Popcorn

The Laurel Highlands Council and Trail’s End thank all the units and Scout families that participate in the annual popcorn fundraiser. Your efforts help maintain our beautiful camps, fund Scout outreach programs, and send hundreds of Scouts to camp each year who would not be able to afford Scouting otherwise.

BSA Silver Beaver Award and Knot 

SILVER BEAVER AWARD

The Silver Beaver Award is for registered Scouters of exceptional character who have provided distinguished service within the Laurel Highlands Council and their communities.

The Silver Beaver Award was introduced in 1931 and is the most significant council level distinguished service award for adults in the Boy Scouts of America. Recipients of this award are registered Scouters who have made an impact on the lives of youth through service given to the council and community through hard work, self-sacrifice, dedication, and years of service. It is given to those who do not actively seek it. Only those persons who have been nominated by their Scouting peers are considered.

The 2022 Class of Silver Beaver Recipients will be awarded on Saturday, February 25, 2023 at the Laurel Highlands Council Recognition Luncheon at Stratigos Banquet Centre. Join us in celebrating these Scouters by registering here.
