Self-Guided Activities

We realize with schools closed for extended periods, kids and families will be looking for educational and fun activities. These are great opportunities to review the depth of the Scouting program and work on badges not in your particular unit’s schedule. Remember that any electronic communication involving a youth member must adhere to BSA’s “two-deep” leadership policies, and Scouts should first complete their Cyber Chip to stay safe online. 

Also, remember that it is still important to follow Youth Protection policies even through online meetings and Scouting activities. Here is a link to the BSA Online and Social Media Guidelines. 

Scouts, be sure to talk to a parent or guardian before trying these at home.
