Cy-Fest

November TBD, 2017

Lone Star College-CyFair Campus

10:00 am to 2:00 pm

Cy-fest logoCy-Fest is a day of free family fun and it’s our gift to the community! Lone Star College employees, students and community members donate resources and volunteer time to make this event possible each year. 

Volunteers from Big Cypress, Copperhead and Soaring Eagle Districts run booths and promote Scouting. Packs, troops, crews and ships are invited to participate in this community event and showcase a fun Scouting activity just like we do for Scout Fair in the spring.  If your unit is not participating but you would still like to volunteer, sign up as an individual and help us show the Cy-Fair Community what Scouting is all about!

If you're signing up as an individual, there are two shifts available, 8:00 - 11:00 am and 11:00 am - 2:00 pm.

Visit the CyFest Scout Planning Committee Facebook Page for the latest information and to find out how you can help!

Scouting Safely

Safety is Your Responsibility posterThe BSA's Commitment to Safety is ongoing and we want you to know that the safety of our youth, volunteers, staff, and employees cannot be compromised. The Boy Scouts of America puts the utmost importance on the safe and healthy environments for its youth membership. The Sam Houston Area Council takes great strides to ensure the safety of its youth as well as the adult volunteer leadership that interacts with them. 

BSA Guide to Safe Scouting policies must be followed. All participants must follow Youth Protection Guidelines at all Scouting events. Highlights include:

  • Two-deep leadership on all outings required.  
  • One-on-one contact between adults and youth members is prohibited. 
  • The buddy system should be used at all times. 
  • Discipline must be constructive.

Health and safety must be integrated into everything we do, to the point that no injuries are acceptable beyond those that are readily treatable by Scout-rendered first aid. As an aid in the continuing effort to protect participants in a Scout activity, the BSA National Health and Safety Committee and the Council Services Division of the BSA National Council have developed the "Sweet Sixteen" of BSA safety procedures for physical activity. These 16 points, which embody good judgment and common sense, are applicable to all activities.
