Beyond camping, a number of cold-weather activities present challenges to Scouts and leaders, such as alpine or cross-country skiing, ice skating, sledding, ice fishing, and snowshoeing. Essential ingredients for fun include skill training and an awareness of the hazards unique to these activities.
On December 9th, the Scouting with Special Needs Committee is holding a unique and informative virtual event. It's called Supporting Inclusion with Invisible Varying Abilities. It's a free event, but you do need to register. Once you register, the zoom link will be in the confirmation email.
This event will include a panel of professionals helping to answer your questions regarding invisible varying abilities. We will be welcoming a special guest from the New England Assistive Technology (NEAT) Center to provide information on the latest technology available.
Please don’t forget to complete your recharter and submit by November 30th. If you need assistance, please contact your Unit Commissioner, District Commissioner, or District Professional.
