Summer Camp 2020, July 5 -11

Posted on May 18 2020 - 1:48pm

The summer camp we planned to attend has cancelled all sessions.  We are exploring other options but would like to hear from you about whether or not there is still sufficient interest in going to summer camp in July.  Many BSA camps have cancelled but San Isabel in Colorado is still planning to hold their camp sessions and have availability the week we planned to go, July 5-11.  We are currently reviewing their protocol which is attached for your review and consideration.  

We welcome you to take a look at San Isabel Scout Ranch, read the camp guidelines with your scout and let us know if you'd be interested in and comfortable sending him to camp there.  Please complete this short survey here to help us assess interest and concerns.  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/X6XJN3J

Based on the feedback we receive we will communicate our plans and next steps.  

Thank you!

Scout Meetings for the month of May cancelled

Posted on May 2 2020 - 2:32pm

To all Scouts,

 

The safety and security of our Scouting Families has always been a top priority of our troop.  With guidance from local health officials, our charter organization and Scouting BSA, we are canceling all May meetings and activities.  Our first opportunity for a normal scout meeting at White's Chapel will be after summer. Patrols may have meetings at someones house as long as CDC guidelines are met for social distancing. 

Scouts working on Merit Badges can pickup and drop off Blue Cards at Mr. Stages house using the exchange box by his front door.

 

Yours in Scouting,

Michael Sidener

Guidance for Scout Events

Dear Longhorn Council Scouting Family,

The Longhorn Council cares deeply about the health and safety of all our Scouts and every member of their families. Based on guidance from our public health leaders, the Council is updating our calendars and recommendations to units.

Through the end of April all district and council events and camporees, trainings, meetings and weekend camping are cancelled or postponed, with the exception of meetings that can be conducted electronically by conference call or online meeting or other means following accepted public health guidelines.

Also, through April 30, units should postpone or cancel all in-person meetings that will not follow the CDC guidelines for social distancing or cannot be held remotely using technology. While this public health measure presents challenges, Scouting can continue. Advancement can still happen. Small den or patrol meetings might be possible (in person or via remote communication). We all have to be creative.

Please know that Scouting does not need to stop during this time. Encourage your Scouts to work on their advancements at home or virtually with their merit badge counselor. Leaders may go online and take a training course. Find a way to conduct a virtual Roundtable.

Merit Badge counselor information

Posted on Jun 7 2019 - 11:09pm

We made a large number of Merit Badge counselor updates. I encourage all Scouts to click on the Merit Badge Resources link to review the current Merit Badge Counselor list in order to determine the current counselor for your area of interest.

Parents we are always looking for volunteers. We would love to add you to the list of Merit Badge Counselors if your vocation or hobby matches a Merit Badge. Our biggest needs are Camping, Hiking, Environmental Science, Orienteering, and then any Merit Badge for which we have either one or no counselors.

Please contact me if you have any questions regarding the Merit Badge counselor updates. (click on "read more" to see name and email FF )
