Celebrate 100 Years of Scouting in the Grand Canyon Council

This year, 2021, is the 100th year that the Grand Canyon Council has supported Scouts in Arizona. Come celebrate this milestone achievement with a series of fun activities and new patches!

First, as announced on Grand Canyon Council Program Live!, the council has a new council service patch (CSP) that celebrates our Centennial! The patch was designed by Alana Labelle, a den leader and assistant cubmaster for Pack 71 in the Gila River district. The patch features the Arizona state flag with a “100” and BSA fleur-de-list superimposed on it with “CENTENNIAL 1921-2021.” The selection committee loved the classic, clean design that emphasizes our connection with Arizona. 

Second, the council has a new Centennial Rocker that goes around the World Crest on the uniform shirt! This cool patch celebrating our Centennial was designed by Mike Minis, who serves as the advisor to the Order of the Arrow Lodge’s trading post. Thanks, Mike, for another great Arizona inspired patch and a neat way to connect Scouting in the Grand Canyon Council with the World Movement!

Third, we have a slate of Centennial celebrations planned for this year:

• Geronimo Centennial Picnic, Saturday, July 24 at Camp Geronimo

• Centennial Pow-Wow, Saturday, November 20 at the Heard Scout Pueblo, Hosted By the Order of the Arrow

• Celebrate Scouting at the Heard, Saturday, December 11

Additionally, Districts will offer Centennial-themed events for all ages throughout 2021. 

Last, but certainly not least, Grand Canyon Council has a special Centennial Award that can be earned by Scouts and Scouters. The Centennial logo was designed by Gumby Petersen, long-time aquatics chair and commissioner at Camp Geronimo and echoes both Scouting history and the Arizona State Centennial not too long ago! Here are the requirements to earn the Grand Canyon Council Centennial Award (must be earned during 2021).
