Scouts BSA, Venturing and Sea Scouting from a Distance

The state of Washington will be fully open by June 30, 2021!  that will be here before you know it, have you started planning how to transition your unit from virtual to in person?


Vaccines will be essential in helping us safely put the outing back in scouting.  And now that the vaccine is approved for those 12 and older, many of our scouts can get vaccinated as well! Here are some places you can go to book an appointment, and some where you don’t even need an appointment, you can walk right in:
