Welcome to the Battlefield District Webpage
Thank you for visiting our webpage. The Battlefield District serves Adams county and the greater Hanover area. Scroll down and check out our site for information about upcoming events and relevant District information. Head on over to our Facebook page and subscribe to our weekly e-newsletter for all the most recent updates in the District.
If you haven’t already signed up for the sale, we hope your Pack, Troop, or Crew will consider selling Camp Cards to support your scouts’ summer plans. Camp Cards are a perfect item to sell alongside your normal Spring fundraiser, as they’re $5 discount cards that provide enough savings on the face of the card to pay for almost 5 cards.
Our District has some of the most dedicated volunteers serving Battlefield scouts in different positions on our committee:
District Committee Chair – Robert Smith
District Commissioner – Beth Leckrone
District Vice Chair of Membership – Krystal Landis
District Vice Chair of Finance – Matt Phillips
We also have several Unit Commissioners that can assist your unit. If you need a commissioner for your unit, please reach out to email@example.com to get started.
Our upcoming roundtable dates are:
May 5, 2022
Our District Roundtables traditionally occur on the first Thursday of each month at 7:00pm 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.

I’d like to ask you to please consider making a donation to our 2022 FOS Family campaign. If you would like to make an online contribution to scouting in South-Central Pennsylvania today, head over to our council home page and click on the “Donate Now” widget to make an FOS contribution to the Battlefield District. Every dollar of your gift stays in our local program, providing critical funding for our council-owned camps, training supplies, and wonderful financial aid opportunities such as camperships.
Our 2022 Camp Card campaign is underway! If you need to order more cards, you can do so from our council’s Camp Card Sale webpage. You can still register your Pack, Troop, or Crew and place your first order at any time. Camp Cards are discount cards that scouts sell for $5 each, with discount offers at local businesses. The discount offers on the face of the card alone total over $20, making each camp card an instant value for whoever buys it. Scouts keep 50%-60% commission on each card they sell, which really helps them to save up for the summer camp of their dreams this summer.
