Jersey Devil District

The Jersey Devil District serves the following towns: Barnegat, Beachwood, Berkeley, Bass River, Lacey, Lakehurst, Little Egg Harbor, Manahawkin, Manchester, New Egypt, New Gretna, Ocean Gate, Pine Beach, Seaside Heights, South Toms River, Tuckerton, Waretown, West Creek, and Whiting.

Please make every effort to have at least one representative from your unit log in to the meeting. There will be a lot of information shared that evening, so please make every effort to participate. 

The roundtable meets once a month on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. The district roundtable  is a meeting to provide the following for the full family of Scouting units:

  •          Skills, techniques, information, program ideas—the know-how that makes for successful unit operation.
  •          To provide unit leadership with the will to do—the morale, enthusiasm, inspiration, and vision that periodically renew the desire to serve youth.

The district committee meets the third Monday of the month (except during global pandemics - we are now meeting via Zoom).  The district committee is a group of volunteers that serves the local units within the district. The committee is broken into several sub committees which include advancement, training, activities, unit service, membership, camping, and fundraising. The district is always looking for help in any of these areas and has roles that can fit anyone's schedule and skill set.  Contact Sharon McKenna if you are interested in helping out youth on the district level!

Currently, we are focusing on recruiting a MEMBERSHIP CHAIR. If you know of anyone or are that someone who is interested in learning more about the MEMBERSHIP CHAIR position, an excellent networking opportunity, please contact Sharon McKenna at 609-548-8730. Sharon promises that you are under no obligation when calling for information. A Scout is trustworthy.

The commissioner staff meets once a month and focus on the following four primary areas:

  • Supporting unit growth in the Journey to Excellence criteria
  • Linking district committee resources to the unit
  • Visiting units and logging the visits into the Unit Visit Tracking System (UVTS)
  • Supporting on-time charter renewal

A commissioner plays several roles, including friend, representative, unit "doctor," teacher, and counselor.

The commissioner is a friend of the unit. Of all their roles, this one is the most important. It springs from the attitude, "I care, I am here to help, what can I do for you?"

The commissioner is a representative. The commissioner helps represent the ideals, the principles, and the policies of the Scouting movement.

The commissioner is a unit "doctor." In their role as "doctor," they try to see that their units make good "health practices" a way of life. When problems arise, they act quickly.

The commissioner is a teacher. As a commissioner, they will have a wonderful opportunity to participate in the growth of unit leaders by sharing knowledge with them.

The commissioner is a counselor. As a Scouting counselor, they will help units solve their own problems. Everyone needs counseling from time to time, even experienced leaders.

If you are interested in volunteering as a commissioner, please contact Duane Hunt.

District Commissioner Duane Hunt will be hosting a Zoom meeting for the Commissioners on Tuesday November 10 at 6:30 PM.  Even though we can't get together in person, we need to go over a few items going forward for the Fall.  The biggest two concerns are the visitations and the upcoming Charter process.  The invitation is below.
