News & Notes

Since the weather is cooling down, you can add a little sunshine and warmth to a stranger with these simple ideas.

October is National Bullying Prevention Month, and, according to new BSA data, Generation Z believes bullying is the biggest issue facing their generation and the number one issue they want to solve.

Membership Registration Fee

Coronado Area Council Scouters,

We want to make you aware that the National Council, Boy Scouts of America, is considering a fee increase for 2020. This fee increase will be effective beginning this recharter process. The amount of the increase will not be known until November 1, 2019.

We recognize the timing on this likely fee increase creates challenges as units have already begun collecting fees for their 2020 registration renewal process. The good news is we are in the middle of our popcorn sale and you can adjust your sales goal to help offset this increase!

Thank you for your patience while we work through this together. We will let you know the official amount as soon as we find out.

Finally, we want to ensure any youth wanting to join Scouting can regardless of financial barriers. Please know registration assistance is available upon request both from Coronado Area Council and the National Council.

Thank you again for your commitment in delivering a life changing program to the youth we serve.

Council President
