SCOUTING FROM HOME – Bear Activities

Hello Bear Scouts,

I know you are all staying safe with your families at home. It’s a big change to how we normally do things and is sometimes inconvenient, but the most important thing is that everyone stays safe! Even though we all must stay home, for now, we can still do scouting – Its called SCOUTING FROM HOME.

Some scouting can be done by you alone and some activities can be done with your family and your parents. If you feel like you want to take a break from school work at home, check-in here and look for some fun scout activities to do.
