Youth fatalities for East Area Texas Council

This is an extremely difficult time for our Scouting family. We are very sad to confirm the deaths of two youth participants following a boating incident. A third youth has been airlifted to an area hospital after sustaining injuries. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims’ families. We will support them in any way that we can.

“I would like to thank the emergency teams who responded and assisted our Scouts and volunteers throughout this incident.”
