Attention all Arapahoe District Wood Badge Participants and Wood Badgers! At February's Roundtable there will be a Wood Badge Gala Event. At this event we will promote the 2016 Wood Badge courses, recognize all Scouters who have earned their Wood Badge beads and perform a Wood Badge beading ceremony for those who would so like to be beaded. This will be the only time this year that you can get beaded at the Arapahoe District Roundtable. If you would like to be beaded please contact John Dawson at jdawsonbsa@comcast.net. 


Internet Advancement

Review the Internet Advancement presentation to learn how you can take advantage of this great resource.
