The moment we have all been waiting for is almost here – the Reopening of In-person Scouting Meetings and Activities!!!

We anticipate that the Western New York Region will enter Phase #4 of the State’s Reopening Plan early next week (as of now the target date is Tuesday, June 30). Once Phase #4 starts our local Scouting units can begin to resume activities and meetings. This is great news and we are very excited about it!

In preparation for the resumption of activities, the Council Risk Management Committee has been working for the last several weeks with state and local health officials, safety professionals, and the medical community to develop detailed Guidance on the Reopening of In-person Scouting Meetings and Activities (please see the document attached). This resource is intended to help units plan for and hold safe meetings and activities in the current environment.

Like many things today, there are some activities that units can begin right away, while others will come in the future. In that vein, we continue to work with our local health departments to develop a plan to reopen our camp properties for day use and limited overnight camping. We are optimistic that we will be able to open the properties up very soon and will let you know once they are available and what new health and safety protocols are in place. Please be patient with us, as we are doing our best to open up activities as soon as we can but, we must do so in a legal and safe manner.

Additionally, the Council has developed a Infographic (attached) to help you decide if an event or activity you are thinking of doing is approved at this time. This document includes links to several other documents and websites such as the CDC and New York State Department of Health that provide additional guidance and information.

Please review this information with all of your leaders, parents, and Scouts BEFORE resuming any in-person meetings and activities and use it for your planning efforts. It will help us ensure the safety of our Scouts, leaders, Scouting families, and the entire community.

On behalf of the entire Greater Niagara Frontier Council, thank you for everything you have done to keep on Scouting during the unprecedented times we have faced this year. The determination, resourcefulness, service, and sense of adventure you have all shown during the COVID-19 pandemic has been awe-inspiring. I look forward to seeing you in-person at Scouting meetings throughout the Council very soon!

Announcing the 2020 Virtual Interfaith Week hosted by the National Religious Relationships Committee of the Boy Scouts of America.

June 29th-July 5th via Zoom and this page.

Classes: We have over 60 class sessions, social media challenges, a family trivia night, and more scheduled for the week. Participate in the items that are of interest to you by registering for a ticket to just those classes.
Informational Packet: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1e-osy-Ftw8a0-FosYEFAxpOtNrFiWPtM/view?usp=sharing

Registration: Please register once as a family unit for all the classes you want to take. Since we are using Zoom, we need to know how many devices are going to join each class session. Example: Johnny and Julie are doing the same class at lunch time, but won't share a device, equals two registrations for that class. If they will share a device, we only need one registration.

Registration Link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2020-virtual-interfaith-week-tickets-107549782294

Pass this on to your councils, units, and friends. Looking forward to "seeing you there".

Hey everyone- hope you are well. One of my roles in Scouts BSA is Northeast Region Area 3 Fishing Lead. I want to let you all know that fishing could be a great way to escape these current events we are enduring. NYS DEC online offers a way to get your NYS Fishing License on their site, and you can print it out at home! No personal contact needed! A residential Fishing License is $25.00 and good for 1 year from the date you get it. Those of you in my fishing merit badge class all know - when you turn 16 years old, you need a license. Anyone younger fishes for free. Or if you are rural and own property with a pond or lake- you fish free no matter what age. April 1st opens up trout season. We have a lot of great fisheries in Western New York that give plenty of room to be away from others and fish. Take your Scout out for a day, and enjoy some family time. Monitor what is happening and be sure it’s ok. Every good tackle box includes hand sanitizer and biodegradable soap!
Stay safe- Good Scouting - Good Fishing!

FISH ON!!
