Virtual Scouting Options
During this time, we'll do our best to give suggestions and guidance on ways Scouting can continue virtually (digital meetings, at-home advancement, etc). Stay tuned to nlcbsa.org and our social media channels for updates. In the meantime, follow our Facebook pages for other fun ideas. Share your ideas for virtual meetings on social media using #ScoutingFamily and #ScoutingAtHome.
These Scouts live in North Dakota, Minnesota, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Texas. That's 21 different states!
Our council is also in the process of creating an online Scouting program delivery system that will be available soon - Scout Point. This system was being designed to offer the Scouting program to rural areas where a Scout unit may not be located nearby (similar to Lone Scouts). In the event that Scouts can't meet in person, Scout Point will be made available for all Scouts until in-person meetings can resume.

Scouting Magazine App
The magazine isn't being printed anymore, but leaders can still get up to date info on the app.
The idea that a Scout should treat others as he or she wants to be treated—a Scout is kind—is woven throughout the programs and literature of the Boy Scouts of America. When a Scout follows the principles of the Scout Oath and Scout Law, bullying and hazing situations should never occur.
We encourage all of our Cub Scout Packs to participate in the BSA Adopt a School program to help build, maintain and strengthen relationships with the local elementary school.
As schools across the country continue to limit distribution of information about Scouting to students, it is important that we have good relationships with school principals, school board members and other educators. Strong relationships may mean the difference in being able to communicate what Scouting offers for familes.
