I HOPE THIS MESSAGE FINDS EVERYONE WELL!
LADIES! WE ARE OFFICIAL! Troop 313-G is now fully approved and functional! My apologies that it took so long! Please pass that information to anyone you know who might be interested!
ONLINE ACTIVITIES – PLEASE GO TO THIS LINK! Scouting has a “National Camp-IN” that WILL count as an official camping night for rank advancement and camping merit badge, as told to me by Karen Meier!
We are a little behind the curve on this, but we are starting to get some activities going. First, Ms Boyle is working on completing the merit badges that she taught at the Whitworth Merit Badge College. She will have 6 sessions set up for both badges to allow flexibility for the participants. Sh is going to open up to the Troop for anyone who wants to work on either of those badges, get things marked off, etc. Here is the link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0E4DA9A922A6F94-merit
We are also discussing having some instructional videos that scouts can WATCH AT THEIR CONVENIENCE. Also, from Karen Meier, the Scout Executive, if you are working with your scout on rank advancement at home, or if they work with a leader remotely, they can mark things complete in Scoutbook, and when we get back together it can be checked off officially in their book, and backdated to the date of completion. Your scout can learn some accountability in this area.
Personal Fitness Merit Badge – I am going to start having Zoom Meetings for the classroom portions of Personal Fitness. The first meeting will be May 12 at 7 PM. A link to the meeting will come through this email system. When we are able to gather, we will begin the physical activity part of the merit badge. In the alternative, if you and your scout are diligent and can take the measurements and do the check-ins every other week, message me, and we can talk about starting sooner. firstname.lastname@example.org
Update on Summer Camp – As far as I am being told, summer camp is still planning to be held. If you are paid in full you should have received an email with information to register for classes. If not let me not right away. If you have made an initial deposit, and want to pay in full, I have been accepting payment via VENMO and ZELLE, but you can also mail it to me. Contact me at email@example.com and I can give you the details. We would like everyone to be paid in full by May 15.
NEED INFO – Also, if this message reaches the parents of the following Scouts, please send me an email. I have some membership questions to ask! Thanks! firstname.lastname@example.org
