2014 National Law Enforcement Exploring Conference
The National Law Enforcement Conference is conducted every second year and is attended by thousands of Law Enforcement Explorers and adult leaders. They come together for a week of team and individual competitions, seminars, demonstrations, exhibits, recreation and fun.
This year this is being held on July 14-19 2014 at Indiana University in Bloomington Indiana. Northwest Sub urban Exploring Police Posts are attending this competition. At this date, most of our Police posts are planning on attending and will be well represented by our finely trained posts.
The NWSC Exploring District sends them off with all the best wishes and good luck as we know how hard the Explorers and their leaders have worked for this competition. Good Luck and have fun!

OKPIK COLD WEATHER CAMPING COURSE 2014/15 REGISTER NOW!
Registration is now open on Double Knot for the 2014/15 OKPIK Cold Weather Camping Course at http://nwsc.doubleknot.com/event/okpik-201415/1413178
Boy Scout camping is a fun, all season activity. So why stop the fun just because of some snow? Snow adds to the fun IF you are prepared... and that's where OKPIK comes in.
Okpik has two aims:
• To train the individual to BE PREPARED and be able to enjoy the outdoors and a camping experience in cold weather (any temperature below 50-degrees, and let's face it, its not always warm and dry when Scouts camp).
• To train the trainer. We want to train Scout leaders and experienced Scouts in the unique skills of cold weather camping so that they can take the knowledge and skills they have learned on the course and bring them back to their units.
Ultimately, we want to see all Scout units extend their camping season to all 12 months of the year. Check the Okpik web page at http://www.nwsc.org/training_okpik.php for complete information.
