The Washington Crossing Council has been closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and continues to observe federal and state recommendations. Our first priority is the continued safety of our scouts, customers and staff.
The closure of Ockanickon Scout Reservation for summer 2020 and the temporary cessation of all in-person scouting programs has been previously communicated, and these have had a financial impact upon the Council’s ability to conduct daily operations. Moreover, public health officials continue to advise that social distancing is the most effective strategy to prevent the spread of COVID-19. As such, our Council Service Center at One Scout Way, Doylestown, PA 18901 will remain closed to all outside visitors, including customer walk-ins, through July 31st at the earliest. Many staff members at the Council Service Center regrettably have been placed on a temporary furlough that will last during the time the Council Service Center remains closed.
Until such time as we are able to reopen the Council Service Center and welcome back furloughed staff, here is a contact list you may use for continued service:
Field Service Matters: Andrew Nam, Field Director firstname.lastname@example.org
Fundraising Matters: Ray Garrison, Development Director email@example.com
Program, Virtual Scouting, Scout Shop: Todd Warner, Camping Director firstname.lastname@example.org
Youth Protection and Administration Matters: Magne Gundersen, Scout Executive/CEO email@example.com
We appreciate your support and understanding of this decision, and look forward to the day we can reopen our service center again.
