Scouting can take place anywhere – even in the comfort of your home!
The Mid-America Council has set up this page to serve as a resource hub for parents and leaders to help support Scouting at home, with stay-at-home educational activities for any Scout rank, tips for continuing to work on advancements and kid-friendly content that connects Scouting with their daily lives. Our goal is to make it easier to deliver the Scouting program by making plans more accessible to Leaders and those who can help Leaders like our parents.
Check back often as we will continue to add new content and resources to this hub regularly.
Visit the events calendar page for the latest updates on Council events.
