Scouting Continues | #ScoutingatHome
A SCOUT SALUTE TO FALLEN HEROES
We are calling on Scouts across the country to build on the tradition of honoring our nation’s fallen heroes this Memorial Day by posting public tributes to our veterans in partnership with the National Cemetery Administration and by participating in the National Moment of Remembrance with a special Scout salute. Follow the steps at www.scouting.org to participate in this important effort. #ScoutSalute #NoVeteranEverDies
Resources to Keep Your Unit Humming Remotely
These out-of-the-box, in-home activities are centered around providing advancement-related content to help keep kids safe, engaged and to help them make the best of home time. Here are just a few examples of what councils are doing:
SCOUT SATURDAY LIVE! Next episode this Saturday!
Scout Saturday Live! (SSL!). SSL! premiered Saturday, March 28th at 10:30 a.m. Pacific, and was FUN for the entire family. Packed with games, projects, science experiments, and prizes, the SSL! livestream broadcast has something for everyone. The program will air every-other Saturday and is hosted by Scouts. Scouts who view and participate in the show’s activities have multiple opportunities to check-off requirements toward advancements, awards and merit badges. Coronavirus might cancel or postpone Scouting events, but it cannot stop us from having fun with Scouting programs!
Bryan on Scouting
He’s tried sumo wrestling with Conan O’Brien, farming with Jennifer Garner and jousting with Jason Sudeikis.
But Kevin Hart’s latest physical challenge might be his toughest yet.
In the April 23 episode of the YouTube comedy series Kevin Hart: What The Fit, the stand-up comedian and movie star will try his hand at Scouting.
Alongside singer and actor Nick Jonas, Hart will join actual Scouts and Scouting volunteers from California. They’ll explore the outdoors, learn new skills and try to complete merit badge requirements.
Youth Protection Reminder
It’s critical that we all continue to keep youth protection top-of-mind whether our Scouting activities are taking place in person or through a digital platform. Of note, remember that BSA prohibits any one-on-one interaction between an adult leader and a Scout – in person, online, through a web conference, over the phone, via text, or in any other form. Detailed youth protection information is available here. To ensure you are following safety standards for all Scouting activities, please reference the Guide to Safe Scouting. The BSA’s Social Media Guidelines serve as a complement to our youth protection policies.
