Remember Me

Battlefield District

The Battlefield District encompasses that portion of Hanover and Henrico Counties east of Interstate 95 and all of Charles City and New Kent Counties and serves 77 Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops and Venture Crews whose aggregate youth membership exceeds 1,700. The fact that the Battlefield District is a Quality District is due primarily to efforts of the many adult volunteers who serve at the unit and District levels and give the leadership and time that is necessary for the District to be able to provide the many quality programs and services to our scouting youth.

The Battlefield District is proud to be a part of the Heart of Virginia Council, Boy Scouts of America...

Online Cub Leader Training

The big news is that Cub Scout leaders can now receive full training online. Cub Scout Leader Position-Specific Training is now live, along with Youth Protection training, Cub Scout Fast Start, and This Is Scouting. All are located on the e-learning page on myscouting.org. Cub Scout Leader Position-Specific Training is made up of three parts. The first part is an introduction to Scouting and to the Cub Scout pack. The second part explains how Cub Scouts have fun in the pack and den, and the third part has specific training for each of the major Cub Scout leader positions: Cubmaster, den leader, pack committee, and pack trainer.

Please visit My Scouting and evaluate the new online training.

Old Dominion Trail Leader's Guide

The purpose of the Trail is to promote an understanding of the historical and cultural role involving great Americans beginning with Patrick Henry’s “Liberty or Death” speech through the development of our country. The hiker will hear the names of many famous people and their contributions to this new nation.

The guide will enable you to provide your Scouts with additional facts throughout the trail, as well as basic instructions. Please read it thoroughly before leading your boys through this activity.

If you have questions or need additional information, please contact the Heart of Virginia Council, Boy Scouts of America (804) 355-4306.
