Welcome to HomeScouting.org
HomeScouting was created by the Buckeye Council, Boy Scouts of America in Canton, OH. HomeScouting is designed to offer virtual programs across the country and around the world. In March 2020, HomeScouting launched its six-week Spring BreakOut Program and evolved to serve over 14,000 youth and their families in all 50 states and across the world in 5 countries.
Expanding on our virtual programs like HomeScouting’s Spring BreakOut Program, Buckeye Council, Boy Scouts of America created Cyber Summer Camp that launched on June 8 to deliver an exciting STEM-based adventure featuring live webinars with NASA engineers. The next evolution of HomeScouting was Survive the Summer where we put the Outing back in Scouting! Then in the fall, we launched the HomeScouting Adventure Club! This is a monthly subscription that features fun, family activities, and advancement. In December 2020, we went to snowy Alaska to visit with Matthew Failor, Iditarod Racer & Eagle Scout with Cyber Sled Race! Exactly 365 days after HomeScouting launched its original Spring BreakOut program, we released a new and improved Spring BreakOut program where we Zoomed Out and shut down devices and got outside!
This summer, Cyber Summer Camp returned with marine biologists as participants went Below the Surface to study oceans, sharks, and other aquatic ecosystems. The HomeScouting Adventure Club continues and you're invited to continue your adventure of Scouting at home and in your backyard with our monthly subscription program.
Finally, HomeScouting.org also serves as Buckeye Council's new Scout experience. All Buckeye Council Scouts are invited to take part in a free rocket academy, register for Family Adventure Camps, find resources, and more!
Begin your adventure today by exploring any of our programs below!
