Resources for Scouting During Coronavirus

Posted on Mar 29 2020 - 11:27pm

NCAC has been working to identify and encourage opportunities for Scouts to continue meeting with their units virtually, learn new skills, earn merit badges and advancements, and - most importantly - to do their part in giving back to their communities.

Reminder: Scouting activities are suspended through April 30

Dear Troop 301 families,

As with many organizations, Troop 301 has been monitoring the spread of COVID-19. Yesterday, the National Capital Area Council of the Boys Scouts of America announced that all Council and District Scouting events (including this weekend's CAT-40 Hike) are postponed or canceled through April 30. Troop 301's Chartering Organization Representative, Committee Chair, and Scoutmaster met yesterday and decided to follow suit at the unit level. (Since then, the parish has also suspended all Scouting organization events through the month.) 

Virtual First Aid Merit Badge Class

Posted on Mar 22 2020 - 10:43pm

For those who need the First Aid merit badge, we are conducting classes via Google Classroom. We probably won't be able to do all the requirements virtually, but I think we can get through a fair bit. If you're interested, sign up here.

To help other people at all times...

It looks like COVID-19 will disrupt our daily routines for the near future. I'm confident we will recover, and fortunately we're part of a movement the motto of which is "be prepared." Now is a great opportunity to put your training to use. 

Last call for the CAT-40
