Youth Safety - Our Ongoing Commitment to Keeping Kids Safe
The idea that a Scout should treat others as he or she wants to be treated—a Scout is kind—is woven throughout the programs and literature of the Boy Scouts of America. When a Scout follows the principles of the Scout Oath and Scout Law, bullying and hazing situations should never occur.
ALL Council Facilities Closed
All Northern Lights Council Service Centers, offices and camps will be closed through April 20.
Watch here for continuing updates.
Virtual Council Office Hours
If you have a Scouting question or need some assistance, we have scheduled three dates when we will have a council representative online to talk to. Those dates are:

Thursday, April 2 - 7:00 to 8:30 pm

We will be using Go to Meeting for each of these. Click here to join the video conference, or you can call by phone (877) 309-2073. Access code is 674-691-709.
Additional dates may be added in the future.
A Virtual Roundtable is an online session designed to share knowledge, insights and experiences among Scouting members. Content is focused on a specific topic of interest or concern.
Join us on Thursday, April 9 at 7:00 pm for the Northern Lights Council's first ever "council-wide" virtual roundtable. You need to click here to register to participate and instructions will be emailed to you before the meeting starts.
The topics for this roundtable will be Scouting at Home, conducting Virtual Scout meetings and Program Planning for the fall and next year.
We encourage all of our Cub Scout Packs to participate in the BSA Adopt a School program to help build, maintain and strengthen relationships with the local elementary school.
As schools across the country continue to limit distribution of information about Scouting to students, it is important that we have good relationships with school principals, school board members and other educators. Strong relationships may mean the difference in being able to communicate what Scouting offers for familes.
