During these unprecedented times and with the safety of our Scouts and volunteers at the top of our mind, face-to-face Scouting is on hold.  Here are several activities you and your Scout can continue their Scouting Adventure #ScoutingAtHome.

Videoconferencing is a great way to stay connected with your units! This Bryan on Scouting article has links to Webex, Zoom, and Google. It offers an example of a Troop to the east of us that is up and running with remote meetings using Webex.

Remember that any electronic communication involving a youth member must adhere to BSA’s “two-deep” leadership policies, and Scouts should first complete their Cyber Chip to stay safe online.

When we can get back to a sense of normalcy, the Juniata Valley Council, BSA program will be stronger than ever.  Until we can gather once again for regular meetings, please take advantage of these great #ScoutingAtHome activities.
