You're invited to join the Boy Scouts of America's "National Camp-In", a fun digital event for all families featuring camp-themed activities and a virtual 5K hike benefiting Feeding America.

From camp-style cooking to campfire singalongs, this virtual event will bring the best parts of Scouting to life! And...you don't need to be a Scout to join the fun! All families are welcome – even families whose children are not currently in Scouting!

Tune in all day, or jump in and out for particular activities. We hope you'll join us from your living room... backyard... or wherever you happen to be!

The event will stream live on Facebook. Tune in here tomorrow at 10:00 AM CT (11:00 AM ET)! For a full schedule of events and more about the National Camp-In, visit www.Scouting.org/CampIn .

Please Join Us In The COVID-19 Emergency Response #GivingTuesdayNow
# GivingTuesdayNow
COVID - 19  
Emergency
Response
Help Us Raise  
Awareness!


Scouting families throughout Tuscarora Council need your support now more than ever with much needed funds for the youth we serve in our Scouting communities.

Scouts and Scouting families council-wide are out there doing their Good Turns daily in the fight to flatten the curve!

Exploring is reflected on the front lines in our communities. Health care personnel, first responders, law enforcement, fire-fighters —virtually all the Exploring career fields are represented as “essential workers” during the COVID-19 pandemic!

Scouting develops the character to step up when the call goes out, and Exploring supports the interest of the youth we serve in these career fields!

#GivingTuesdayNow is May 5, 2020

What Is GivingTuesdayNow?

#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of giving and unity, set to take place on Tuesday, May 5, 2020 as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.

The day is designed to drive an influx of generosity and support for communities and nonprofits such as Scouting around the world. It’s a day when we can all come together and give back in all ways, no matter who or where we are.

Please join us to support the fight against COVID-19 by participating in #GivingTuesdayNow
