The Northeastern Pennsylvania Council Scout Shop is well stocked with all of the Scouting program items that you may need. From awards to uniforms to that Special Occasion Scouting gift , we've made a concerted effort to have a complete inventory and are carrying more items than we ever have before. We continue to work very hard to have the items you'll need to run you program in stock and available when you need them. And, if for some reason we're out of an item, it won't be very long before it's in. Inventory is replenished frequently and that means we probably have whatever you need in stock. It's our commitment to you to have what you need, when you need it!

The Boy Scouts of America has eliminated its Tour and Activity Plan, shifting the focus away from paperwork and toward creating a safe space for Scouts to enjoy the program as designed.
The Tour and Activity Plan was a two-page document submitted to your local council for approval at least 21 days before longer trips. As of April 1, 2017, it is no more.
Richard Bourlon, team leader for Health and Safety, encourages unit leaders to instead use a “flexible risk-assessment strategy” when planning outings.
“We looked at how the old plan was being used, how many people were using it, how many calls we received about it, and how much time this took staff and volunteers, versus the return – did it create a safer environment?” Bourlon says. “There wasn’t a correlation, so we’re giving them that time back.”
