To the New Birth of Birth of Freedom Council Scouting Family:

First and foremost, we hope this message finds you and your family well.  All of us are living through an unprecedented and concerning time.  As the COVID-19 pandemic has unfolded, we have been continuously monitoring the situation, gathering as much information as possible to aid in our decision-making process relating to camping opportunities offered by the Council.  In particular, we have been working hard to identify a path that would allow us to hold summer camp programs at Hidden Valley Scout Reservation and Camp Tuckahoe this summer.

The STEM+ Lab will featured interactive classes for students in middle school and high school. Beginning on March 31st, Redbird’s STEM Director Greg Roark will lead students through six virtual classes aimed at engaging their creativity and continuing to foster their interests in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) outside the classroom.

Troop 1998 moving forward with Virtual Troop / Patrol Meetings beginning Monday March 23rd at 7pm

Posted on Mar 22 2020 - 6:48pm

Beginning this Monday March 23rd and until further notice, Troop 1998 is moving forward with hosting all currently scheduled and future troop meetings, thru Zoom. At minimum, this will include all regularly scheduled Monday night meetings where we first meet as a troop and then do patrol break out sessions. We will come back at the end of the meeting for the SPL to make any announcements and Mr. Henderson to do a scout master minute - just like a circle up. In this new virtual world we will also be including other regularly scheduled meetings that are held just once per month to include the ASM Meetings (1st Thursday), PLC meetings (2nd Thursday), Committee Meetings (3rd Thursday), and the Aviation Camporee planning meetings (4th Thursday). Other virtual meetings can and will be scheduled as needed. Hats off to Mr. Freimanis who has graciously volunteered to be in the driver’s seat to get all these virtual meetings set up for us. Log into the troop calendar to get Zoom meeting access codes to participate.
