Scout Fair Booths:
Every unit is encouraged to sponsor a booth at the fair. This is your opportunity to show our community what Scouting is all about, and to share your Scouting skills with fellow Scouts and Scout Leaders. In the past, booths have included craft stations (Cub Scouts), rope making (Boy Scouts), orienteering (Venturing), and law enforcement (Exploring). Keep it simple and fun. By involving all the Scouts and parents in your unit, booth preparation and set-up, manning and take down can be shared to keep it simple and make it fun. Each unit hosting a booth will receive a ribbon. For more information regarding booth rules and regulations, please refer to the Scout Fair booth safety guidelines. For questions, contact Jeritha Parker
. Units must register for a booth by March 31, 2015.
Service Units: Units can participate in Scout Fair as a service unit. Service units should check-in at the council service unit booth upon arrival.
