In this holiday season, we are all excited to celebrate safely. Below is a statement by the Alameda County Health Department, outlining recommendations to celebrate safely.
Use the following three resources to safely plan a Scouting activity for your unit. Each member, volunteer, and family must evaluate their unique circumstances and make an informed decision before attending in-person activities.
The safety of Piedmont youth is of utmost importance and we commit to offering our programs that are consistent with county health requirements. In-person cohorts and virtual activities are available across our various programs. We aim to bring the benefits of Scouting to as many youth as possible during this time – girls and boys – shaping character through outdoor adventure and ethics, values-based leadership, and citizenship and service, consistent with the Scout Oath and Law. Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA and our numerous coed programs, including Venturing Crews, Sea Scouts, Police Explorers and Learning for Life, provide these opportunities. As one of Piedmont’s leading youth-serving organizations, our influence is wide and deep.
