    Summer Camp 

    At this time, Summer camp is still in the works. The absolute last date to submit a deposit or intention of your Scout attending is Friday, May 1. The deposit is $50.

    After all deposits are made, I will post the Merit Badge choices for Summer Camp.

    National is still working on Part C, the physical/doctor’s signature needed for summer camp. They understand that many doctors are not seeing patients for physicals and are working on a solution.

    Update from National on Camping 

    I added a PDF on High Adventure Base.

    One of the things addressed is Part C for the Annual medical forms. I am watching for updates as we get closer to May 1.

    BSA Annual Health and Medical Record We are evaluating all options while being mindful of those who have valid exams as well as those new members and adults who may have never completed a Part C exam, state and local authority requirements, and the special review required by high adventure programs. In the interim, we recommend that council heath supervisors, camp staff and volunteers begin a conversation on local availability of well exams and alternatives that could be put in place.

    Virtual Troop Meetings! 

    I found out that I have Google Hangout Meets via my work. We would like to start having virtual Troop Meetings. Now, here is the hard part. We need to get the meeting out to the Scouts in a secure way.
    I have posted the link in the Troop Google Classroom. The code is atwgebg If you let your Scouts know the code, they know how to join a class.

    National Update 

    National has published new Scouting guidelines for Rank Advancement. These are temporary until we are able to have meetings in person. I will be posting the rank requirements for Second Class and First Class in the Google Classroom. https://www.scouting.org/coronavirus/covid-19-faq/?fbclid=IwAR3j-Og4_AjtC7Pn5AzRcLh2ZfwcesuYJzSpTKeZx68Hw_gpUrEEaXGkWX0

    Unfortunately, we are in limbo at this time. There are still things that Scouts can do at home for advancement and Merit Badges.  
    This is a good time for Scouts to learn the Outdoor Code, Oath and Law if they already don’t know them. 

    While we don’t have access to the Troop Library, if a Scout needs a Merit Badge book, let me know. Scouts can look at their books and work on rank requirements. Parents CAN NOT sign off on requirements. If there are any questions, please let me know. 

    This is my source for the Merit Badge Worksheets – http://usscouts.org/mb/worksheets/list.asp

    I do need to know who is going to Summer Camp at Kia Kima in Arkansas. If you have not given me a deposit, please talk to your Scout. I get that some of the Scouts do not like the canvas tents. I do not want that to hold any Scout back from attending. We will make sure that there are Troop tents with us. 

    I am attempting to get Scoutbook functioning for our Troop. If you have an account at my.scouting.org, please let me know. If you don’t have one, please create one. 

    Again, I did create a Google Classroom for the Troop. The code is atwgebg I am working on instructions for two neckerchief slides using paracord and will post in the Classroom when done.
