Scouting at Home Challenges

Scouting can take place anywhere – even in the comfort of your home!
We will be sharing with you weekly activities for your Scout to continue to work on their advancements at home. You can find easier, at-home activities for your Cub Scouts advancements on at our Resource Hub.

Weekly Challenges

This week we want to challenge our Scouts to participate in Scouting for Food this month to benefit Atlanta Community Food Bank or any local food pantry of your choice. Help us reach our goal of 10,000 meals donated!

No one should ever go hungry and the reality is, more families are having a tough time feeding their family because of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

To participate in the challenge, the next time you go to the grocery store, pick an item or two from the items that are most needed from the Food Bank. Challenge your neighbors and family to participate in the campaign by email, phone call, or posting to social media.  

We ask that every family visits our website to find how easy it is to collect and donate food during this unique time.

This week we want to challenge our Scouts to make the world a cleaner place.

When you and your Scout take a walk outside, stop and clean up any litter you or your Scout find. This will leave the world a better place than how you found it.

To participate in the challenge, simply seek out a litter-filled area or overflowing trash can, clean it up and share before and after photos online using the hashtag #ATLScouts #ScoutingatHome.  

This week we challenge our Scouts to spread cheer and share a message of support to a nursing home and assisted living residents.

The American Health Care Association and the National Center for Assisted Living teamed up to offer this website where anyone can record a video to send a message of support and cheer to a nursing home and assisted living residents across the country. 

This week we challenge our Scouts to use their mind and keep them mentally awake while they are at home.

Share with us how your family is keeping mentally awake while staying socially distanced.

This week we challenge our Scouts to get outside and be active for 30 minutes or more. Click here to find strength-training exercise ideas for kids.

Right now, Scouts and Scout Leaders are mobilizing to help our neighbors and serve as a force for the greater good for our community. Scouts are hosting food drives, sewing masks and writing letters to nursing homes all to help others during this time.

 
Send us photos or a video of how your Scout is helping others in the community at a safe distance. Show us how you are Scouting On! #ATLScouts #ScoutingatHome

The Scout Oath and Law is part of the fabric that binds Scouts together in unity. It is a promise to uphold and a devotion to one's self and their community.

Have your Scout stand with the sign raised high and recite the Scout Oath and Law. Send us photos or a video of your Scout reciting the Oath and Law. Show us how you are Scouting On! #ATLScouts #ScoutingatHome

Citizenship means being a member of and supporting one's community and country. As Scouts, let's show our support for our country and fellow citizens! This week we are challenging everyone to draw a picture of the American flag and place it in your window. Send us photos of your Scouts and their flags. Let's show the community that our Scouts care!
