Scouting at Home

Scouting can take place anywhere – even in the comfort of your home! As Scouts, we're ready and able to adapt to any situation. We've compiled a series of "Scouting at Home" resources to help you continue the adventure from online Merit Badges to 30-day challenges.


Your Guide to Videoconferencing

Unit meetings, Boards of Review and Scoutmaster Conferences don't have to be put on hold just because we're practicing social distancing. These Scouting essentials are critical when it comes to Scouting daily and getting ready for summer camp.

While you might not be meeting as a unit, videoconferencing is a great way to hold den, pack, troop, patrol and crew meetings as well as Boards of Review and Scoutmaster Conferences.
