Scout Service Center/Scout Shop
- The Scout Service Center & Scout Shop will re-open to the public on Wed. May 27, 2020, at 9 am. In the interest of safety for our youth members, families, Scouting volunteers, and staff, the following changes will be in place.

  • We ask all visitors and staff at the Scout Service Center to maintain the minimum of 6’ social distancing and to NOT visit the Scout Service Center if they have a temperature or any signs of illness.
  • All visitors need to wear a mask (a Scout is courteous).
  • The Scout Shop will be open to one family at a time.  We request that you wait outside for the family in front of you to depart before entering if you come in and see that there are other customers.
  • Visitors are encouraged to schedule a meeting with the respective staff member they are doing business with. This would include Scout Shop orders.
  • For those preferring not to interact with people at the Scout Service Center, there will be a tote in the entryway where items can either be picked up or dropped off.
