A few additional items for the New Scouts. The Virtual Campout starting May 2 is an opportunity to complete selveral of the requirements for Tenderfoot, 2nd Class and 1st Class. To complete these requirements, please Be Prepared to do the following:
Present yourself prepared for the campout (an example of packing list in on Page 268-269 of the Scout Handbook. You do not need all of these itesm, but it is a good place to start.
Set-up your own tent (with help from an adult or sibling). If you do not have an outdoor space, you can set-up your camp in your living room or even your bedroom.
Plan supper and breakfast for yourself (and your family). You may get some help but try to do as much as you can by yourself.
Prepare supper and breakfast for yourself (and your family). You may get some help but try to do as much as you can yourself.
If possible, use a camp stove or outdoor cooking methods to prepare the meals. If you do not have access to those methods, your kitchen will be fine.
For Knife Safety presentation – have your pocket knife.
For the Fire Building presentation – try to gather some sticks or other items that you can use to create a “sample” fire. If you have access to a fire pit or fireplace AND your parents’ permission you can start a fire as part of this. Starting the fire is not necessary to complete the requirement.
Have a song, skit and/or a joke prepared for the campfire.
Finally, for everyone, Scouting BSA is also holding the National Camp-in tomorrow starting at 8:00AM with some really cool sounding activities such as:
STEM time with Steve Wozniak
Movie Making with Hollywood directors.
The schedule has not been released, but you should plan to join if any of the activities are of interest. More at https://www.scouting.org/Campin/
Please direct your questions to Mr. Wilcox and we’ll see you tomorrow!
