Scouting For Food
As Scouts, we know how fortunate we are to have a warm meal every night - whether around the campfire or at the kitchen table. And we know that not everyone is so lucky. That’s the genesis of Scouting for Food, the annual food-collection drive run by Middle Tennessee Council on first week of February each year. Scouting for Food takes place on two consecutive weekends. On the first weekend, Scouts distribute bags and/or door hangers to let their neighbors know about the drive. On the second, Scouts revisit those houses to pick up bags full of canned food, cereal, pasta, peanut butter, juice and other nonperishable items.
Powder Horn is an Outdoor High Adventure Resource Management course designed to motivate
and prepare adult and youth leaders to provide their unit with safe and correct Outdoor High Adventure activities. This course will give all participants an opportunity to experience the many different Outdoor High Adventure adventures.
Venturing Vista (renamed from the Venturing Leadership Summit) is a yearly training campout held at the Latimer Reservation. Come and spend time with other crews and ships in Middle Tennessee Council on Friday night, take training's required for awards on Saturday morning, play Quidditch in the afternoon, and finish the day with skits and s’mores around a campfire!
Memorial Flag Placement
The Middle Tennessee Council, Boy Scouts of America invites you to attend the Annual Memorial Day Flag Placement at the National Cemetery in Madison. This is just one of many ways the Scouts can show their patriotism and citizenship for our Country's Veterans. This tradition was started more than 50 years ago, and still continues to grow.
