ALPENA, Mich –Boy Scout leaders can get back to meeting with their troops as the Michigan Crossroads Council provided scouting units a 5-step process necessary for re-engaging.

Scouting will look a little different as newly required procedures have been implemented for all units, registered members and family.

The precautionary steps are needed to help mitigate risks and liabilities leaders and others may be exposed to as in-person scouting resumes.

According to Scout Master Chris Harsch, he’s glad to reunite with his troop 92 as the virtual meetings have not been effective.

While apart, they discussed topics like first aid and honor because it was difficult to focus on skill.

Harsh said he misses his troop 92 and is already preparing for future events.

Unit leaders who do not comply with the State of Michigan guidelines is accepting liability for their unit, members and program.
