The Salute to Queens Virtual Event will be hosted on Tuesday, December 8th 2020 at 5pm

Please join us as we will be honoring in a virtual event, Queens Scouts and Essential Adult Volunteers that have been at the forefront of the pandemic.

It would be an understatement to say that Covid-19 has affected our lives. Through the uncertainties of the pandemic, Scouting has remained in the lives of our youth. Scouting Packs, Troops and Crews from Queens quickly adjusted to ensure that our youth continued their adventure. Programs across Founders, Pathfinder and Tomahawk met virtually, mirroring the fun and educational activities they did in person. Many took part in camping trips right in their backyard and gathering virtually. When State guidelines allowed, our programs started meeting in person organizing hikes, service projects and other socially distant activities – always keeping safety at the forefront. Through this, we are serving thousands of young men and women in Queens building character and life skills.

We hope you will join us to support the Scouts of Queens and New York City. We have developed Rank Activity Boxes filled with year-long supplies for scouts to continue their scouting journey at-home.  The funds raised will support the comprehensive youth development programs of Queens Scouting and Rank Boxes for at-risk youth in our Scoutreach program. Of course, we would appreciate any contribution that you can make to this important cause, even if you are unable to attend the presentation.
