To implement the program of the Boy Scouts of America, the Last Frontier Council has four program subcommittees:
The council training committee’s job is to get adult leaders trained. One of the keys to the success of the Scouting program is trained volunteer leadership. Second only to the selection of the right person for each responsibility is his or her training in the purposes of Scouting, the methods through which these purposes are achieved, and the techniques of their individual job.
The council camp promotion and outdoor committee provides outdoor programs that most units are unable to provide on their own, and outdoor programs are often the main reason youth join a Scout unit. From Cub Scout day camp to high-adventure programs, this committee helps make exciting outdoor programs available for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturers.
The council activities and civic service committee’s job is to provide mountaintop experiences that dramatically capture the attention of the whole Scouting community: a Scout color guard at a city hall ceremony, a presentation of the Award of Merit to leaders at a district recognition dinner, an exciting competition of Scouting skills, or a meaningful community clean-up project. We help units make these great events happen in the lives of Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, Venturers, and leaders.
The council advancement committee implements procedures that help achieve the BSA advancement program. The committee helps Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops, Varsity teams, and Venturing crews succeed in helping youth members advance in rank. If they advance, they will have a good experience and will grow in their Scouting adventure.
