Cub Scout Camps – 2020
Cub Scout camp will be very different in 2020. North Star Units should look at the image of the flyer and start planning for the 2020 summer. Will your Unit go on multiple weeks so parents can attend different camps? Will you divide and have dens go the week that works best for them?
More information is expected soon. This is just a heads up on things to come 🙂

BSA has provided guidance for marketing Family Scouting. In some part it is simply a reminder to follow the Scout Law in marketing with concrete examples of violations of the Scout Law in this context.
Even so, it gives a checklist of “don’ts.”
Make sure you review this against your unit websites and emails.
