Once in a decade, the Greater St. Louis Area Council celebrates Scouting by hosting a major Scouting event in Forest park. More than 23,000 people preregistered to attend ScoutFest2020 this October. Staff and volunteers have been working since 2017 to put together a first-class program with over 300 activities. As mentioned earlier, our council has made the health and safety of our Scouts, leaders, staff and their families our number one priority. Therefore, it is with great disappointment we announce the difficult decision to postpone ScoutFest2020 until October 1-3, 2021. By postponing the event, we can follow through on our promise to deliver a spectacular event with once-in-a-lifetime experiences for Scouts and families. All existing registrations will be automatically transferred to the 2021 date. Refunds are available for those who cannot attend the new date by request to firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to celebrating Scouting together in October 2021!
We are happy to announce that the Ranger program, an exciting older scout program that has been enjoyed by scouts for decades, has been revised to be conducted in a socially distant and safe manner. It will take place over the course of three days at various backcountry locations at S bar F Scout Ranch. Scouts will live in outpost camps, carry all equipment necessary for camping, and walk portions of the Three Notch Trail. Scouts who are at least 14, or in their fourth summer camp, will enjoy this small group program. Scouts must be transported to and from camp in private vehicles containing household members only. BSA’s annual health and medical record will be required. We understand that physical exams may be difficult to obtain because of COVID-19. In light of COVID-19, guidance is being provided and will be in effect until August 31, 2020. For more information visit: https://stlbsa.org/ranger-program/
