Join in as Scouting once again does a Good Turn for the Delaware Valley at this year’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

For over 30 years, thousands of Scouts have served their local communities by participating in Scouting For Food. This year, after the hard work of the Scouting for Food campaign is complete, we have the opportunity to promote the good work of Scouting to the entire Delaware Valley. This is a great opportunity for positive public relations exposure and a fun experience for the youth in your Troops.

This activity is for all Scouts BSA 12 years old and older, Venturers and Explorers.

All Scouts must be in full class A uniform and masked!


• Long sleeve shirt, (please wear long underwear under the Scout Uniform because jackets cannot be worn). or

• Short Sleeve Shirt with a sweatshirt under it.

• Scouts BSA- red sweatshirt

• Venturers- green sweatshirt

• Long Scout Pants.

• Hiking type boots:


• A Pair of warm GLOVES

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, no one under the age of 12 is permitted to participate.
