There have been a lot of questions circulating about how Troop 800 intends to safely resume regular Troop meetings and camping activities. A lot of thought and research has gone into the following plan, which has been shared with The Heart of Virginia Council, who intend to use it as the framework for their own plan. Please read it thoroughly, because it contains many very important changes and new requirements in many areas.

Now that we have entered Phase II of Virginia's reopening plan, it is time for us to get our scouts involved again and back on track.

Please read the article below for news and information pertaining to Scouting BSA's recent Chapter 11 filing notice.

Locally, we know the following:

  • The Heart of Virginia Council of Scouting BSA is a completely separate financial entity and is not affected by national's filing.
  • Scouting activities in the Commonwealth will continue as normal unless and until we are told otherwise.

If you’re reading this, you have probably experienced the positive impact of Scouting.

And I’m guessing that – like me – you want Scouting to be around to serve kids in our communities for many years to come.

I’m hoping you also agree that it’s important that the BSA supports victims of past abuse in Scouting. Quite simply, it’s the right thing to do.

Kroger Card

Kroger's Community Rewards Program will donate a percentage of your in-store purchases to the charitable organization of your choice -- hopefully BSA Troop 800.  All you have to do to make this happen is link your Kroger Plus Shopper's Card to the Troop's account.  This costs you nothing.  Your spending is 100% confidential and this program DOES NOT affect your earnings toward fuel program discounts.
