Welcome to
Troop 18!

 
We are PAUSED till 1/21/21
 
To Our Scouting Family,
First, we hope everyone and their respective families are safe and doing well during these trying times. We wish to commend the efforts of our unit leaders and families first for your vigilance and for the extraordinary efforts you have made thus far to sustain quality Scouting programs and to keep Scouts engaged and advancing.
Second, we want to thank everyone for your diligence and patience as we navigate through the current pandemic. We know many of you have been personally impacted by COVID-19, through either the loss of loved ones, loss of employment, loss of social interaction, or know someone who is recovering or has recovered from COVID-19.
Over the course of the pandemic, the Daniel Webster Council continues to monitor the community impact of COVID-19 across the state. The recent surge in COVID-19 cases in the state has been a growing concern and after consultation with our Council Risk Management Committee and our Council Medical Advisors (inclusive of a medical doctor, a nurse practitioner, and a staff member of the Department of Health and Human Services), it has been determined it is necessary to implement a pause on all unit, district, and council-wide activities. This required PAUSE took effect Monday, December 14, 2020, and continues through Thursday, January 21, 2021.
Troop 18 has taken appropriate arrangements to postpone or reschedule any Scouting activities we had scheduled during this time period. The health and safety of our Troop 18 Scouts and their families is of paramount importance and must continue to be our first priority.
What does a PAUSE mean?
It means in-person activities or meetings cannot take place during this time. We believe this pause will reduce exposure through the upcoming holidays and affords families enough time post-holidays for self-monitoring, and if necessary, self-quarantining. This action will allow Troop 18 Scouts to resume activities in a safe and effective manner. ???????

Sports vs Scouting

In Scouting we will never ...
Tell your son / daughter he is not good enough.
Tell your son or daughter they missed a meeting and won't play this week.
Cut him from our Team.  Yell at him.

In Scouting we will ...
Encourage him / her to achieve the best he can do,
Support him / her and reward his efforts,
Help him / her grow and respect others in spite of our differences,
Talk to him /her when he needs correcting and guidance.

An Eagle Scout will probably go a lot farther than the captain of the team.
