  • Leaders, be in contact with your Charter Partner as restrictions maybe in place regarding the facility you partner with. 
     
  • Unit Committee's and Unit Leaders, continue to evaluate upcoming schedules and plan accordingly by referencing the guidelines through your local and state authorities.  Use the above helpful documents.   
     
  • As always, participation in Scouting activities is up to the discretion of parents and guardians and unit leaders. For the protection of the community, please follow State Department of Health and CDC guidance to ensure Scouts and adults stay home when sick and do not attend Scouting or other activities.
     
  • If you have a fever, cough, or other symptoms associated with COVID-19, or if you believe you may have been exposed to COVID-19, you should isolate and not attend any Scouting events.  People who think they may have been exposed to COVID-19 should contact their healthcare provider immediately. 

2.  Minsi Trails Council Service Center & Scout Shop 

Updated on 6/30/2021

  • The Council Service Center & Scout Shop will not require masks for FULLY VACCINATED visitors. The CDC defines fully vaccinated as 2 weeks after last (second) vaccine dose.

We appreciate the shared sacrifices we have all had to make during the past 15 months.  We appreciate the support and care everyone has shown for one another during this difficult time. 

  • If you are unable to visit, we are happy to help.  Feel free to contact our front help desk at (610) 264-8551.
