Staying Connected to Scouting

What happens when a global pandemic limits face-to-face interaction? The Scouting community, globally, turns to Scouting@Home. We’ve compiled a range of programs and resources as we move away from face to face Scouting that can be found on our Scouts Queensland page here.

Over the course of the next few months, we’ll be releasing programs and activities to support Scouting@Home. You might choose to complete these as individuals, in Patrols or as Units, virtually.

Don’t forget to check in with your Scouting friends each week either! Many Scout Groups have already commenced virtual meetings, so if you are unsure how to do this, there are a network of others who might be one or two steps ahead that can help you out.

You can find out more about the Youth Program here.

Uncertain about what systems are available for you to use to stay in touch?

Here is a list of what some Scout Groups around the world have already started using:

  • Microsoft Teams
  • Zoom
  • Skype
  • Google Hangouts
  • Facebook Messenger (Venturer Scouts and above)
