  • 100th Anniversary Patch Design Opportunities
    In April 2024, the Southeast Louisiana Council will celebrate its 100th Anniversary as a Council.  To help celebrate the anniversary, we will be holding a 100th Anniversary Camperall for all levels of Scouting.  We would like your help to design the event patch and a special shoulder patch.  If you have an inner artist just waiting to get out, put them to work designing our patches.  Your design needs to reflect the last 100 years in Scouting in Southeast Louisiana.  Submit your designs to the Council office by November 1, 2023.  Our Camperall committee will look at all the designs and pick one each to be made into our event patch and our special shoulder patch.
