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.
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.
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!
Sea Scout Ball
This exciting Ball is for Scout 14 and older that takes place at the Jet Potter Center at the Scout office. Preferred dress is formal or uniforms as we dance the night away with Scouting Friends.
Kodiak is designed to be an adventure that pushes the boundaries of every participant, one that will encourage you to try new things that may be out of your comfort zone. Each participant will be challenged with new activities and skills such as bike riding, realistic first aid, sailing, and outdoor cooking. Participants will be split into clans of bears to signify the challenge with the intent of preparing for the future with servant leadership in mind.
The Inconceivable Klondike Adventure
Like all great adventures, the Inconceivable Klondike Adventure is made up of several obstacles that are on a trail. Teams can choose their own adventure by choosing their obstacle order and the path taken; however, all teams must complete all the obstacles before they ride off into the sunset. As each Sled Crew reaches the obstacle entrances, they will be greeted by the magistrate. A cheerful and spirited reply will be expected. (Note: it has been noted that some sled teams have been known to bribe the magistrate. Some magistrates may be bribable. Others may have a higher integrity. The magistrate will explain the event or activity to take place within their town and any special rules or requirements of the obstacle. Some obstacles may be timed events, and others may be judged on the degree of completion. All obstacles are judged on teamwork. Adults, Scoutmasters, Crew advisors, Ship Skippers, dads, moms, siblings, pets, etc., are not allowed to escort the teams on the trails.
