The Connecticut Rivers Council is responding to concerns related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We are following the recommendations of both national and state Departments of Health, and local Healthcare officials, and we are doing our part in trying to limit the spread of the virus. Below is our latest guidance.
Please follow the guidelines from the Council’s Enterprise Risk Management Committee:
Remember all aspects of youth protection.
Follow the protocols of the school district to which the chartered partner resides.
If there is an exposure to Covid at a Scouting function, please report the exposure on RiskConnect. That report will trigger the appropriate response to your situation from the BSA and governmental agencies.
March 19th: Cub Scout Adventure Day. We are offering discounted general admission, with advance registration. All adventure programs are a la carte and can be added to admission. All adventures are 90 minutes in length and will help scouts meet some of the requirements to earn the adventure.
On Friday, March 18th we are holding an overnight at the Aquarium. Leaders can register their groups to sleep over. We will have dinner, a movie in the new theatre, a sleepover, behind-the-scenes tour, and a craft activity. In the morning there will be breakfast, a seal training demonstration, and a scavenger hunt.
