August 1st is World Scout Scarf Day

Every year, to commemorate the first ever Boy Scout Camp held in 1907 by Lord Baden-Powell on Brownsea Island. Scouts and Scouters around the world, both active and former, observe World Scout Scarf Day, with the motto “once a scout…always a scout”.  World Scout Scarf Day is a day to show the history as well as the commonality of scouting programs around the world.  The Neckerchief, as it is referred to in Scouts BSA, is worn by scouting organizations around the world, so show your scout spirit by wearing yours for the day, to your religious services, as part of a scout outing, or just for fun!  Patches are available for order at $5.00 each, and more information can be found at

Unit Meetings – Safety First!

As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Muskingum Valley Council is putting safety first in all decision-making regarding programming at the Council, District and Unit level.
Now that many of the Covid -19 related restrictions are lifting, units are now able to begin meeting again in-person provided they have the approval of their Charter Organization and follow the following guidelines:

Units are permitted to hold in-person meetings with 10 or fewer members in a group setting.

Multiple groups of 10 may meet at the same time in the same location, but each group of 10 should remain independent of one another and the groups should not intermingle adults or youth members within those groups.

Units must receive approval from their chartering organization to begin meeting.

Proper Social Distancing should be practiced by all those in attendance at meetings. At least a 6-foot distance between all individuals who are not immediate family members.

Leaders and Scouts should wear face coverings any time they are unable to maintain social distancing.

Proper sanitizing measures (hand sanitizer, surface cleaner, soap and water) and handwashing should be available and encouraged.

Prior to attending any in-person meetings, parents should self-screen themselves and their Scouts:

  • Temperatures should be taken. If a temperature screening is 100 degrees or more, you should not attend any Scouting function.
  • If you, or anyone in your family has been exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 within two weeks of your meeting, you should not attend any Scouting functions.

And remember – all Youth Protection policies and two-deep leadership policies should be followed to ensure the continued safety of our youth members.
