Coronovirus (COVID-19) Updates

 

March 20, 2020

 

Dear Scouting Families,

As we all deal with the challenges that the current pandemic is causing, we wanted to share some Scouting updates with you.

-Over the next month, our camps will be closed.  Should you have a reservation for a cabin or training center, someone from the council office will be contacting you.

-For the safety of all, the council office is currently closed to the public.  If you have something to drop off or pick up, give your district executive or the office a call.  We will have a bin outside of the office door to exchange materials.  Please know, we are all working and if you need something, we will do whatever we can to help you. 

-Some of you have asked about the status of events to take place later this spring.  As we all know, information has been changing rapidly and we will continue to make decisions based on guidance from local government and health officials.  At this point we can tell you that Council Recognition Banquet for the end of April is postponed.  The committee is currently working on another date.  Also, Fly First Class and Outdoor Wilderness Training are looking to be rescheduled later in the year.  

-Lastly, we would ask that if you and your unit are making Scouting “happen” through technology or other means, please email Felicia Cates.  She is compiling ideas and best practices and will be featuring them on our council Facebook page.  By continuing to offer Scouting by alternative methods, it allows our Scouts to have some normalcy during this difficult period and we encourage you to do what you can.

Obviously, we ask everyone to be safe and practice social distancing but let’s also remember that one of Scouting’s trademarks is to help others.  If there are opportunities to safely do so, don’t forget about those in need.

Thank you for all you do in Scouting.  We will do our best to communicate any updates via our website and our Facebook page.

Matt Klutzaritz
Scout Executive
