"This program is amazing and very inexpensive. Josh completed the Cyber Summer Camp last week and had a lot of fun with it. If you are still trying to find ways to keep the kiddo active and engaged at home, this is a great way to do it. They have fun experiments, physical fitness programs, and even lunchtime activities for the whole family. I'm happy to answer any questions as well, like
I said Josh did Cyber Summer Camp and is now signed up for Survive the
Summer."

IN A HOMESCOUTING ADVENTURE

 

In March of 2020, the Buckeye Council, Boy Scouts of America in Canton, OH created HomeScouting. HomeScouting is designed to continue supporting kids, units, and leaders to continue their Scouting adventure during the Coronavirus Pandemic. 

HomeScouting launched with its six-week Spring BreakOut Program and has evolved to serve over 10,000 youth and their families in all 50 states and across the world in 5 countries.

 

Recent HomeScouting programs like Cyber Summer Camp and Survive the Summer have helped thousands of kids stay connected to their Scouting adventures and earn advancements and awards. Cyber Summer Camp continues to deliver an exciting STEM-based adventure featuring live webinars with NASA engineers. We put the Outing Back In Scouting with Survive the Summer, helping kids develop survival skills for wilderness and the modern world.

 

Now with the launch of the HomeScouting Adventure Club, or HAC for short, you'll be able to continue bringing Scouting to life in your living room and backyard through monthly resources and tools. Learn More about past HomeScouting Adventures. 

FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY! 

 

All HomeScouting Adventures are just that: an at-home Scouting adventure to have as a family! Scouting has always been a program that can take place at home as a family, so each month's theme and content will feature items for everyone! Each month will have a theme with connected advancements. With enough work, each Scout can earn up to 1 Cub Scout Adventure or 1 merit badge on a monthly basis.

FLEXIBLE & EASY TO USE CONTENT

 

 

All HomeScouting programs are on demand adventures. As soon as the monthly content is released on the first of each month, you will have access to all of the published content for that month. You can move through the program at your own pace and on your own time. There are no scheduled Zoom meetings and no deadlines. Content will expire 60 days after it is published to give you two months to complete any specific at home adventure. 

All HomeScouting Adventures come with easy to use printable tracking tools and simple worksheets to guide you through your adventures. We are committed to providing as much content as you want. If you want to learn about the in-depth details about a certain subject, we've got you covered! If you want to learn the basics, we've got that covered too!

Can I join the HomeScouting Adventure Club at any time?

Yes! Anyone can join the HomeScouting Adventure Club at any point in time. As soon as you register by purchasing a package and create an account, you'll have access to that month's content and future months as they release. 

Can families from other councils join the HomeScouting Adventure Club? 

Yes! The HomeScouting Adventure Club is for Scouts across the nation! HomeScouting Adventures are not meant to replace any in-person Scouting programs, but to enhance the experience at home with your family. 

What about Cyber Summer Camp or Survive the Summer, is it too late to join those programs before the HomeScouting Adventure Club starts?

No! You can sign up now and have access to the content until 9/1. We will also leave the “final reporting” tool as an open form so whenever you completes the program, you can fill it out and we’ll send the info to your unit leader. You will have to find your own merit badge or Nova counselor to fully complete those advancements. 

Will there be materials mailed to my house to complete the activities?

No. We designed the HAC to meet the needs of Scouting families through flexible, easy to use  Instead of a box filled with things found in your local Scout Shop, the HomeScouting Adventure Club provides you the tools and resources that you NEED to make Scouting come to life in your living room and backyard. Most adventures in Scouting can be completed with household items, but we will be featuring theme-related product in the store monthly to enhance your HAC. 

When checking out, it appears that I have to make two separate transactions to subscribe to the HomeScouting Adventure Club and additional products, is that correct?

Yes. Subscribing to the HomeScouting Adventure Club is a separate transaction. If you want to purchase additional items in the store you will have to go back and make a second transaction. 

Will my credit card be charged now even though the program doesn't start until September?

No. You will notice that when checking out there is a "free trial" of a certain number of days. This is to prevent your card from being charged prior to the HomeScouting Adventure Club starting in September. Your first monthly payment will be charged after the "free trial" time period ends which will be in September. Example: if you register on 8/1, your "free trial" time period will be 30 days, therefore your first HAC payment will be on 9/1. 

Does that mean there is a free trial?

No. The term free trial when registering is only to prevent early charges. There is not a free trial specifically for the HomeScouting Adventure Club, however you may explore parts of Cyber Summer Camp and Survive the Summer to see what the digital content for the HomeScouting Adventure Club will be like. Areas to explore:

Cyber Summer Camp - Pre-Camp Mission

Cyber Summer Camp - Day 1 Launch Pad (Space Exploration)

Cyber Summer Camp - Day 1 The Lab (Space Exploration)

Survive the Summer - Week 1 Challenge (Survive through Skills)

How does HomeScouting Adventure Club compare to Cyber Summer Camp or Survive the Summer?

Cyber Summer Camp was a week-long focused program with new content releasing every day and Survive the Summer's content was released weekly. 1 Day of Cyber Summer Camp = 1 Week of Survive the Summer = 1 Month of HomeScouting Adventure Club.

Will there be merit badge counseling sessions like during Cyber Summer Camp?

Yes! We are committed to helping as many Scouts who need a counselor. Scouts are encouraged to find a local counselor however to have the best learning experience. 

Why don't I see my order under "My Orders"?

Some individuals are having issues with their order showing up under "My Orders." That's okay! We have received your order. This is most likely due to account creation after purchasing a package. Similar as to if you order a pizza using guest checkout, the next time to go and decide to create an account it doesn’t show previous orders.

Will my Scout be turning in the worksheets and/or tracking tools?

No. All worksheets and tracking tools are for your use to keep track of what's been completed. We recommend keeping them in case your unit leader wants to see what's been accomplished as proof of completion. 

How will my unit leader know what my Scout completed?

We will have reporting tool open at all times beginning October 1 where you can enter work done on different merit badges and other advancements. We will then send this to both parents and unit leaders. See here for an example of the email to unit leaders. We used this for all past HomeScouting programs, and it was positively received from unit leaders.
