We’re pleased to announce our new registration system!

The Verdugo Hills Council has switched to a new, easier-to-use registration system.  It’s called “CampMaster.”

CampMaster is Scout focused, and designed by Scout leaders.  Unlike our old system, CampMaster is only focused on BSA registrations.

This means several things for parents and leaders.  It is easier to register your family, you won’t always have to create a “group.”  You’ll be able to sign up everyone on one page.  For leaders, registering your unit for events like Camporee is much simpler.  In addition to using credit or debit cards, you will now have the opportunity to pay by eCheck, using your unit’s checking account.  No more having to use your personal credit card and getting reimbursed.

Because the old system and CampMaster are two different systems, you will have to create a new account for yourself. Fortunately, the process is much easier than before.

We have trained many more people on the CampMaster program than we had on the old one.  The entire Staff in the Scout Shop will be able to register you online, right in the store.  They will be able to take credit cards, debit cards or checks as well.  We have four System Administrators, some Council Administrators, and several Council Registrars.  

Our local technical support email address will stay the same – techsupport@vhcbsa.org

Please contact us at techsupport@vhcbsa.org if you are having any problems with the new site.  Since we have several people that will receive your request, you will get a quicker response than if you contacted any of us individually.  The new system has an introductory slide show in .pdf format to show you how to set up an account and register for an event on the homepage.  We will be scheduling training for Unit leaders soon, at Roundtables and in your neighborhood.  Parents are invited too.

The new CampMaster program is only for event registrations at the moment.  Eventually, there will be a facility reservation system as well.  Until that’s ready though, we will continue to use Bookking for the Council calendar and event registrations.  See http://calendar.vhcbsa.org for the council calendar, and to make facility requests.

Thank you for all your support of the Verdugo Hills Council.  We’re excited to bring this new, simpler registration program to you.

Save our Pool Progress!

0528141018 imagejpeg_1

Progress is being made on all fronts for the pool at Camp Verdugo Oaks!

First, we have raised $6000 of our goal!  We have received several direct donations, sold many tiles, but we need to get more of our Save Our Pool cards out!  They are only $20 and each buyer receives free pizzas, burgers, chicken dinners, go karting, roller skating, massages, manicures for mom and so much more!  You don’t even have to sell them, (although $2.50 of each card goes to your pack, troop, team or crew!) but if every family bought just one, we’d have enough to finish the pool!  Call the Scout Shop today!

Adult leaders should always strive to conduct Scouting activities in a safe and prudent manner. Policies and guidelines have been established by the BSA because of the need to protect members from known hazards that have been identified through nearly 90 years of experience. Limitations on certain activities should not be viewed as stumbling blocks; rather, policies and guidelines are best described as stepping stones toward safe and enjoyable adventures.

The Verdugo Hills Council will endeavor to keep these policies up to date as required. If you have a question or wish to add another policy, contact the
Council Service Center.
