Important Registration Information


Our national office has made an important change to this upcoming charter renewal period: All adults registering must complete a new background disclosure form. The BSA will now perform periodic rechecks of criminal backgrounds to support the continued safety of youth in our programs. Again, this is for all adults no matter when the last application was submitted.

All registered adults with a valid email address on file should have received an email from National with the forms linked below. This is a legitimate email and we encourage all adult leaders to review and sign the new disclosure.

Background Check Disclosure

California State Law Disclosures (Non-Credit)

Additional Disclosures & Background Check Authorization

 Turn the signed disclosure into your unit leader to be submitted with your 2020 recharter. Please note that these steps must be completed before your 2020 annual registration can be processed. A print signature is required for this document. Electronic signatures will not be accepted.

Service Project


On Saturday, October 12, over 50 Cub Scouts, scouts, and Bureau of Land Management staff came together for the National Public Lands Day service projects at Mojave Trails National Monument.
The service projects are part of an ongoing restoration, fencing and signing action within the Mojave Trails National Monument at the Sheephole Valley Wilderness. The goal is to reduce vehicle intrusion, remove linear disturbance, and improve forage for threatened and endangered species. These service projects consisted of:
1) Located 24 miles east of Twentynine Palms, Cub Scouts cleaned up micro-trash at one area that served as our main campsite.
2) Located 46 miles east of Twentynine Palms, replanting branches of creosote to cover an old mining old road and putting up wire fencing to block access to the road into Sheephole Valley Wilderness.
3) located 50 miles east of Twentynine Palms, placing posts into the ground to repair and extend fencing to restrict vehicular access to another part of Sheephole Valley Wilderness.

Any service project that asks scouts to travel 2-3 hours in a vehicle with a high clearance and 4 wheel drive to a remote area of the Mojave Desert is asking a lot of even the most dedicated volunteers. The scouts that made the long trip to the service project showed a dedication to cheerful service that can only be measured with several exclamation points and words "WOW WOW WOW".
The efforts of our single incredible day of service will be measured over the course of years when the only evidence that humans were ever there is no evidence at all, only the beauty of a natural unbroken desert landscape.

Special thanks to: Colton Charles, Ken Charles, and Cynthia Blessum for organizing and overseeing the service projects; Sandy Boch and Troop 1973 for an outstanding job at providing and preparing the food to feed everyone; the members of Packs 78 and Troops 77, 268, 201, 1776, 157, and Venture Crew 76 for your work at the service projects; the members of Aca, Navajo, and Serrano Chapters of Cahuilla Lodge; and Mona Daniels from the other officials from the Needles Bureau of Land Management.
