Scouting from Home
Here is a guide from Black Feather District on Scouting from Home.
For newer Scouts: this is the perfect time to work on being able to repeat the Scout Oath, Law, Motto, and Slogan by memory. Check out the requirements of the Scout Rank in the attached BSA Requirements file. Parents must complete requirement #6 with their Scout. See this link for more information:
This is also the perfect time for new Scouts to start working on requirement 6 in Tenderfoot, which is a fitness requirement requiring tracking activities for 30 days. Or to complete their Cyber Chip for their grade.
