In the past year New York City Scouting units have shown their resilience and worked hard to maintain Scouting activities with necessary modifications. Packs and Troops have found innovative solutions and held virtual meetings or implemented safety protocols to meet outdoors and at Council camps.
This April, units are encouraged to operate within appropriate safety protocols and consider holding activities outdoors at NYC parks. With Earth Day (April 22nd) and Arbor Day (April 30th) April has many excellent opportunities for Packs, Troops, and Crews, to Spring Back to Scouting. Resuming outdoor activities may be daunting or difficult members and volunteers- units are encouraged to collaborate and work together beginning April 17th, units may consider holding combined outdoor activities or attending some of the events listed below- please be sure to follow the links for more information.
