And we’re planning a whole day just for you. Join us for our second annual CHAMP CAMP on Saturday, January 11th, 2014 for a full, fun-packed day of Pinewood Derby know-how.
Whether you’re a seasoned racer or competing for the first time, our trained sales associates are excited to answer any questions and showcase what’s new in the world of PWD. So drop in any time during regular store hours on Champ Camp day to:
● Learn speed secrets to shave seconds off your race time

University of Scouting
Why would you lead Scouts if you're not trained? How can we expect our Scouts to lead if we don't train them?
Adults, not sure where to even start? Begin at www.myscouting.org and take Youth Protection Training and trainings specific to your program. Check out upcoming basic leader training dates to the left in the blue column.
Reminder! Save the Date for University of Scouting, Golden Empire Council's premier training opportunity. It will be taking place January 25th, 2014. If you are a seasoned Scouter or new to Scouting this is a great chance to meet other leaders and learn more about a variety of topics to enhance your Troop and Pack activities!
School has started! As everyone is preparing for fall recruitment Packs, Troops, and Crews can all take advantage of youth & families looking for new activities to join.
