New payment structure.

Posted on Jun 2 2020 - 8:57pm

Beginning on August 1, 2020, the start of our new program year, every family will pay their children’s annual program fee online, rather than asking unit volunteers to collect and submit these fees. This fee is inclusive of the next increase in national registration fees to $66, the newly announced $25 new member joining fee, and we anticipate that we will be able to shelter our families from the increases that are planned for 2021 and 2022. This fee will also more closely reflect the full cost of Scouting in Northern Star Council, thus eliminating Family Friends of Scouting group solicitations.

This new approach: 

June Overnighter 2020 - Update

Posted on Jun 2 2020 - 8:27pm
A note regarding our upcoming June overnighter.
Washington County has closed campground access until after our scheduled Campout. We will be taking the June overnighter virtual on the scheduled weekend.
 
Agenda for Saturday, June 13 coming very soon.
Here are some thoughts you can do for participation including rank requirements:
 

Options for camping.

  1. Camping in the backyard with the ability to cook outside (fire, grill)
  2. Camping in the backyard with no ability to cook outside, use your kitchen.
  3. Camping indoors with either ability to cook outside or inside.
    1. Set up your tent in your living room, family room, or available room.

                   i.      No tent? Couch cushion tent/fort!

  1. No fireplace for a campfire? Use a virtual fire:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iz7wtTO7roQ
  2. Smores indoors! (Have adults help with removing hot pans from the stove)

           i.      Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

           ii.      Lay 1/2 of the graham crackers on a cookie sheet. Top with chocolate pieces to cover. Use kitchen scissors to snip the marshmallows in 1/2 horizontally if using miniature crackers and place 1/2 a marshmallow on top of each graham cracker. If using regular size crackers use a whole marshmallow.

           iii.      Bake until the marshmallows are puffed and golden brown, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with the remaining graham crackers, pressing down slightly to make a sandwich. Serve immediately, while still warm.

 

Here are adventures that can be worked on during this event:
