Welcome from the Booshway!  

Although I’ve only been involved with the KS-MO Fur Company Rendezvous for a few years, I’ve been involved in scouting in both Southeast Kansas and Southwest Missouri off-and-on for over 45 years both as a youth and an adult. In my opinion, the Rendezvous is one of the best events held in the council every year. The variety of activities and Mountain Man theme is a great way for Scouts, young and old, to interact and the open, non-competitive nature of the events provides a friendly, relaxed atmosphere for the boys (and adults) to start new friendships and rekindle old. We already have a lot of great activities and demonstrations planned but suggestions are welcome at any time by using the Contact button at the top of the page.
