Keep Scouting Going - Scouting during COVID Resources
BSA has compiled a great list of activities and ideas for you to do with your Scouts on their Scouting-at-Home page.
Montana Council sent out this compilation titled "The Merits of At-Home Scouting: Councils Get Creative as Scouts are Required to Stay Home" of what is being done in many other areas that might inspire you. This could open up some real possibilities for our rural activities and during bad weather here in Montana.

"Scouts are resourceful. So, while your troop may not be able to go on a weekend campout together during the COVID-19 pandemic, this time could be ideal to learn how to play a new game or work on the car or prepare a first aid kit for the family."
BSA is adding new merit badges frequently, so check out this updated Digital Merit Badge Pamphlet List now live on Kindle!
Featured Resource - Live the Oath and Law by Scoutmaster Katie Daughenbaugh from Troop 619
This is just just a sample of the things in the Live the Oath and Law document:
A Scout is:
Helpful: Write emails or video chat with family members, friends, or neighbors to encourage them to donate to a charity in need, like the Food Bank (https://gallatinvalleyfoodbank.org/give-help/how-to-donate/).
Friendly: Write a note of encouragement, love, or simply one to engage in a conversation, with an elderly community member in a nursing home. Then mail this card to "Any Resident" at any of the facilities in town, like Gallatin County Rest Home (1221 Durston Rd, Bozeman 59715), Hyalite Country Care (6040 S. 3rd Ave, Bozeman 59715), or any other facility of your choice.
