2021 Camp Cards 

Let’s go camping for free! Simply selling cards helps the Scout earn their way to camp and provides discounts to many local vendors. This is a fantastic way to help fund most of your Scout camping needs, in that you can help pay for those events by selling CAMP CARDS!  There will be regional cards available this year, so everyone across the Council can benefit from one of these cards.  The sale will officially begin on February 2021 and registration will open in December. Each unit should be confirming your unit chair for the sale. 

12 Point Scout Law Program

On March 1, 2020 the Middle Tennessee Council turned 100 years old. To help celebrate this milestone throughout the year, the Council’s 100th Anniversary Committee developed many activities and events. A special program has been developed to allow unit programing or Scouts to focus on the 12 points of the Scout Law. Each Scout can decide how they will accomplish each point, and the unit will recognize them with the patch of the point they complete. This can be completed in any order. Scouts can complete specific requirements for each patch anytime between now and July 2021 and earn all 12! This program is determined by the leadership in the unit and the Scout with their family. Click here for more information.

Northern Tier High Adventure Program
In 1923, just 13 years after the birth of Scouting in the United States, organized Scout groups made their first trips into the Minnesota-Ontario Border Wilderness Country. 

Northern Tier is the BSA’s oldest National High Adventure Program, outfitting Scouting groups for canoe trips since the summer of 1923. 

We invite all Scouts to join us in celebrating 100 years in the 2022 and 2023 summer seasons!
