September is Boy Scout Month at Bass Pro Shops!

We are pleased to announce the 2014 Boy Scout Month at Bass Pro Shops; “Providing a Compass for Life!” This promotion will last the entire month of September.

Bass Pro Shops continues to be a generous partner and sponsor of the Boy Scouts of America. Over the past three years, this promotion has generated more than $300,000 for the BSA and, more importantly, provided opportunities for hundreds of young people to participate in merit badge workshops with expert counselors and phenomenal materials. We are grateful to Bass Pro Shops and proud to count them among our partners.

C.A.M.P. Photo Contest!

We’re doing it again! But this time we are sponsoring a C.A.M.P. contest. What does C.A.M.P. mean to you? Show us! But we think it means to Capture Amazing Memories & Photos… While camping, of course!

Each week, a new photo will be selected as the Mid-America Council's Facebook cover photo. All appropriate photos will be added to the Council's Shutterfly page.

This photo contest is open to Mid-America Council Scouts and Scouters. Its theme: C.A.M.P. Send pictures of your Scouts learning to cook in a Dutch oven. Submit photos of Scouts participating in STEM at Camp Cedars. Show us smiling faces and Scouts having a good time. High adventure? Yes, please! Learning first aid? You know it! First time at Cub Scout resident camp? Show us what you did! Last year to go to Camp Cedars? Capture it and share it with us!

Not only do you have a chance to win an awesome camping package, but your photo may be featured in future promotional material. Pretty cool!
