Adventure Awaits

The Susquehanna Council, Boy Scouts of America, serves more than 2,100 youth through the leadership of 1,000 adult volunteers. Scouting provides programs to youth in five counties in Central Pennsylvania – Clinton, Lycoming, Northumberland, Snyder, and Union. The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

 
The Susquehanna Council is home to beautiful Camp Karoondinha along Penns Creek in western Union County. Each summer we provide exceptional programming to Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venturers. We are building character in the youth of our communities, one child at a time!

Silver Beaver Nominations now being Accepted; Deadline is Dec. 3

The Silver Beaver Award is the council-level distinguished service award of the Boy Scouts of America. The Silver Beaver is an award given to those who implement the Scouting program and perform community service through hard work, self sacrifice, dedication, and many years of service. It is given to those who do not actively seek it.
     On behalf of the Susquehanna Council, all registered Scouters are invited to submit a Silver Beaver Nomination Form to the Susquehanna Council Selection Committee. Nomination Forms are due by December 3, 2018.
     You can download the form here.
     The Silver Beaver is an award bestowed upon Scouters by the National Recognition Committee based upon nominations from local council committees.
     Criteria for selection include, but are not limited to, direct service at a Council level, effective leadership as a member of a council and/or district committee, which favorably impacts on the council or any of its programs. Tenure alone, while indicative of the nominee’s dedication to the service of youth, is not necessarily a key factor in making the selection. Consideration should be given to the nominee’s service beyond Scouting. School board membership, service clubs, religious organizations, and any other distinguished service to his or her community.
     In short – we are seeking an individual who has given noteworthy service of exceptional character to youth.
     It is appropriate to include two to three letters of support from individuals who know the nominee best.
     Awards will be presented during the Susquehanna Council Annual Meeting and Recognition Dinner on Sunday, January 27, 2019.
     You can submit the nomination by emailing it to Scout Executive Dennis Dugan, or by mailing it to the Council Service Center at 815 Northway Road, Williamsport, PA 17701.
