New Pennsylvania Child Protection Law

As you are probably aware a new law regarding Youth Protection, Pennsylvania Act 153, became effective this year.  The primary impact of this law is to make every Scouting volunteer, professional, and employee a designated reporter of any suspected child abuse to Child and Youth Services or Child Line.  In addition, the Act also redefined the definition of Child Abuse.  The effect was to lower the standard of what constitutes Child Abuse.  This was done to correct what was seen as too high of a standard which resulted in a significantly lower reporting of suspected Child Abuse as a percentage of population than the national average.

In 2014 we started a new campaign for Juniata Valley Council, Boy Scouts of America's Seven Mountains Scout Camp. Thank you to Seven Mountains Alumni Association & Totes for Tomorrow's Scouts who raised funds for the fireplace at Firelight Pavilion, Rotary Club of Lewistown for building a new pavilion at Leopold Campsite, Kim & Marty Dreibelbis for funding the Benjamin Dreibelbis Pavilion at Moyer Campsite, "A Friend of the Juniata Valley Council" for funding a Pavilion at Stevie Horn Campsite, and the Milesburg American Legion for funding a new Pavilion at Rhodes Campsite. In early 2015 we'll be announcing more exciting news including funders of 2 more pavilions. Thank you to everyone who shared their time, talent, and treasures to the Juniata Valley Council, BSA and Seven Mountains Scout Camp.
