Scouting can take place anywhere – even in the comfort of your home! As Scouts, we're ready and able to adapt to any situation. We've compiled a series of "Scouting at Home" resources to help you continue the adventure from online Merit Badges to 30-day challenges.
Your Guide to Videoconferencing
Unit meetings, Boards of Review and Scoutmaster Conferences don't have to be put on hold just because we're practicing social distancing. These Scouting essentials are critical when it comes to Scouting daily and getting ready for summer camp.
While you might not be meeting as a unit, videoconferencing is a great way to hold den, pack, troop, patrol and crew meetings as well as Boards of Review and Scoutmaster Conferences.

Your Guide to Advancement
Have advancement questions? We have advancement answers! The unprecedented situation created by COVID-19 has led to some advancement changes and extensions across all programs.
From Cub Scouts to Scouts BSA, we've compiled a comprehensive FAQ on everything you need to know to help your Scouts continue their Scouting adventure at home.

Scout Law Challenge for CAC
Council would love to see our scouts Scouting from Home, so we have created the Scout Law Challenge!!!! There are 12 points to the Scout Law, and there are 12 challenges to complete for this challenge. The challenge starts today and goes through the end of May. The best part..... everyone who completes the challenge will get a free patch depicting our very own Coronado staying safe with his mask while social distancing!!!! Forms for the challenge can be found on the Coronado Area Council website, or I will share a jpeg copy in the comments. Forms will be turned in to Unit Leaders who will sign and request the shoulder patches from council. We hope to see LOTS of pictures of our CAC Scouts!!!!
Earn a cool, one-of-a-kind patch and stay active during social distancing by taking part in this challenge. Scouting doesn’t have to just take place in a Monday night meeting! The adventures can continue with your own when you Scout at Home!
