An update on the New Merit Badge, date change for Eagle Rank requirements postponed

Posted by rhertel on Jan 10 2021 - 2:28am

As noted in an earlier announcement, it was stated that the new Diversity, Equity and Inclusion merit badge would become available January 1 and required for any Eagle advancement after May of this year. Per an announcement first made on the Commissioners Facebook page and now confirmed on Scouting.org, the release of the content and the change in Eagle Rank requirements is being delayed pending further review. The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion merit badge was announced as a program change in July of 2020, with the expected content to be released in January of 2021. Comments from the Scouting membership have caused the committee to review the goals and content of the program, and no new date has been set either for the content release or the requirements change to the Eagle Rank. At this time the BSA has advised they will give "adequate time" to earn the badge. If you are approaching your Eagle Rank, please make sure you pay attention to this change and any news on the topic.

Winter Camping Awareness Training - offered by GGAC and the OA Lodge

Posted by rhertel on Dec 21 2020 - 6:50pm

This is training operated by GGAC to prepare Scouts and adults for Winter Camping conditions. This is not a T153 event, but Scouts and others interested in the subject are recommended to attend. This session would prepare someone for camping at events such as Klondike Derby as well as smaller family camp settings and is also valuable for other cold weather camping and outing situations.  Training is suitable for Scouts, Scout leaders, and parents of Scouts interested in joining outings or learning what their Scouts are learning to help them prepare, and is highly recommended for anyone planning on camping in cold weather conditions.
