Dear Minsi Trails Council Scouting Family,

Per guidance provided by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the Minsi Trails Council Service Center and Scout Shop, Camp Minsi and Trexler Scout Reservation will be closed to the public beginning on Tuesday, March 17, 2020 until further notice.

Within our council territory, schools are closed, and non-essential businesses have been urged to cease normal operations to help mitigate the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). Minsi Trails Council is taking this action in accordance with local and state authorities as well as the Scout Oath and Law. The safety of our Scouting family is our highest priority.

The council is committed to continuing business operations remotely so we can fulfill our mission. If you have a time-sensitive issue, please contact your local professional via email or call. For the Minsi Trails Council front help desk, please call (610) 264-8551. You may need to leave a message, as this line will be monitored on a limited basis. A full list of contacts is available at Minsitrails.org/staff

If you need to contact the Minsi Trails Scout Shop, please email gail.rauch@scouting.org and/or email Karen Strobino, BSA Supply Group Territory Sales Manager, at karen.strobino@scouting.org.

Many council and district meetings will continue as tele- or videoconferences. Please check the council calendar at Minsitrails.org/event/calendar for details.

Units are strongly encouraged NOT TO hold face to face meetings and have virtual meetings while we practice social distancing. Scouting can play an important role for youth and families during these trying times—the lessons of the Scout Oath and Law are as important now as they have ever been. Visit Minsitrails.org/update.

We're in uncharted waters and aware that this crisis presents many challenges to you and your family. Please be mindful of your physical and mental wellbeing, as well as that of those around you and most vulnerable in our communities. We will get through this together, so please do your part to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

For Scouting related questions, refer to Minsitrails.org/update or CDC.gov for updates and resources.

Yours in Scouting,

Paul Oswald
Chief Operating Officer


 

Camp Update: 

At this present time, Minsi Trails Council is planning on operating our summer camps as scheduled. This is an unprecedented situation and we are aware that you, your families, and your units are presented with many challenges. We will continue to provide any updates as they occur.
