Counselor Information

   Have 1 or 2 adults register your Scouts. There must be at least 2 adult linked to your registration site before you can add a Scout.  Be sure that you have toggled down to the Quapaw event toward the top of the registration page. 

   I suggest putting the email address for a troop adult who will be at the event where it asks for the Scout's email, in case I need to email an entire class about a class change that day. Be sure the email is a correct one, or I can't send a mass email.

 Send your payment to Quapaw Area Council, $10 per Scout. No charge for adults. Contact Jim Britt, Dean, with questions, 501-912-1449,


Unit Sign-up Instructions

 If you have your profile validated with your troop, watch the registration video. ALSO so sure that you have toggled to our event on May 7 and have selected a troop adult before trying to register your first Scout.
