Dear Greenwich Council Scouting Family:

First and foremost, we hope that you and your family are safe and navigating these unprecedented times with Scout Spirit.

The safety of our Scouts, Volunteers and Staff continue to be our top priority!
We continue to follow the recommendations of both National and State Department of Health and local Healthcare officials to slow the spread of COVID-19. Ned Lamont, Governor of Connecticut has agreed to open the State of Connecticut, Phase 1, as of today May 20, 2020.

As of Tuesday, May 26th, the Council will be offering porch side pick-up for any Scout Shop supplies. Please reach out to Tom Pankosky, Scout Shop Manager at to place your order.

The Greenwich Council, BSA has taken a careful and informed approach in evaluating whether to run Summer Day Camp programs at Seton Scout Reservation this year. The safety of our Scouts, Volunteers, Campers, and Staff is our first priority. Since the spread of this pandemic, we have been continually monitoring the situation, exploring various program scenarios and consulting with camp professionals, health experts, and government officials to make the right decision.

After a thorough evaluation, we have concluded that based on the information available and restrictions, we will not be able to conduct on-site Cub Scout or Scouts BSA Day Camp this summer.

Instead, we will be launching in the near future plans for Virtual Camp with a combination of program materials mailed to Scouts in advance, fun outdoor activities that Scouts can do at home or with other Scouts and supplemented by virtual programs.

Greenwich Scouting continues to move forward through Virtual Scouting! We encourage all local units to continue virtual meetings ( ZOOM ) and work together via the Scouting at Home resource page as there are great activities and links for Cub Scouts and Scouts BSA.

We have two virtual events coming up on June 6, 2020
Stay tuned for updates!

The following events have been rescheduled so please mark your calendars!
Wednesday, August 5, 2020
Saturday, August 29, 2020.

Please refer to the Council website:, our weekly newsletter and Facebook for current updates and notifications.
