Scouting in Connecticut

Pre- Event Medical Screening

Preparing for a campout or other event takes a lot of planning. One way to make sure everyone has fun and stays healthy while participating is to use the Pre-Event Medical Screening Checklist before getting in those vehicles. Helping to prevent the spread of communicable diseases should be included as part of your preparation.



First weekends already went.  We still have some for the end of September.  We are planning on some great fall and winter programs for Scouts in all programs and at all levels.  Take a sneak peak and save the dates for our fall program schedule.
