Pack 1 pandemic-safe meeting plan for 2020-21

While Pack 1's dens cannot meet weekly in the classrooms at the church, as we have in years past, Den leaders will hold outdoor meetings in area parks (while the weather remains warm enough) for Scouts/parents comfortable being in small-group, socially-distanced outdoor settings. For Scouts/parents more comfortable with online connections, leaders can arrange online Zoom-type meetings and/or communicate directly with parents about using Scoutbook for a more home-led advancement track.


As fall weather grows colder and we run out of evening daylight, Den leaders, based on Scout/parent feedback, are prepared to switch to Sunday late-afternoon outdoor meetings and/or online Zoom-type meetings to continue enjoying fun activities that will meet advancement requirements. In outdoor meetings, we will, naturally, prioritize advancement activities that require being outdoors to undertake. In online meetings in the colder months, we will focus on advancement activities that can be either: enjoyed indoors in a video-meeting setting; completed individually, with parent oversight.


Pack meetings will be suspended for the time being. Pack 1 leaders are still brainstorming ways we can celebrate advancement and share the joys of Scouting as a larger group. Most likely we will use the coming-soon new Pack website and video. For more information, feel free to email a query to pack1mn@gmail.com
