Opportunity for Scout Outing
The Historical Society of Woodstock is currently completing a permanent exhibit (spring 2023) that will display many interesting tools and implements used by Ulster County families and industries over the past several centuries. The artifacts, along with accompanying descriptions, will be housed in a shed next to our museum at 20 Comeau Drive.
As den leaders we were always looking for new activities for either our den or the pack, and I think we could develop an interesting and educational outing for your scouts. The tools, with perhaps a scavenger hunt activity to hold their attention, could be just such an outing. Depending on interest and the size of your group(s), we could create a “station” activity with scouts rotating among the tool exhibit, the current exhibit at the Eames House Museum, and even something outdoors on the Comeau property.
CDC recommends wearing a mask in enclosed or crowded places, customers are encouraged to wear a mask when in the Scout Service Center.
The mission of the Rip Van Winkle Council is to provide an effective program for boys and girls, as well as young men and women, to help them develop desirable qualities of character and leadership, participating citizenship, personal fitness, good family values, and respect for the environment, and to prepare them to make ethical choices over their lifetime in achieving their full potential.
Further, it is the mission of the Rip Van Winkle Council to make the Scouting program available to all eligible youth in Ulster and Greene Counties. The council will develop and maintain the physical and financial resources to support an effective Scouting program in its territory and support the chartered organizations that use Scouting.
