Ready to revive one of East Texas Area Council's proudest traditions?  Or start new ones?

With new camp leadership, 2016 is going to be the most dynamic Winter Camp Program we've ever done. Spread the word!  Troop reservations will be up soon on CampMaster, but in the meantime, check out the Leaders Guide under the "Council Events" section in the Forms, Policies and Resources tab.  It's got a camp schedule, information about all of our new evening program as well as the updated Merit Badge offerings.

For more details, contact daniel.anderson@scouting.org or call the Council Service Center at (903) 597-7201.  Brace yourselves, Winter (Camp) is coming!

RE: Quad Jam Neckerchiefs

We will be placing a final order next week to replace the neckerchiefs so generously given up by the Venture Crews, Ship and unit adult leaders so our youth Boy Scouts would have neckerchiefs for the event.

Any Quad Jam attendee desiring additional neckerchiefs can do so now until Thursday, May 12th by placing an order through the Scout Service Center. The cost is $ 7.25 per neckerchief and they must be paid for in advance. Please provide your all the requested information including, contact information. We will notify you when the replacement and additional neckerchiefs have arrived and are available for pickup through Facebook and the Council website. Expect delivery at least 3 weeks from May 13th. You may order any of the District neckerchiefs not just your District..

Those units who were registered and not able to attend can pick theirs up at the same time as the supplemental order is available, since while we have all the youth’s available now (except for Troop 312) they are all still missing enough for the adult leaders registered to attend.

Please complete the attached order form and submit it with your payment. If you send it to the Service Center by email or fax you will need to call with credit card information. If you mail it in with payment it must be received by May 12th. Multiple individuals from the same unit are encouraged to place their order on the same form
