Scouting at Home

Scouting at Home is a new special edition of ScoutScene to keep our Scouting community engaged each week. As a Scouter, discover how to stay connected with your Section and Group to support continued programming. For parents, explore ideas to keep your kids active with great, safe Scouting adventures that can be done at home or online!

Don’t forget to share your Scouting activities by posting a photo on social media (#ScoutsDoStuff) or distributing them amongst your Section through email or a Group Facebook page.

Stove Kit Show us how you are Scouting at home and you could win an MSR Pocket Rocket Stove Kit for your next adventure! Simply post a photo and description of your activity on social media, and tag both @scoutscanada and a friend. Contest is open to everyone (Scouting members and non-members) and ends April 5 at 11:59am ET

We recognize that a change to online and at home activities does create a vulnerability for some children especially those in difficult or at-risk living conditions. In line with our safety culture and values, Scouts Canada continues to prioritize safety and offers support by providing access to various experts and resources. We encourage kids to reach out to Kids Help Phone (1-800-668-6868) for 24/7 counselling. You can also visit Cybertip.ca for best practices on internet safety or review Scouts Canada’s Safety Tips on cyber safety and social media.

As always, be sure to keep the Two-Scouter Rule in mind, whether engaging in online conversations through email, virtual conversations with other Scouts or on social media, and by phone.
