Fire Up Your Scouts for the 2021 Virtual FREEZE OUT!
All Scout BSA units in Mayflower Council are invited to participate.
Have your patrols tune up those sleds for this year’s Freeze Out adventure. Your Scouts will hone cold weather skills, participate in a variety of races, competitions, and take home memories for a lifetime. There will not be any troop vs. troop competition this year, rather troops can compete Scout vs. Scout or patrol vs. patrol. Your choice!!
This is the first virtual Freeze Out! Each unit can decide when, where, and how to hold your troop freeze out. We are here to help you create a fantastic adventure for your Scouts.
Troops and Scouts will receive:
- Ribbons for each event (1st, 2nd, 3rd) these will be mailed to the troop when registration closes.
