Scout Advancements from Home

Post by Matthew.Graham »

I hope that you are safe and healthy throughout this period of social distancing. While we may not be able to meet in person to continue advancement and activities, Councils across the country have been working on providing resources for Scouts, including what we call advancement challenges.

The Scout Advancement from Home page includes a series of 30 day challenges advancements and activities available for each rank up to 1st Class, using items found within most homes and activities that families can do together. This will allow Scouts who have been unable to attend meetings to be able to work on advancement and programming. There is also a listing of merit badges that could potentially be completed at home, and a listing of merit badges that could be completed partially, with specific requirements left to be completed once the quarantine is lifted.

We hope that Troop leaders and parents can use this to continue to educate their Scouts on the Scout Oath and Law, and continue their educational and extracurricular pursuits while schools have been shut down.
