Recap of Sep 11 Den Meeting: Families please read the Youth Protection Parent’s Guide and complete the activities with your scout.  This is the blue booklet insert you’ll find in your Webelo booklet.  Once you’ve completed the discussions and the Cyber Chip portion, please let me know.  I’ll sign his scouts book and order his Cyber Chip.  Please complete Duty to God and You adventure with your scout since this is a faith-based activity and personalized to your family’s faith practices.  Let me know when you’ve complete the adventure.  I will spend a few minutes discussing with your scout regarding what he’s learned and he will also make a short presentation to his Den about the adventure.  Safety - BSA has a policy in place that when a scout is attending any scout activity and their parent/legal guardian is not present, the parent/guardian MUST provide a completed BSA medical form (Part A and B) to be utilized in event of an emergency during their absence.  Since the form contains HIPPA protected medical information, the form is immediately returned to the family once they return to pick up their scout.   For new scouts, please be practicing the Bobcat rank requirements on pages 22-32.   For all scouts, feel free to review the bobcat requirements as some requirements are new.   In particular, learn the scout oath and scout law -- these are conveniently located on the back of your scout book! J  If you are interested in earning the religious emblem for your faith, let me know and I can assist you in connecting with the resources.  When a scout earns the religious emblem for their faith, they are awarded a rectangle purple patch with a silver “knot” inside.  It is worn above the scouts left breast pocket.  The scout can wear this patch his entire scouting career and can continue to wear as an adult leader.  Useful websites:
