To all of our Bee Cave District Scouters: our district committee, together with the Capitol Area Council staff and volunteers are focused on the safety of the youth and volunteers we serve. As we monitor the Texas Department of Health Services and the CDC for the current status and best practices for monitoring and mitigating the Coronavirus impact, we wanted to share the most recent information from the Council as well as our local district impacts.
The Capitol Area Council has already postponed the March 21 STEMboree event as well as the March 28 Volunteer Award Reception. Our Bee Cave District Camporee, originally scheduled for April 3-5, has also been postponed.
The Rare Merit Badge University, scheduled for April 25, is still planned at this time as we continue to monitor events.
Based on evolving guidance about group meetings, the Council strongly recommends that until March 31, 2020 all District-level meetings be conducted through video- or tele-conference. Units should decide among their leadership, families, and chartered organization about whether to postpone meetings, campouts, and other activities.
Current updates from the Capitol Area Council on the Coronavirus impact on council operations can be found here:
We will send an additional update later this month. Thanks for your support of Scouting.
