Seeonee Award for Cub Scouts/North Star Award for Beaver Scouts

The top section awards for Beavers and Cubs for Odawa Area (North Star Award and Seeonee Award) will be handed out on Sunday morning at the year-end camp. The top awards for the older sections, Chief Scout Awards and Queen’s Venturer Awards, will be handed out on the Friday evening of camp.

Date:   June 11, 2017
Time:   Morning, during Scouts’ Own
Where:  Apple Hill Scout Reserve

Print off the junior section certificates ahead of time and bring them to Apple Hill to hand to the youth. If you wish to purchase a plaque, you can do so at the Scout Shop.

If your Beaver or Cub wants to receive his or her North Star Award or Seeonee Award at the Odawa Area June Camp on June 11, please email Susan Liddle at liddlesj at gmail.com with your group name and the youth’s name BY JUNE 7, so we have an idea of how many youth will receive an award.

Parents\family welcome.  Bring chairs and bug spray.
