Scouting through Quarantine

Even though we are all in this quarantine that doesn’t mean that we have to stop scouting.  Now is when we should more than ever since we all have time. During this whole thing why not work on merit badges, or work on rank requirements. You cam print out at home a merit badge worksheet and fill it out and then bring it to the next scout meeting and find a parent who is an instructor in that merit badge and you can work with them to get it. If you need help, reach out. Reach out to an older scout who has the merit badge. See if there is anything they could help you with. Here is a link where you can find the requirements for every merit badge. Let’s see how many merit badges you can get done!

COVID-19 Meetings

These are tough times right now but scouting continues on. Throughout quarantine we started off having our meetings virtually over Zoom video conference and that was working nicely. Recently we ha e been fortunate enough to be able to go back to in person meetings. They have been small meetings at local parks and precautions have been taken during meetings to ensure the safety of all our scouts. Scouting stops for nothing and you can still be a scout even throughout this whole ordeal.

Scoutmaster’s Conferences and Boards of Review

Scouts who need a Scoutmaster Conference should schedule a time other than a troop meeting to complete one. Chip will be available most evenings (except Monday) at the church. Boards of Review for those scouts will then be held at the following troop meeting. Remember: all scouts having a Board of Review are expected to be in full uniform with their handbook.

Life Scouts working on their Eagle Projects should also schedule times to meet with Chip.

Meeting Announcements 6/17/16

  • The main discussion at this meeting was preparing for summer camp, followed by a game of Ultimate Frisbee.
