BE PREPARED 

Be Prepared is more then just words on a patch. As the motto for Scouting  our founder Baden-Powell was once once asked “Prepared for what?” He responded, “Oh, any old thing.” While BP may not have been thinking of millions of children being kept home around the world we in the Mount Baker Council and in Scouting around the world are working to help Scouts and families continue the adventure even from their homes.

This page and the links below are resources for YOU and your Scouts to stay linked with Scouting and stay prepared for the next Scouting adventure!

JAMBOREE ON THE INTERNET 

Many Scout activities have been cancelled. School’s out. We miss our friends. Our community needs our help. But Scouting never stops.

This special edition of our largest digital jamboree will allow you to connect to others, learn new skills, bring Scouting online, and build new friendships during this challenging time. We’ll foster teamwork and intercultural interaction while enhancing safe social engagement and wellbeing. 

Keeping Scouts Engaged while Social Distancing

Scouts love Scouting, but any prolonged break can slow down momentum.  Keeping our Scouts engaged during this time of social distancing can help keep your unit strong, help alleviate the feeling of isolation, and give them a much needed connection to their fellow Scouts..
