As always, the safety of our Scouts, volunteers, employees, and communities is our top priority. This checklist outlines several minimum guiding protocols that adult leaders/ volunteers must consider while working with local and state health departments, local councils, chartered organizations, and Scouting families on when and how to resume meetings, service projects, camping, and all other official Scouting activities. If it is not practical to meet these minimal protocols, do not restart in-person activities. Local Units must submit a safety plan to the Scout Office.
As Scouting moves to virtual and online platforms, the National BSA offers the following reminders to help keep kids safe. This information applies to all online Scouting activities and meetings. Please visit the Digital Safety and Online Scouting Activities website to make sure we keep our Scouts safe.
Free online Videos and Den leader
The videos were provided by local councils from across the country to support Den Leaders with virtual meetings. The content was not produced by the National BSA. Content is to be used as an aid and does not take the place of the program as designed and presented in the Den Leader Experience or Cub Scout Handbooks.
During the current pandemic, virtual resources may be used to complete requirements such as virtual tours in place of den outings. The standard of Cub Scout advancement is for the Cub Scout to do their best.
