Super Heros

Super heros is this year’s summer Cub Scout residence camp theme in the Allohak Council. Since 1922, Super Hero Island (Camp Kootaga) has been committed to the idea that every child should experience carefree, constructive outdoor activities. Camp Kootaga, part of the George A. Stevenson Scout Reservation, lies along the Hughes River in Wirt County, WV and is 18 miles from Parkersburg, WV on State Route 47. The reservation encompasses over 634 acres of hilly woodlands, which makes it a natural environment for the outdoor activities of Cub Scouting and provides acres of wilderness to live out adventures.

We pride ourselves on our ability to select, train, and support amazing camp counselors, many of whom were once campers themselves. It is these counselors’ ability to create new and exciting adventures for the group and to listen and connect with campers as individuals that keeps kids coming back to camp year-after-year.

Camp Kootaga creates lifelong memories by providing fun-filled days where children feel happy and safe.

SOME CHANGES THAT LEADERS NEED TO KNOW ABOUT! http://WWW.ALLOHAK.ORG/index.php/news/some-changes-that-leaders-to-know-about http://WWW.ALLOHAK.ORG/index.php/news/some-changes-that-leaders-to-know-about#comments Thu, 07 Sep 2017 20:44:18 +0000 Joseph Testerman http://WWW.ALLOHAK.ORG/?p=17763 From the BSA National Office:

Effective immediately, there is a new position available to help the unit welcome new members and their parents, introduce them into the unit, and get them off to a great start in Scouting. the new positions, called New Member Coordinator, is available for every type of Scouting unit (Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venturing) and Explorer posts and clubs. Its purpose is not only to help recruit new members to join the unit, but also to engage new youth and their families in the unit experience so they feel “welcomed”.

The New Member Coordinator position is a registered adult leader position requiring an adult leader application, Youth Protection training and a criminal background check. A unit can have one or more new member coordinators.

The position of New Member Coordinator replaces the position of parent coordinator and unit membership chair. These positions will be expired at the end of the year and will no longer be available. All leaders currently in those positions will receive several communications to encourage them to become new member coordinators.

Youth Protection Training Requirements changes
Effective September 1, Youth Protection training is required for all leaders at the time of registration. Applications from new leaders must be accompanied by a Youth Protections training completion certificate, which will be filed with the application.

Effective with December 1, registratin fees will be $33.

Effective for the 2018 BSA summer camp season, any adult accompanying a Boy Scout troop to a resident camp or other Scouting adtivity and participating 3 nights or more must be registered as a leader, including completion of a CBC and YPT, even if they are the parent of a youth on the trip.

The new is a site worth its weight in (blue and) gold!
(Posted on August 12, 2015 by Bryan Wendell in Cub Scouting, Scouting Tips, Technology)

Every so often, a website comes along that changes the game. That’s

Cub Scout leaders, before you accuse me of hyperbole, check out the new for yourself. You’ll find an official Boy Scouts of America site that links you to everything you need for successful Cub Scouting.

You can shop for gear, get updates about new Cub Scout adventures and requirements, find a pack near you, download recruiting resources, and check out the Learning Library.

It’s the Learning Library I’m most excited about. It’s a constantly growing, indispensable resource that will help you administer a quality program. You’ll find info on:

         - The basics of den meetings and building strong dens
         - Delivering the required and elective adventures
         - Den planning, administration and advancement
         - Positive youth development
         - Working with boys and Cub Scouts with special needs

The Learning Library section for Den Leaders is live now. Sections for Cubmasters, committee members, chartered organization representatives, and parents and guardians are coming soon. As the Learning Library grows, you’ll find all the information and resources you need, customized to you and your position within the organization.

BSA pro Bob Scott and the Cub Scout team created a site that’s fun, engaging, easy-to-use and — most important of all — full of resources you want and need.

But the team’s open to feedback. If you have something you’d like to see, or if something isn’t working the way it should, contact them at

What about Cub Hub, the predecessor to It’s still around, at And it’s still full of fun Scouting ideas and the latest adventures in the world of Cub Scouting.

OK, enough from me. Head over to and take a look around.
