2020 Tidewater Council Camp Card Sale | Tidewater Council

We are pleased to announce a new unit fundraiser! The 2020 Camp Card Sale is an absolutely RISK-FREE fundraiser that helps Scouts earn their way to the adventures of Scouting.

Camp Cards are cards that offer valuable discounts to local retailers, including Ocean Breeze Waterpark, Tractor Supply, Cinema Cafe, and more. Scouts sell the cards to family, friends, neighbors, and community members. Units earn 50% commission ($5 per card sold).

There will be three orientation and kick-off opportunities during the last week of March. Sales dates will be April 1 – June 4.

Registration for events may soon become a lot easier!

Soon you will be able to try out a new online event registration system! We are evaluating Black Pug for possible full implementation – including online reservations for council camp facilities. Black Pug offers a user-friendly web interface, an improved event calendar, better reports for event chairs and units, as well as full compatibility on smart phones and tablets.

Check out the system at https://scoutingevent.com/596. Click on the orange support bar on the lower right for a library of helpful tutorial videos.

Over the next few months, we will be testing selected events in this system and some will remain in Tentaroo until the evaluation is complete. Be sure to check the council calendar to find the right registration link. You can try out Black Pug today by registering now for the Council Banquet & Legends Dinner at https://scoutingevent.com/596-councilbanquet. We’ll be adding more events to test the system soon and we’ll keep you informed in the EK and on social media.

Boy Scout paper drive! #TBT 📰♻️

World War II: with the American war effort came an increased need for paper. In early February 1942, #BoyScouts with Troop 54 went door-to-door in South Norfolk (now Chesapeake) to pick up old newspapers donated by area households. 🗞

The Boy Scout paper drive was in support of “Salvage for Victory,” a nationwide campaign started fall of 1941 by the U.S. government to help offset a paper shortage. The collected scrap paper was recycled into packaging for shells and munitions. ♻️

It's not too late to sign up for the Klondike Derby!

Now introducing The Procrastination Class, for Scouts who want to attend but don't have time to build a sled. Your team can backpack it, dividing up the gear list between your teammates and competing at the stations with all the others. This is awesome for new troops, last-minute signups, or troops hosting Webelos and Arrow of Light Patrols. (These young Scouts must be part of team with a troop, crew, or ship.)

All participants receive a cool patch with UV-reactive thread!

It’s not too late to be a Pathfinder, which is an early donor of a significant contribution. Make a significant gift to the 2020 Friends of Scouting campaign before the end of January and be a Pathfinder. Our Pathfinders have, in the last week, already donated more than $135,000 dollars toward our FOS goal of $375,000 so that we can reduce or eliminate the program fee and make Scouting more accessible.

“Our campaign is off to a tremendous start thanks to our early Pathfinder donors,” said John Scheib, Council FOS Chairman. “We have an energetic new Scout Executive. We have an amazing program and Scouters. And now we have an aggressive funding goal so that we can reach more youth with the best youth development program. Won’t you join us?”
