The National Hornaday Awards Committee and the Northeast Region, BSA will be offering a William T. Hornaday Adviser Training Course. This course is intended for Scouters who are interested in working with Scouting youth in conservation, Council Conservation Committee Members, and those interested in serving as Hornaday Advisers within their local Scout Council.
A ‘Super’ Fun opportunity for Cub Scouts to come out to Hawk Mountain Scout Reservation, and enjoy the day going through various SuperHero activities; including but not limited to BB, Archery, Zipline, and a Hayride! The Scouts will also have the opportunity to talk to Real Life Superheroes from local Emergency Services. There are two dates this year – October 19 and 26 with camping available during each weekend.
For a fee of $10 per Scout-aged Youth, and $5 for adults, everyone can enjoy the day’s activities, a ‘super’ lunch, and even earn a limited edition Patch! Check-in will begin at 8:30 at the Welcome Center Pavilion and the activities will last until 3:00 pm.
For an additional $5 per person, Scouts and Families will have the option to stay for Dinner and a Super Carnival that night! Overnight Camping is available, but the personal gear is required.

Have you and your committee been stuck trying to pick out somewhere to take your pack or your den?
Is that Patrol Leader’s Council stumped for ideas on an outing?
Or maybe you just need some ideas of places to take your family for a vacation or a long weekend.
Take a peek through this list of 149 locations that are good for your unit (or family) to visit. The criteria being that it had to be in Pennsylvania, specifically the eastern portion of the state (using Harrisburg and State College as general guidelines), similar to WFMZ’s “One Tank Trips” feature.
The three lists below are the same, but are sorted differently: by the name of the location, by the county where the location is found, and by the general category that the location falls under. Feel free to download whichever you prefer. The location categories are located at the bottom of the page.
All forms can be used by Cub Scout, Scouts BSA, and Venturing Units.
