News You Can Use:

  • ON TUESDAY JUNE 9TH, We will be having our last scheduled meeting for the year at Memorial Field in town. This is the one behind Town Hall.  The meeting will be from 7-8:30 & Class B. Bring frisbees, footballs, and any other outdoor game. Please have your Scout bring his handbook and any blue cards. This will be an opportunity for your Scout to get any sign off’s in his book from the last three months.
  • Summer camp has been canceled. There is an opportunity for remote camping. Camp Phoenix is for members of Scouts BSA to participate in right from their backyard. This camp is a new, exciting opportunity for our Scouts. It brings some of the best elements from camp in this time of physical distancing. Scouts will be able to earn up to five merit badges, participate in Firebird Challenges that get them outdoors and active as well as join in campfires and shows via live production.  f you have questions on our remote camps, please email phoenix@ctyankee.org
