Attention All California Units and Volunteers

Mandated Reporter Training is Now Due

Please make sure your adult volunteers have taken the training.

We're getting closer to being able to have all the information and documents we need to do the LiveScan (fingerprinting) service.  Soon you will be able to travel to a nearby California LiveScan Service Center near you.

Your District Executive will keep you posted. Please take the time now to ensure that your adult volunteers have taken the necessary training required by California law.

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Mandated Reporter training is now due., print the certificate at the completion of the course.

Volunteers will need to upload this to the Nevada Area Council.  Volunteer Compliance Policy

This will be required in addition to Scouting's Youth Protection Training (YPT) as it has Scouting-specific information.

Thank you for your attention to this very important matter.

Dare To Rebuild

The Nevada Area Council will be working with Plumas County Environmental Health to determine the next steps needed to get started on removing dangerous materials from Camp Fleischmann. This is not a simple process, it is very detailed which includes soil sampling as well as removing debris from camp.  Until this crucial first step is completed any action at camp in terms of rebuilding is on hold.  If you are interested in serving on a committee related to the rebuilding, please click on the Rebuild link below.


Did you know Smith's has a local charity program? Smith's will donate to local Scouting programs through Nevada Area Council by giving a small percentage of the dollars spent by you to the council. Funds are given based on the shopping you do every day. Once you link your card to Nevada Area Council, all you have to do is shop at Smith's and swipe your Shopper's Card. That's Easy!!!
