Events

January 24, 2015 (hanger drop off)
January 31, 2015 (food pick up)

A Cub Scout promises to "give goodwill" and a Boy Scout promises "to help other people at all times." There is no better way to show our Scouting Spirit than by participating in the annual Scouting for Food drive! Now is the time to show our community the Scouting values of being loyal, helpful, kind and cheerful.
 
On January 24 and 31, 2015, Scouts throughout the Sam Houston Area Council will help make a difference to fight hunger. Scouting for Food is the leading service program for Boy Scouts of America and is a part of the national BSA program - Good Turn for America. In partnership with the Houston Food Bank and "Souper Bowl of Caring," this council-wide service project begins Saturday, January 24, 2015 as Scouts distribute door hangers in their neighborhoods to announce the upcoming food drive. Scouts return the following Saturday, January 31, 2015 to pick up and deliver donations to their local food banks and pantries.

All participating Scouts will receive a 2015 Scouting for Food patch. The unit Scout Fair coordinator can pick up the patches at their district March Roundtables.

New Tellepsen Scout Camp to Open Soon 

As a part of the Council's commitment to achieve its new Camping Vision Statement: "Exemplary, Sustainable Outdoor Experiences and Creative Learning for 21st Century Youth and Their Leaders," a new camp for Scout troops and Venturing crews designed for weekend camping will open in the first quarter 2015. This new camp is located at the Bovay Scout Ranch and is named Tellepsen Scout Camp.
Tellepsen Scout Camp will have eight campsites that accommodate 48 individuals per site. Each campsite will have a 30'x40' pavilion. One shower and restroom facility will be available for every two campsites. It will have the council's largest rifle range and a 41-foot climbing tower. The rifle range will consist of four 50-yard high-powered rifle stations, four 100-yard high-powered rifle stations, a five stand shotgun range, 8 shooting stations for .22 rifles and pistols and an archery range. The climbing tower will have four rappelling stations of 11 feet, 22 feet, 32 feet and 41 feet.
 
The Tellepsen family has provided leadership to the Sam Houston Area Council for decades and has had three generations of Tellepsen family members involved in Scouting. Howard T. Tellepsen, Jr. and his son, Trent Tellepsen, both serve on the Council's Board of Directors and are the Co-Vice Chairs of the Tellepsen Scout Camp Design and Development Committee. Karen Tellepsen, sister of Howard T. Tellepsen, Jr., is also a Council Member-at-large and has been an active participant on Winter Camp staff for a number of years and also hosted receptions for many international Scouters. Howard T. Tellepsen, Jr., a Distinguished Eagle Scout, served as the Council Chairman of the Board in 1999 and his father, Howard Tellepsen, Sr., served as the Council Chairman of the Board in 1952-1953.
Reservations for unit camping will begin 1/15/2015 for March camping dates.  Please remember unit reservations are subject to change depending on readiness of campsites and activity/program areas.
