HELLO EVERYONE! I hope this finds all of you and your families well!
ONLINE CLASSES – Remember, your scouts, boys or girls, can watch Scout rank advancement videos at your convenience and learn and practice skills for advancement. The link to these videos is : Advancement.
When they are ready to have it signed off, here is the procedure:
For boys – email Jim Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org. He will contact you to schedule a video conference with you and your scout. For youth protection purposes, a parent must be present (at least within earshot) while this call is taking place for Youth Protection purposes. Once the scout has demonstrated the skill to Jim’s satisfaction he will track the completed skill for updating in the book at a later date.
For girls: email Jen Walter at email@example.com OR Julie Tylman at firstname.lastname@example.org

Let me or any of your leadership know if you have any trouble, or have any questions or concerns!
PERSONAL FITNESS – Next Tuesday, May 19, at 7 PM, is our second Personal Fitness Class time via Zoom. Link/Details will be posted that afternoon. Be prepared to discuss the homework. We will do the classwork via Zoom again, and the physical part of it later in the spring/summer, or each scout can do it on their own with a parent.
SUMMER CAMP – As far as we know, camp is still on. I am being told that they are updating the camp to include masks, hand washing and sanitizing stations, all new medical equipment and meals will be made at campsites instead of the dining hall. You should plan to bring 1-2 face coverings with you. (more details on this later)
Remember: AS FAR AS I KNOW, your scout still needs to have a physical done before camp. Here is a link to the forms. I need all three parts filled out and the front and back of an insurance card.
If they cancel camp, you will be refunded the full price. If, after payment, you personally decide sending them to camp is not right for your family, the initial information that I have (which is not 100% certain yet) is that a full refund would be given, minus about $40.
If you have paid in full, you should have received an email from me with the credentials to sign up for classes. If not, please notify me immediately. There are a few of you who made deposits, but have to complete payment soon. I will contact you with your balance. PLease let me know immediately, and please pay in full as soon as possible if you still intend to send your son to camp. We need to make our final payment soon.
Also, if you family has struggled during this time and needs financial assistance to finish a camp payment, please let me know. There is NO JUDGMENT; the troop will do what we can do help your scout get to camp.
