Oak Tree Scouters:
I will be working with you as the professional Scouter in Oak Tree District. We are all in “standby mode” due to the Corona Virus at the moment though. Hopefully for not much longer.
The picture reminds me that the older boy represents our accomplishments of the past as I think he earned all of those Merit Badges while the younger looks excited about seeing all of those opportunities. And opportunities we have.
Presently, please keep in touch with all of your members and families. Many units are now having online meetings to replace weekly meetings and encourage youth to work at home on advancements. And make sure everyone in your unit knows about Scouts at Home on our website. There are Facebook Live events featuring fun and learning while youth can work on Merit Badges through our Zoom capabilities. If your leadership needs more information on how to use Zoom technology information is featured there also.
Soon our opportunities include restarting Camp Card sales, recruiting youth, and preparing everyone for camp.
And speaking of camps, there is a Cub Day Camp scheduled for Boerne and we are bringing back a Cub Day Camp to Kerrville.
Until we can meet in person please contact me at 210-296-7617 or terry.ellis@Scouting.org.
Thanks and I look forward to meeting you.
