Cat Scouts is a community of cats who are committed to living life The Cat Scout Way. The Cat Scout Handbook is their guide on this adventure. Cat Scouts earn merit badges, enjoy the camaraderie of fellow scouts around the campfire, learn Cat Scoutcraft, and do service projects in their communities. They learn self reliance and survival skills. They wear spiffy uniforms. Girlcat Scouts sell Cat Scout Cookies on card tables in front of Piggly Wigglys to raise money for Cat Scout activities.
MEMBERSHIP IS FREE and members will be entitled to a discount on The Cat Scout Handbook when it is published.

Just because you want to join Cat Scouts doesn’t mean it’s a slam dunk. No siree! We’re not one of those social networking sites where you just type in your email and you’re in. Cat Scouts requires that you complete an application that demonstrates your commitment to living life The Cat Scout Way and fulfill some basic requirements. The admissions board will review your application and notify you if you are accepted.

It is with a heavy heart that we honor Scout Basil as our featured Scout. Scout Basil has departed for The Bridge. He was 16 years young.
Basil was a celebrity, the inspiration for a best selling book, Basil the Bionic Cat. He headed up the Cat Scouts’ UK regiment and was a loyal scout, active at many Cat Scout activities. He will be missed. Cat Scouts honored him around the campfire this weekend, and although Cat Scouts are known for their bravery, there was not a dry eye in the group.
You can keep up with the continuing adventures of Basil’s family at Bionic Basil’s blog.
The Powerful Paws Patrol was formed in 2014, headed up by Scout Tiger. We have 16 members, many of whose peeps work, so some of us are not as active or as visible around Camp as we’d like to be. When important activities come up, however, the Paws are always ready to join in Camp-wide activities, as well as host some events. Our Patrol’s paws symbol represents the powerful Cat Scout values of friendship and loyalty, very important values to us Paws. Because so many of our peeps work, we embody friendship and loyalty to our patrolmates by making sure that no one gets left behind at events. We Paws are always ready to help and comfort those in need.
Cat Scouts is not just about fun and adventure. Scouts also purrform service projects every month. We send birthday and holiday cards to residents of two facilities for the handicapped in Ohio and New York. The recipients often have limited contact from their families, so the cards mean the world to them. They mean a lot to the scouts who send them, too, giving warm and fuzzies that spur them on to contribute even more to their communities.
