Dear Scout Leaders and Parents:
With the recent improvements in COVID-19 rates in our council territory, Three Harbors Council is updating guidance regarding unit meetings. All in-person Scout meetings and activities must be conducted within the guidelines of local health departments and following the BSA’s Safe Restart Checklist. Decisions regarding in-person meetings and activities should be approved by the unit’s charter organization.
All attendees at indoor Scout meetings are required to wear face coverings, follow social distancing guidelines, and complete a COVID-19 Pre-Event Medical Checklist. Unit leaders should make hand sanitizer available and encourage frequent handwashing. Scout leaders should continue to use virtual meeting formats and outdoor settings whenever possible and particularly for large gatherings such as pack meetings, Blue & Gold banquets, and Court of Honors.
Does your unit or den need an indoor location for its meeting? Effective March 1st, the dining halls at Camp Oh-Da-Ko-Ta and Camp IMR are available to host unit meetings with reduced capacity. Also, the Milwaukee Scout Service Center’s PieperPower Learning Center will be available for groups of 40 or less. To reserve a meeting space, please contact Katie Schneider at Katie.Schneider@Scouting.org or 414-443-2842. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, food service and drinks are not allowed inside the camp dining halls or PieperPower Learning Center at this time.
District and Council meetings should continue to be conducted virtually until further notice. These groups may hold outdoor meetings and activities if approved in advance by the COVID-19 Scouting Task Force. Please contact the Task Force via Wally Smith, Director of Camping Services, at Wally.Smith@Scouting.org.
Please visit www.threeharborsscouting.org for upcoming activities at our Scout camps as well as virtual advancement opportunities. Cub Scouts are invited to attend Online Adventure Clinics and Scouts BSA members are encouraged to check out the online merit badge clinics listed here.
Thank you for all you are doing for our Scouts.
Scout on, Safely!
