Thank you for your interest in supporting the Boy Scouts!
Like all local business and non-profits, the Twin Valley BSA been negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. However, Scouting continues to make a difference and be active! This past summer over 50 Daytime Outdoor Summer Adventures were planned and over 120 Scouts participated in 370+ adventures locally. These adventures included taking merit badges, Webelos Adventures at Camp Norseland and Camp Cedar Point, shooting sports at Caribou Gun Club and Fairmont Gun Club, rock climbing at Blue Mounds State Park, Zip Lining at Kerfoot Canopy Tours, Horseback riding, and more.
Scouts earned merit badges such as Archery, Astronomy, Basketry, Camping, Canoeing, Chemistry, Chess, Woodcarving, Environmental Science, First Aid, Fishing, Fly Fishing, Fish and Wildlife Management, Horsemanship, Kayaking, Orienteering, Pioneering, Rifle Shooting, Rock Climbing, Shotgun Shooting, Weather, Welding, and Wilderness Survival.
During the 2020 state mandated stay at home orders, 185 merit badges were offered and earned on-line including Salesmanship, Digital Technology, Gardening, Graphic Arts, American Business, Law, Fishing, and Art. We held four on-line STEM Camps for Cub Scouts with a total of 40 participants. We held a virtual camporee with 51 participants. We even held an on-line Scouting for Food campaign raising $6,525 supporting 18 different local food banks. This is enough money to purchase approximately 78,300 pounds of food!
