COVID-19 Resources & Scouting at Home

Planning events and activities has been made more difficult by the challenges COVID-19 has created. Below are some resources to help navigate these strange and challenging times that we find ourselves in. Stay safe and adventure on scouts!

Scouting at Home

Keep on Scouting during this time of social distancing. There are many activities Scouts can do with their families or by themselves.

Leaders can take this time to assign rank work to their Scouts. Older Scouts can also work on merit badges (with their Scoutmaster's permission) by communicating with merit badge counselors over the phone, by email, or by videoconferencing.

IMPORTANT Youth Protection policies still apply when conducting meetings or communicating with Scouts virtually. Parents must be copied on all emails and text messages. Phone calls or videoconferences with Scouts need to include at least two adults.
