The Scout Expo is an action-packed event sponsored by the Sequoyah Council that provides Scouts the opportunity to show off everything Scouting has to offer our 16-county region, all while earning money and great prizes.
Coupon books are available for $2 each and feature a value of more than $75, as well as a ticket for admission to the Scout Expo. Books can be picked up from your troop leader. Be sure to look inside the tabloid at the great prize choices and decide which ones you would like to earn. We recommend you wear your Scouting uniform to promote your troop when sharing these special bargains with the community.
Scouts will receive $2 in Expo Cash for every coupon book sold in increments of 10. All funds collected and coupon books that are not sold must be turned in to your Scouting leader before the Expo in order to receive your Expo Cash. All Expo Cash is redeemable at the Prize Redemption Center on the day of the Scout Expo. Prizes cannot be claimed after the Expo.
Every Scout and Scouting leader who participates in a booth at the Expo will receive a special participation patch. A camping patch is also available to those who camp at the Expo.
Tweetsie Trail Program
The Sequoyah Council, in conjunction with the National Boy Scouts of America (BSA), has created a BSA Historic Trail Program for the Tweetsie Trail. By participating in this program, you can earn recognition for yourself and your unit.
Summer Cub Program
The Sequoyah Council offers a variety of summer camp opportunities for boys who have completed kindergarten through fifth grade, including day, weekend and overnight camps.
While the programs offered at each camp vary, each will feature activities such as advancement, archery, BB shooting, campfires, crafts, games, nature hikes, skits, songs and sports.
Make plans to attend one or more of these awesome camps this summer.
The Sequoyah Council sends contingents to Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, New Mexico, on a bi-annual basis. Our next contingent will travel in 2018.
Philmont Scout Ranch is a large, rugged ranch covering 140,177 acres (219.027 square miles) of wilderness in the Sangre de Cristo Mountain region of the Rocky Mountains. The ranch, formerly the property of oil baron Waite Phillips and now owned by the Boy Scouts of America, is a national high adventure base in which crews of Scouts and Venturers take part in backpacking expeditions and other outdoor activities.
Scouts and Venturers must be 14 years of age, or have completed grade eight and be at least 13 years of age to participate in the Philmont Scouting experience.
Florida Sea Base
Serving more than 13,000 participants annually, the Florida National High Adventure Sea Base is a unique Scouting program that offers aquatics programs found nowhere else. Whether your interests lie in sailing, scuba diving, rustic camping on an undeveloped barrier island, fishing or a combination of everything, this is the place for your Troop, Team, Crew, Sea Ship or Explorer Post.
Sea Base offers 15 different adventures out of four locations: two in the Florida Keys, one in the U.S. Virgin Islands and one in Marsh Harbour, a town in Abaco Islands, Bahamas.
Northern Tier Canoe Base
Northern Tier is the gateway to the Boy Scouts of America’s National Cold Weather Camping Development Center in the Great North Woods of northern Minnesota and Canada. Each summer, Scouts from three wilderness canoe bases explore millions of acres of pristine lakes, meandering rivers, dense forests and wetlands in Northern Minnesota, Northwest Ontario and Northeast Manitoba. In the winter, Northern Tier is home to the Okpik Cold-Weather Camping Program, a premier winter high adventure program for the BSA.
Scouts must be 14 years old, or have completed grade eight and be 13 years old by the time of arrival to participate.
