Safety Moment: Emergency Action Plan
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.
If you missed our in-person or our virtual kickoffs have no fear we recorded our third session and uploaded it to our Youtbube page. Check it out in the video below.
Recruiting season is here! Our volunteers have done a masterful job of designing flyers for our units to use. We can help print these and all types of flyers for you and your unit. Just give us a 3-4 days to turn them around for you. The custome created flyers can be viewed in the google drive below by clicking the button below.
Also returning this year are the recruiting tools. We have added resources to our recruiting tools page. We have added more inflatable gaga pits, Rain Gutter Regattas, and Lego Pinewood Derby. Almost all of the recruiting tools are free of charge. We just require a fully refundable deposit on most items. Only the rental of the Vortex recruiting bus and the program trailer have a nominal gas charge to rent. Check out the recruiting tools by clicking the button below.
With the success of the short-term camping program at Camp Workcoeman over the past two summers, we are excited to announce we will be renewing the program in 2023. We saw over 400 Scouts come through the programs at Workcoeman this summer. From SCUBA to merit badges from Day Camp to family camping we have A LA Carte program for Scouts at all levels.
Announcingnew programs for the summer of 2023. Camp Workcoeman in coordination with the Council training committee will be offering leadership development courses for both youth and adults! Workcoeman will be offering Wilderness First Aid training in June of 2023 and much more in the summer of 2023. Stay tuned!
