Scouting in Connecticut

In this edition there is the Hartford Athletic Scout Seminar, Virtual PWD, Camp Kinda-Like-A,  Jamboree Video that the Summit did for us, Council COVID-19 update, National Recruitment Webinar for Cub Leaders for tonight, BSA Safety Moment, & more! 

BSA Safety Moment

Many of us have had practice or training when it comes to deciding the best methods in dealing with an emergency. Far too often when those fight-or-flight situations arise, it’s difficult for us to recall everything we need to know. Luckily, there are written procedures with maps and guides on how to effectively address emergency situations, assuming they have been prepared and reviewed in advance at your office/event location.


Come join us this Wednesday at 6pm for a Scout exclusive seminar with the Coach of the Hartford Athletics. Coach Radhi Jaïdi will talk to our Scouts via zoom. Please sign up to be part of the Zoom interview where live questions can be asked. This is an unique opportunity to chat to an inspirational person who has done a lot of cool things in his life. Including playing for his country in the World Cup and playing professional soccer all over the world. This is open to all Scouts! Cost is $0 and for more information and for registration is in the button below.
