New Scout Bootcamp
Starting June 17th at 7pm, Jersey Shore Council will be hosting a weekly online program “New Scout Bootcamp” open to any ScoutsBSA Youth in a Troop who want to advance and learn rank requirement skills while stuck inside.
This is a free program offered by Assistant Scoutmaster Carson Lee of Troop 58 from Hammonton, NJ who will be running the meetings along with guest speakers and providing digital materials to the Scouts.
This program is not intended to replace any online Troop meetings, and only a Scout’s own Troop leaders may still sign off rank requirements. After they’ve learned the material from the online class, It’s still the Scouts’ responsibility to demonstrate their knowledge and completion of requirements to their to their respective Troop leaders.
We ask that you pass this information along to your Scouts and their parents so they can sign up on the Jersey Shore Council website.
