Note: The original RSVP email was not working. A new email has been added below. The Scouts from Troop 575 would like to invite Webelo Scouts of the Northern Trails District to a Scout Skills Day, Saturday, November 7th, from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm at Tolt MacDonald County Park near Carnation (31020 NE 40th St, Carnation, WA 98014). Scouts should dress for the weather as we will be outside the entire day. We plan to have a LOT of fun!
You should bring the following:
- 2 Masks
- Medical Forms
- Full water bottle
- Whittling Chip
- Pocket Knife
- Mess Kit (camping plate, bowl, knife, fork, spoon)
Troop 575 Scouts will introduce Webelos to many of the cool skills Scouts learn as a Scouting BSA Scout. Both boys and girls working on their Arrow of Light are invited!
Scouts attending will try out many skills while also working together as a patrol to fix a hot lunch. Parents are welcome to stay (with masks) and talk with adult leaders from the Troop who can answer your questions about Scouting BSA and Troop 575.
Some of the skills Webelos will experience include:
- Knots - Help put up a shelter
- Knife and Ax Safety - Chopping and cutting wood to start a fire
- Fire Safety and Starting - Building and starting a small fire
- Nature - Learn about plants and animals in our area
- First Aid - Learning and practicing first aid skills
- Personal Fitness - Getting active
- Navigation - Going through the orienteering course
Each patrol will have completely separate activities to keep group sizes small. All Scouts and adults will wear masks during the event and observe social distancing guidelines. All Scouts and adults will have their temperatures check and medical forms will be needed for all visiting Scouts. If any participant has any signs of a contagious illness, they are asked not to participate. Any participant who has come in contact with anyone who has or may have COVID-19 should not attend.
Please RSVP to email@example.com by October 30th with the number of Scouts attending and any food requirements or special health needs.
We look forward to meeting you and sharing in Scout Spirit!
