District News & Events
2014-2015 Scouting Year
View the 2015-16 Mission Peak District Calendar (Rev 5/22/15).
The calendar covers the dates 5/16/15-5/29/16. The District Committee has decided to change how we communicate what we consider to be the key District and Council dates for the next 12 months. We are no longer going to send you the "very" busy District Calendar that we have used in the past and have instead decided to give you a one page very readable document instead.
We will try to limit revisions, but they will be made as needed. So be sure to check it out when you see a new revision date. Changes will be highlighted in yellow.
- 5/9/2015 - Initial Revision
- 5/22/2015 - Moved Webelos Woods 2016 to 5/13/16 - 5/15/16

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.

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.
