  1. Class A! Scouts and Leaders should be in Class A uniform, tucked in and looking sharp. The kids love the uniform so grab that hat, neckerchief and button-up.
  2. Dress appropriately. Layer up if cold or rainy. Wear boots if muddy. Hats/Gloves if cold.
  3. Six Essentials. Each Scout (and Parent) must pack the Six Cub Scout Essentials (Google it before you email me please)
  4. Masks are 100% mandatory…masks must cover your mouth and nose.

Our access to the Town Forest is enabled by our commitment to wearing masks, social distancing, being smart and keep everyone safe. We have to get approved by the Board of Health to use the forest this year. As such, please be considerate of our rules, group size requirements and our Town’s rules. Safety and health – number one priority especially right now.
