covid updates

A Scout is: Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.

In the interest of keeping the spread of germs to a minimum, Scouts and Scouters will need to provide their own lunches this year. As Scouts from the same troop may be in different locations at lunch, we request that Scouters not attempt to purchase lunches locally and then try to track down their Scouts around the campus. Please send Scouts with a lunch they can take with them when they check in at registration in the morning. In turn, the cost of this MBU has been reduced to $15/$18 per Scou; Scouterss are no charge.

A Scout is:
Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.

NOTES FOR SCOUTMASTERS

  • Scouts and Scouters are expected to be in uniform and abide by the Scout Oath and Law.
  • Scouters are required on a ratio of one per four scouts to help out in the classes, transit areas, and with transportation. If you have fewer than four scouts, one adult is expected to stay.
  • Scouters will be assigned specific duties. Every attempt will be made to keep adults with their units.
  • Scouters are needed to participate as monitors, or in any other needed function, so that this event will be successful (and fun!) for our youth.
  • When sending the registration, please let us know who is driving as well as the type and capacity of the vehicle(s) they are driving so we can match it with transportation requirements for the Scouts.
  • Scouts need to dress appropriately for the weather.
  • Scouts should study the requirements ahead of time. Bring reference materials along with paper and pencil/pen for taking notes. Items completed ahead of time should be brought to MBU or certified by the Scoutmaster ahead of time. Partials will be given for work that is incomplete. If a Scout receives a partial, it is up to the Scoutmaster or Advancement Chair to make sure the Scout finishes all the requirements properly.
  • Scouters will be notified by email when the troop registration has been received and merit badge assignments are complete.
  • In order to participate in this MBU, Scouts must be registered in their troop by 02/01/2023. Please contact us if this presents a hardship for your Scout.
  • Some Scouts require additional direction. As a courtesy to other Scouts, please send an additional Scouter to assist.
