Service Centers and Scout Shops to Remain Closed Indefinitely

Dear New Birth of Freedom Council Scouting Family,

As you likely already know, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf has directed all “non-life-sustaining” businesses to close to help stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus.  In accordance with that directive, the Mechanicsburg and York Service Centers and Scout Shops will remain closed indefinitely until Gov. Wolf rescinds this order.

Our professional staff members continue to work remotely and are available for our Scouting public via phone or email. Please see our full staff directory at If you are not sure who to contact, please email us at

As announced previously, all of our camps will remain closed through at least April 30.

Further updates, including when we will be able to reopen, will be posted on the Council’s website ( and Facebook page.

Please share this information with other volunteers and do your very best to keep yourselves and others safe. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time.

Ronald M. Gardner, Jr.
Scout Executive
