Dear Fellow Scouters,

The Boy Scouts of America is permitting the application of packs to be part of an “Early Adopter Program.” As such, a new Family Scouting page has been added to the tac-bsa.org website.

Resources can be found on this page such as:

  • A form which outlines the criteria that packs have to meet to apply to be part of this program.

    Scouting for the whole family is part of our organization.  We are aware that some packs of a high degree of interest. The council reserves the right to select which packs may participate in the program but any pack that is registered (completed recharter) may apply. The Transatlantic Council Executive Board will include this in our board agenda and approval is expected on January 20th.

  • BSA documentation on the program that may answer additional questions that units may have (also see, Early Adopter FAQs)

    It is important that all the criteria is met and that packs understand there is a commitment to the success of the program and their feedback is required. It is important to also know that this is not a tool for small packs to add members to existing dens but to create all girl dens with a minimum of 4 girls in each new den. The dens may not be mixed (i.e. Lions/Tigers or Wolves/Bears) even if the boy dens include multiple ranks.

We are proud of our units and what they accomplish. We wish to give all of our packs an opportunity to consider being an early adopter. If a pack has not currently finished its recharter including payments, we will still consider the pack after they accomplish the necessary requirements.

The BSA website with current information is at https://www.scoutingnewsroom.org/family-scouting/

Wishing you all the best for a happy and healthy New Year and thank you for your support to our scouting program.

Yours in Scouting,

Vince
