Rank Advancement Walk-Through at Susquehanna State Park
We will be hosting a walk-through rank advancement ceremony on Saturday, June 13th at Susquehanna State Park Picnic Area for all scouts. Our formal rank advancement ceremony plans keep getting cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns but we don’t want to delay any further in getting our scouts the awards and achievements they’ve worked so hard to earn. Although this is not an ideal situation and we wish things were different, it’s a way to put closure to this past scout year and begin working on the next year’s rank along with summer activities!
It is important that you attend at your designated time so that we can maintain social distancing requirements and avoid a gathering of more than 10 people at a time (per current Governor’s order). If you have more than one scout, you can choose which time works best for you and attend at that time.
Scouts and their Families in each den should arrive for a walk-through during the following times:
Lions/Tigers/Wolves: Arrive anytime between 10am and 11:30am
Bears/Webelos: Arrive anytime between 11:30am and 12:30pm
Format: Families will drive into parking lot and a pack member will direct you where to park and wait depending on how many cars are ahead of you. You and your scout(s) once given the go-ahead will exit your vehicle to then honor your scout and have him/her receive any outstanding achievements (belt loops or pins), awards, and rank earned. We will have a photo opportunity for scouts and their families along with a few take-home keepsakes.
Pack families need to adhere to social distancing requirements and limit physical contact. All attendees must wear a face covering when within 6 feet of another individual.
Please have your scout dress in field uniform (class A formal uniform).
Please be patient if others have arrived before you creating a wait. We plan to move quickly though with each scout to minimize contact time but want to give each family time to enjoy the moment.
