Lenni Lenape News.
Has your unit gone on an awesome adventure? Do you have a Scout that has truly gone above and beyond what Scouting instills in our youth? Do you have a great idea for an activity for a Cub Scout Pack. Share your stories, ideas, experiences, accomplishments, and pictures with the district. Our Marketing and Communications Chairman Dave Jones wants to hear about it and publish it in the Lenni Lenape News. Your unit or scout deserves the recognition and the other units will benefit from your ideas. Contact Dave at firstname.lastname@example.org to submit your articles.
Lenni Lenape Bike Rodeo
April 9th The district will hold the inaugural Bike Rodeo for current and new Scouts. Units are encouraged to come out have your bike inspected, brush up on the rules of the road. The district membership team will use this opportunity as a spring recruitment event for next year’s Tigers. Invite a friend, enjoy some skills instruction from the Columbus Cycling Club, and make sure your bike is ready for the summer. As we get closer to the date more information will be shared to all the unit leaders.

Adult trainings will also be offered including but not limited to a class on the do’s and don’ts of the Board of Review process, SM and ASM Leader specific training.
National Outdoor Awards
When a Scout excels in outdoor participation, there are awards to show of it! The National Outdoor Award was conceived by the BSA’s National Camping Task Force, and it includes a series of six badges designed to recognize a Scout who has exemplary knowledge and experience in performing high-level outdoor activities. The six areas of emphasis are: Camping, Aquatics, Conservation, Hiking, Riding, and Adventure, with rigorous requirements to earn each. In 2015 Lenni Lenape has a Scout who has achieved this difficult award. We are pleased and proud to recognize Nathan Kahlenbeck from Troop 559 in earning this award. If you have the opportunity to talk to Nate, congratulate him and learn more about how you too can earn this national level award.
