The membership fees will take effect August 1, 2021, for the 2021-2022 program year. If your unit’s recharter is still in defective status after the deadline of 7/31/21, your unit will be charged the new fees. If your recharter and all paperwork is successfully completed before the deadline, the old fees will still be in effect.

Last week the Centers for Disease Control updated their guidance related to COVID-19 and we are seeing where local stores, companies, and school systems are updating their policies as a result.

The Outdoor Education Center

At this time, our Council’s OEC approach to COVID-19 will remain in lock step with the Lancaster county and Lincoln city mandated mask requirements i.e wearing masks is optional if you are vaccinated, and masks are required if you are not vaccinated. Masks will not be required for outdoor activities.

Based on updates to the CDC recommendations on face coverings Camp Cornhusker has updated our face covering policy, as well.

We will not be requiring the wearing of face coverings while in outdoors settings.  However, it will still be policy that face coverings be worn while in buildings, such as the Korff, the Trading Post or the Dining Hall prior to eating. This goes for visitors who may attend on Thursday or Friday for Scouts, BSA or the last evening prior to departure for Cub Camps.

National Youth Leadership Training is an exciting, action-packed program designed for councils to provide youth members with leadership skills and experience they can use in their home troops and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others.

Partnering with Over the Edge Global, the Cornhusker Council and its participants will be rappelling off The Lincoln Marriott Cornhusker Hotel to raise funds and awareness for Scouting. Individuals must raise $1,000 for Scouting programs in Southeastern Nebraska to secure a rappelling spot. To register for this exciting event, go to: www.CornhuskerCouncil.org/OTE

Over the last few months, we have seen the Scouting community come together, even while physically apart, to bring solutions, relief and comfort to those in need. From making masks to supporting food banks, Scouting has been a vital partner for communities across the country.

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has worked to keep the membership fee as low as possible. Unfortunately, operating costs have continued to rise and COVID-19 has compounded the need to increase the fee to maintain the program.

The national organization of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy to achieve two key objectives: equitably compensate victims who were harmed during their time in Scouting and continue to carry out Scouting’s mission for years to come.

Cornhusker Council has not filed for bankruptcy. Meetings and activities, district and council events, other Scouting adventures and countless service projects are taking place as usual. There should be no change to the local Scouting experience.

All adults registered in the BSA have been asked to complete a new background authorization form in order to register for 2020. The wording on the form has created some confusion we would like to clear up.
