Thank you for visiting the Prince George's District. Our Cub Packs, Scout Troops, Venture Crews and Ships cover all of Prince George's County, Maryland from the I-95 corridor down to the border of Charles and Calvert Counties.
Our District "Key 3" (well, really Key 4) Executives are:

• 2014 Prince George's District Klondike:
The "Disaster On The Run" is Coming. Are You Ready?
When: January 24th-26th. 2014 (6PM Friday night to 9:4AM Sunday.)
Where: Camp Schmidt, 18501 Aquasko Road, Brandywine, MD 20613
Pre-Register By: January 20th, 2014.
Cost: $15/person pre-registered, $20/person for troops registering on-site.
(From the packet) Scouts should be prepared for several events to display Scout/Patrol Spirit. There will be a Scavenger Hunt, a Dessert Contest as well as awards for the patrol with the most Scout Spirit. Patrols will be expected to have a Patrol Flag, a Patrol Yell (which they should proudly yell when arriving at program events throughout the day) and Patrols will be graded at each station on their ability to work as a patrol as well as showing Patrol/Scout Spirit. This Klondike is not going to be very physical but all Scouts must have hydration and it is essential that even in the cold months everyone stays hydrated!
• District Re-Chartering Season is OPEN
On Sunday 1 December 2013, our District re-Charter season officially began. All Units are able to access the on-line system to begin the renewal process.
Please be aware that once your Charter is finalized, please DO NOT turn it into the Council office. The Commissioner Corps in Prince George's has assigned dates and locations for you to turn in your packet. It must be reviewed and signed off by one of our District Commissioner personnel and one of our District Executives. Charter packets (along with the payments) do get and have gotten lost in the past when not turned in properly.
• 2013 Journey-To-Excellence Unit Forms
Included in all of your Charter packets were two copies of your current 2013 JTE forms. One was a blank color copy and the other was a B&W copy that was pre-filled with BSA National data from DDC Ed Weeks. This was to get everyone started with filling it out.
Please work on the document and submit it with your Charter paperwork by 31 January. If your Unit 'did not achieve' this year, please include the form anyway. We would like to have a benchmark for all Units to see where we can help you improve for next year and years to come.
If you prefer to use the BSA National supplied electronic spreadsheet, it can be found at:
