You may also pre-register by calling the Allohak Council office at (304)422-4507.
Pre-registration is open through October 31.

Registration confirmation is not a computer-automated process. We take the time to review each registration and we send a confirmation as soon as we can. Please remember that this event is managed largely by volunteers so be patient. We promise to get to you as soon as possible. The earlier you register, the lower the cost, and sooner you’ll receive your confirmation.

Pre-Registration Check-in will be just inside the main entrance in front of the Multipurpose room. The opening and dismissal will be in the Multipurpose Room.

Walk-Ins: Walkup Registrations are welcome on the day of the University of Scouting. Registration will open at 7am on the morning off the event. We do the best we can to move the registration process along as quickly as possible but it does take time. If you register on the day of the event, please leave yourself plenty of time to complete registration. Please bring your address, a phone number where your adult can be reached during the event, your troop number, and an email address so we can follow up after the event.

Allohak Council NESA Committee announcement http://WWW.ALLOHAK.ORG/index.php/news/allohak-council-nesa-committee-announcement http://WWW.ALLOHAK.ORG/index.php/news/allohak-council-nesa-committee-announcement#comments Sat, 18 Aug 2018 13:21:28 +0000 Joseph Testerman http://WWW.ALLOHAK.ORG/?p=21205

The Allohak Council NESA Awards Sub-Committee, Chaired by NOESA recipient Jeremy Starkey is seeking qualified Eagle Scout nominations for the NESA Outstanding Eagle Scout Award until 31 August 2018. Please email Awards chairman Jeremy Starkey at with nominating Eagle Scout bio that depicts the Eagle Scouts achievements as well as their distinguished service at the local, state, regional, and/or national level.

The nominee must be an Eagle Scout in good standing with the Boy Scouts of America and must either be registered with or have their primary residence within the boundaries of the nominating council. No length of time is required to have passed since earning the Eagle Rank.

The NESA Outstanding Eagle Scout Award (NOESA) was established during the BSA’s 100th Anniversary in 2010 with the first recipient to receive the award a year later. The award was created to recognize notable Eagle Scouts who had either performed distinguished service at the local, state, or regional level or who were known nationally, but had not yet met the 25-year tenure as an Eagle for the Distinguished Eagle Scout Award. Often, worthy candidates for the NOESA have inspired others through their actions and have devoted a lifetime to their profession, avocation, community, and beliefs, at great sacrifice to themselves and their families.
