Girls in Scouting Informational Session

The Boy Scouts of America’s volunteer-led board of directors recently unanimously approved a plan to welcome girls and young women into all Scouting programs.

There will be a General Informational session on this new policy held in Westlake Hills at St. John Neuman Catholic Church on Tuesday April 24th at 7:00 PM. Volunteers from Capitol Area Council will be on hand to answer questions and present what is known about the new Programs so far.

Please share the attached flier with everyone in your units, and your social media networks, so we can get as much coverage as possible to invite interested families!

Thanks to everyone who came to the April Roundtable! We had lots of great information presented, and a Bee Cave "Buzz" of props to Troop 454 for winning "King of Camp" at Camporee! If you're in any way, shape or form interested in Webelos Woods, be sure to plan to come to the May Roundtable on May 10, where we'll be kicking off Webelos Woods 2018.

Thank you to Mr. David Kaplan, District Training Chair, and Mr. Kim Eckert, District Advancement Chair, for their presentations on Youth Protection Training 2 (YPT2) and Path to Eagle, respectively. We have gathered the information presented at Roundtable here for your convenience. Please feel free to reach out to us any time if you'd like to share your thoughts and suggestions for Roundtable: we are here to serve YOU!  -- Scott, Annette and Chris, your Bee Cave District Roundtable Team --  (

Eagle Projects That Give True Service

Posted by cgibson on Apr 2 2018 - 12:27pm

Our schools in the Bee Cave District have benefited from an abundance of Eagle Projects, while neighboring schools within Austin and the Waterloo District - which often have a tremendous need, but very few Scouts - are overlooked. This presents a wonderful opportunity for our youth to honor the highest principles of Scouting, to give back to our community, and see how truly fortunate we truly are. I am Lisa Rushing, with Troop 70 here in the Bee Cave District; as a Special Education Teacher in the Waterloo District of Austin Independent School District, I have seen first hand the needs of these terrific kids, and the incredible impact that every effort makes. It inspired me to assemble a list of the key contacts of the schools within Ausin ISD that have the greatest needs, to help make it easier for our Eagle candidates to find projects that will truly make a difference.
