a group using the Reporting button near the top of the page, or for an individual Scout. This should help you to keep track of where your Scouts are during their week, and you can give each Scout their own schedule!
The Early Bird rate deadline is coming up! Campers must be paid in full by May 18th to receive the reduced price. Remember, you can make your payment online using a card or using your Unit's checking account with an e-check.
Thank you and see you this summer!
Welcome to the new Lake Erie Council website. We've taken time over the last year to learn about the communication needs of our new council, and this is part of our effort to put Units at the Center.
The Lake Erie Council is excited to introduce the Scout’s Own Maple Syrup program, a new funding opportunity for units!
The Scout’s Own Maple Syrup program started as an idea to utilize our camp's natural resources to create a way for Scouts to fund their outdoor adventures.
Sap harvested from over 7,000 trees at Beaumont Scout Reservation is processed at Bissell Maple Farm to become Scout's Own Maple Syrup.
This spring, Scouts and units have the opportunity to sell Scout's Own Maple Syrup for $12 a bottle to fund their adventures. The unit receives $5 from each bottle sold. You can make an order by the case to get your sale started with the button below!
For more information contact Phil Williams: Philip.Williams@scouting.org.
Lake Erie Council is proud to annouce that Alex Coker will be returning to Firelands Scout Reservation this summer as the Program Director! Alex was first a camper at Firelands with Troop 414 and Crew 2100, following in his brother's footsteps through his Scouting career before joining camp staff. He has served in one role or another for eight summers, most recently as the Navigations Director in 2017.
As a student at Baldwin Wallace University, Alex studies Music Eduction to achieve his dream of being a choir teacher. Alex's favorite things to do are singing, soccer, and camping!
Welcome back to the team, Alex!
Lake Erie Council is proud to provide useful decorations for your Pack's celebration. Summer is Coming, and it's time to start thinking about camp plans. Each placemat is packed with information about Adventure Camp, Cub Scout Resident Camp, Webelos Exploration Camp, Family Fun Camp, and Red, White, & Boom! Scouts can color in pictures on the placemats, and complete camping-related activities on them before they bring them home to their parents.
We would also love to be part of your celebrations in person! You can request a summer camp promotion at the same link below. We'll bring the excitement to get your Scouts pumped up for camp, and be available to answer any questions that you may have.
Please request a number for your Pack, and we will provide half in blue and half in gold. Placemats can be picked up at the Unit Service Center in Cleveland, or if you coordinate with your Unit Serving Executive, perhaps dropped off at a more convenient location.
