ScoutPoint.org

 

The Northern Lights Council has developed the Scout Point program for youth that live in areas where there is no traditional pack or troop within a reasonable distance.

Previously, youth that lived in rural areas only had the option of becoming a "Lone Scout". Now with ScoutPoint, they can be a member of a "virtual" pack or troop, doing some activities at home and having meetings online with other Scouts. A few times during the year, Scouts from the same ScoutPoint pack or troop will get together for in-person activities.
