Who: YOU! The District Dinner is where we recognize those in the district who are outstanding volunteers. There are three progressive levels of awards to be handed out - District Certificate, District Plaque, and the District Award of Merit. Come out and cheer on this year’s awardees! This year we will announce the Certificate and Plaque awards, but you’ll have to attend the dinner to learn who will be awarded the District’s highest adult volunteer award, the District Award of Merit. Stay tuned. Many units also selected a volunteer for the Unit Spark Plug Award.
The theme this year is "Western".
Mission Peak District Award Nominations
Is there someone in your unit that is an outstanding Scouter? The online nomination form will remain active for you to submit your nominations at any time.
Need to fill out a tour permit? Check out the latest information on filing a tour permit (updated: March 1, 2011).
All registered Cub Scout leaders and "direct contact" active adults need to keep their Youth Protection Training current, which is not more than 2 year old. This course can be taken on line through MyScouting, or when available through a face to face course.
You do not need to be a registered leader nor do you need a Member ID (you can enter this information later) to take the online course. You will need to set up a MyScouting account to take the online YPT. Here's a link to the Boy Scouts of America page where the new YPT requirements are discussed and where My Scouting can be accessed: http://scouting.org/Training/YouthProtection.aspx. Here's the link to the MyScouting sign-in page: https://myscouting.scouting.org/_layouts/MyScouting/login.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2f_layouts%2fAuthenticate.aspx%3fSource%3d%252f&Source=%2f.
Remember: When you take a face to face training course be sure to bring your Scout ID card, which includes your Scout ID number. If you are unable to find your Scout ID card, please get your Scout ID number from your Cubmaster or Committee Chair or print a temporary Scout membership card from the Internet Advancement section of MyScouting.

(Scouts should have a Blue Card signed by their Scoutmaster before actually starting on a merit badge). Merit Badge Counselors will sit at a table marked with the list of Merit Badges offered.

Boy Scouts of America offers terrific programs that help youth grow their character, citizenship and fitness (mental, moral and physical).
- For boys in the 1st - 5th grade, the program is called Cub Scouts, and they are organized into groups called packs, which are typically organized near a school or house of worship.
- For boys in the 6th-12th grade, the program is called Boy Scouts, and they are organized into groups called troops.
- For girls and boys 14 years of age or 13 years of age and completion of the eighth grade and under 21 years of age, there are additional programs. Venturers are organized into crews. Explorers are organized into posts.
For more information on joining Boy Scouts of America or finding a unit in the Fremont, Union City, Newark area, contact Steve Armstrong email@example.com or Justin Brown firstname.lastname@example.org. A list of open units and their meeting notes is posted on our About page.
