Conducting virtual meetings can be fun and a great way to stay engaged with your Scouts and leaders. However, safety precautions and BSA guidelines must be followed when conducting virtual meetings and activities.

We have put together several resources for conducting safe virtual meetings. Be sure to visit our ScoutOn page for more details, guidelines and helpful tools. Remember to #ScoutOn during this stay at home period but do it safely.


The Connecticut Rivers Council has partnered with Giving Grid for a fun way to make a contribution! Please click the image above, or here to learn more. Pick out a square with the amount your family would like to donate, and then upload your favorite photo.

Thank you for being a Scouting champion and helping us “fill the grid!”

With the concerns of COVID-19 -- that doesn’t mean Scouting stops. On this page you will find useful program information for Scouts, Scout Leaders, and parents to continue Scouting on.

Here is just a sampling of some of the resources available:

  • Virtual Meeting Resources
  • Virtual Den, Pack and Troop Meeting plans
  • 30 Day Challenges for Cub Scouts and Scouts BSA
  • Merit Badges for social distancing
  • Virtual Merit Badges, Games and More...

Check it Out and #ScoutOn!
