Scouting at Home

#ScoutingAtHome

While we all navigate the coronavirus COVID-19 crisis, the lessons of the Scout Oath and Law are as important now as they ever have been. Scouting can play an important role for youth and families during this challenging time, so the Cradle of Liberty Council encourages units to have virtual meetings and activities while we practice social distancing. Virtual meetings are also an opportunity to ensure our youth and their families are “mentally awake” by helping them learn as much as they can about the current situation, and “helping other people at all times” by knowing and following recommendations and spreading the word about the importance of Being Prepared.

Reminder about Youth Protection policies: BSA prohibits any one-on-one interaction between an adult leader and a Scout; in-person, online, on the phone, via text, or in any other form. More information here.

Operation Frontliner

Cradle of Liberty Council is encouraging its families to show their appreciation for the medical professionals who are working tireless hours under challenging conditions to help keep our communities safe. A Scout is Cheerful and we’re encouraging you and your Scouts to take a moment to show they care by expressing a hopeful message on social media or with a hand-written message to a hospital near you.
