Scouting can take place anywhere – even in the comfort of your home!
Here you will find a resource hub for parents and leaders to help support Scouting at home, with stay-at-home educational activities for any Scout rank, tips for continuing to work on advancements and kid-friendly content that connects Scouting with their daily lives. We will continue to add new content and resources to this hub regularly.
Our goal is to make it easier to deliver the Scouting program by making plans more accessible to Leaders and those who can help Leaders like our parents.
Be sure to share with us how your Scouts are Scouting at Home so we can share this inspiration with our Scouting families to continue our mission of building leadership and character. You can share by tagging us in your posts on Facebook or Instagram – be sure you are following us too!
