Our upcoming roundtable dates are:
May 14, 2020; August 13, 2020; September 10, 2020
Our District Roundtables occur on the second Thursday of each month at 7:00pm in the sanctuary at Freedom Valley Church. If you’re a new leader looking for advice, guidance, or help from another experienced volunteer, this is the perfect place to discuss issues you’re having and figure out a way to solve it. Roundtable is also a great place for leaders of any age or experience level to come gather current information from the Battlefield District and New Birth of Freedom Council related to Camping events, Trainings, and other programs we offer.
IMPORTANT UPDATE!!! THE SPRING CAMPOREE HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO THE FALL; SEPTEMBER 25-27, 2020!

As we start the new year, we also start our 2020 FOS Family campaign. If you would like to make contribution to scouting in South-Central Pennsylvania online today, head over to our council home page and click on the “Donate Now” widget to make an FOS contribution to the Battlefield District. I’m pleased to report that we are leading the charge with $15,732(61.3%) pledged towards our District’s goal!
Camp Cards are a $5 localized discount/coupon card that scouts can sell to family, friends, and neighbors and earn up to 50% commission. That money can then be put towards any Scouting related expenses such as attending a weekend Camporee, Resident Camp, or a training like NYLT.
