Save our Pool Progress!

0528141018 imagejpeg_1

Progress is being made on all fronts for the pool at Camp Verdugo Oaks!

First, we have raised $6000 of our goal!  We have received several direct donations, sold many tiles, but we need to get more of our Save Our Pool cards out!  They are only $20 and each buyer receives free pizzas, burgers, chicken dinners, go karting, roller skating, massages, manicures for mom and so much more!  You don’t even have to sell them, (although $2.50 of each card goes to your pack, troop, team or crew!) but if every family bought just one, we’d have enough to finish the pool!  Call the Scout Shop today!

Policies

Adult leaders should always strive to conduct Scouting activities in a safe and prudent manner. Policies and guidelines have been established by the BSA because of the need to protect members from known hazards that have been identified through nearly 90 years of experience. Limitations on certain activities should not be viewed as stumbling blocks; rather, policies and guidelines are best described as stepping stones toward safe and enjoyable adventures.

The Verdugo Hills Council will endeavor to keep these policies up to date as required. If you have a question or wish to add another policy, contact the
Council Service Center.
