Computer Crimes Camp: is targeted to rising 9th to 12th grade students who are interested in learning about cybercrimes.

Sorry parents … no big kids allowed!

Be Weather Smart! Be Prepared! Tornadoes in the Southwest, afternoon summertime thunderstorms coupled with the Atlantic Hurricane season beginning this Saturday, June 1st, it is important that all of us Scouts, Scouters and parents be mindful of changing weather patterns in our area. Does your family have a severe weather plan and/or evacuation plan in case of emergencies? History has taught us that we are not immune to these types of storms even if we are inland. BSA, The state of North Carolina, and FEMA all have excellent resources available to us on hazardous weather training. Please visit: www.scouting.org/courses/hws/ws_news, www.readync.org, and, www.fema.gov.
Apache Web Site Helps: Please go to our district web site at www.mccapache.org for two segments that we believe will be beneficial to both units and adult leaders. The first segment is aptly named Around the Campfire where unit leaders, parents and friends can see potential options for a weekend or day trip, suggestions where Eagle projects are needed, and just good old discussion topics. There is also an excellent resource guide for new parents to learn more about the BSA terminology as well as suggested gear guides for your families.
There is also a Fundraising Section where units can post specific information about an upcoming fund raising event so folks outside their immediate unit may have the option to participate and help out.
Please check out our web site: www.mcctraining.org for the latest and greatest training opportunities and course descriptions. Here is one of the upcoming events:
♣ National Youth Leadership Training June 18-23, Camp Grimes
♣ District Committee Training August 22, 6:30 – 9:00 PM, TBD
♣ Powder Horn (MCC + CNCC) September 6th-7th Camp Barnhardt
