Camp Freeland Leslie Transition

As many of you are aware, the Three Fires Council Executive Board decided in March to put Camp Freeland Leslie up for sale. This was done to ensure that victims of past abuse are properly compensated and that Scouting can continue in the Three Fires Council community. While we are still looking forward to a happy, healthy 2021 summer camping season at CFL, an offer has been accepted on the property at this time.

We appreciate the feedback we have gathered from our Scouting family via town halls, email, and social media. We thank you for taking the time to be engaged in this matter. We know that this is a difficult and emotional decision for many of our members and alumni. Please use the resources below to help answer any questions you may have.

You Are Not Alone - Introducing Virtual Dens!

In light of the rapidly changing impact of the pandemic on our families and our Packs, the Three Fires Council is reaching out to help bridge some gaps. In January, we are establishing an alternative virtual Cub Scout Den program that will offer remote support and activities for families and Dens that are finding it challenging to meet, advance in their ranks, and/or have enough Den mates to enjoy all the fun of Scouting.

To accomplish this, we have a few Den Leaders already, but are looking for some more dedicated volunteers that are familiar with the Cub Scout program and have the ability to help some Cub Scouts continue their journey during the current pandemic. We need engaged volunteers to be Den Leaders to support Cub Scouts who do not feel comfortable participating in groups, Cub Scouts who have no Den Leaders for their rank, or Cub Scouts who have few or no other Scouts in their current dens. You may be a current Den Leader with a planned program already that could mentor a few more, or maybe a former Den Leader that could take a full den.

If you're interested in being a virtual den leader, contact Roberto Aguilar at Roberto.Aguilar@Scouting.org
