The Lincoln Heritage Council is hopeful that our Scouts and families are continuing to follow the social distancing guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and our local governing bodies and “doing your best” to stay safe and healthy.

Following federal, state and local protocols, we are extending our closures of the Scout Service Center, Scout shops, camp properties and in-person Scout meetings until June 1.

Our Council leadership and our Health Advisory Committee are closely following the daily updates and long-range projections from local officials and the CDC. We are in continual discussions regarding our ability to safely resume Scouting both on a Council level as well as the unit level.

We hope to provide more definitive information in the coming weeks regarding our steps to provide a safe summer program. We recently sent communications to all Cub Scout families and Scouts BSA families regarding camp. To view those communications, please follow the links below.

We appreciate your ongoing commitment to Scouting during these unprecedented times. We have seen hundreds of unit leaders proactively finding ways to keep our Scouts engaged and advancing while staying safe at home.

As a council, we have collectively been busy thanking our local frontline heroes, donating needed supplies to our medical communities, setting up blood drives, and providing online seminars with mental health professionals as a service to our youth and parents during this crisis.

As we look ahead to the easing of the federal and local stay-at-home restrictions, please know we are committed to making the best decisions we can with the safety of our Scouts, leaders, and community as our primary concern.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at:
