Montana Council is considered one of the best councils in the nation and it’s because of you, the Scouts, Scouters and families that make up our community. 

Gathering together to celebrate and recognize all you do for the youth in Montana is not only one of our favorite events, but one we take seriously. This is the time of year we get to share our admiration and appreciation for you and get to say thanks, for being the support that keeps Scouting in Montana alive.

The Friday night Scouter Appreciation Dinner theme is Jimmy Buffet and is hosted by the Black Otter District.

This is one of the not-to-be-missed events of the year!  No matter what your position is in Scouting, there is content here for you!
