Scouting at Home

Scouting doesn't have to be put on hold 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.
