Open District Positions

Attention all Cherokee Scouters!  What an exciting time to be a Scout in the Lincoln Heritage Council!  With so many great events planned in the district, it’s no question that Scouting is alive and thriving in the city of Louisville!  From Cub-o-Rees, to camp cards and from Pinewood Derby’s to Day camp there is something for everyone! All of our events are managed and staffed by volunteers serving behind the scenes to ensure that our scouts have the best program possible.  If you or someone you know is looking to get involved on the district level and would like to help volunteer their time and talent please contact Steve Shaw, steve.shaw@scouting.org to discuss our open positions and where we could use some help!  This person can be currently registered with the BSA or an influential member of your community that would like to get involved!

 

Scout BSA Unit Leaders and Parents:

Thank you for your cooperation and positive attitudes in following the restrictions placed on Scouting meetings and activities over the past eight weeks. Keeping our Scouting family and community safe is important. I am proud of our families for living the Scout Oath to “help other people at all times.”

For the last two months, we have been exploring all options related to running our summer resident and day camps. We developed a Health Advisory Committee that includes the top leaders in their respective field.

Knowing how important the role summer programs play in a Scout’s experience, we have had detailed conversations with local health departments, state officials, proactively contacted the Governor’s Office for input. We have reviewed every possible option to operate camps this summer in a manner that is safe and in alignment with the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

Due to the ever-changing situation surrounding COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our cam operations this summer. This includes all Scouts BSA camps, Cub Scout Day Camps, Cud Adventure Days, Cub and Webelos Resident camp and NYLT courses.

I know this announcement is disappointing. As a past camp staff member, camp director and the father of a Scout, I share that disappointment. I thank you for your continued patience and understanding through these unprecedented times.

Our team of dedicated staff and volunteers are currently developing several exciting activities that will keep Scouts engaged, learning and advancing in rank his summer. More information will be shared on our social media pages and through emails in the coming weeks.

Thank you for your commitment to a safe and quality Scouting program.

Scout on,

Jason Pierce

Scout Executive/CEO
