Register online for the 2015 Thunder Wolf District Camporee!
This spring Bovay Scout Ranch will be transformed into Middle Earth, and serve as the stage for friendly competition amongst dwarves, hobbits, elves, and the race of men. But take heed, Scouts, because orcs and goblins may be afoot.
Who will become the Lord of the Campfire Rings? Is your Fellowship up to the challenge?

Honor a Volunteer, Nominate them for the Silver Beaver Award!
The Silver Beaver Award was introduced in 1931 and is a council‐level distinguished service award of the Boy Scouts of America. The award is made for noteworthy service of exceptional character to youth by registered Cub Scout Leaders, Boy Scout Leaders, Venture Scouters, Varsity Scouters, District Level Scouters and Council Level Scouters within the Sam Houston Area Council. Now is the time to honor these outstanding leaders and recognize them for their dedication and service to the Scouting movement.

Boy Scout Roundtable Commissioner
In the coming months Thunder Wolf District will be sending out volunteers to give a short presentation on behalf of Friends of Scouting. These volunteers are leaders right here in Thunder Wolf District. Please help and support them when they visit your Unit.
It is very important that we all give our support to helping this worthwhile cause. The funds collected from this campaign will directly benefit youth in our area and give our Council the needed resources to provide one of the best Scouting programs in the Country. All donations to Friends of Scouting are tax deductible.
I hope you will join me in supporting Friends of Scouting,
Vince Donart, FOS Chair 2015
Thunder Wolf District,
As we start to head into the Cub Scout Summer Day Camp program, we will again be needing trained Range Masters for both the Archery and BB Gun ranges. If you are an adult interested in helping on the ranges, you will need to attend one of the following potential class offerings. Additionally, if you are trained already please check to see if your training expires prior to the end of Summer Day Camp (June 12, 2015). If you expire prior to that date you will also need to attend a training session.
There is a training coming up on Feb 7th at University of Scouting, the registration link is found in this flyer. All other need the form completed and then emailed or faxed in for registration.
Yours in Scouting
