Digital Safety 

As Scouting increases the use of digital and online resources, such as video conferencing for Scouting meetings, projects and advancements the National Council has provided the following guidance. Note this guidance is not comprehensive and may differ from the legal requirements of state or local jurisdiction. 

Digital Safety


Scouting at Home

Across the nation, Scouters are finding ways to help keep their youth members engaged and Scouting. These out-of-the-box, in-home activities are centered around providing advancement-related content to help keep kids safe, engaged and to help them make the best of home time.

Cyber Chip

Today’s youth are spending more time than ever using digital media for education, research, socializing, and fun. To help families and volunteers keep youth safe while online, the Boy Scouts of America has developed the Cyber Chip with content expert NetSmartz®, part of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children® and training expert for many law enforcement agencies. All Cub Scouts are encouraged to earn the Cyber Chip.

Pour water into each container, large shallow ones work best. Put paper pieces on the surface of the water. Use your straw to pick up and “rescue” as many pieces of paper as you can in a given amount of time (10 seconds). Have fun!

Pipe Cleaner Heroes, optional

Challenge: customize the capes with one of the Scout Laws you feel a Hometown Hero would live!

Supplies:

  • Pipe cleaners
  • Felt, for capes or leftover cotton fabric, solid color, lighter to draw or decorate
  • Straws – we used paper straws, but regular straws are just fine (and much cheaper)
  • Googly eyes or use pencil, or paint
  • Pony beads
  • Wooden beads – 3/4 inch diameter beads (Joann's, Michael's, Hobby Lobby has them or can be ordered here  
  • Tacky Glue
  • Hot glue
