FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can families from other councils join Spring BreakOut?
Yes! Spring BreakOut is free 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.
Will there be merit badge counseling sessions for the Exploration Merit Badge?
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.
I am really enjoying the HomeScouting Adventure Club, 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 subscription and create an account, you'll have access to that month's content and future
months as they release.
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 the conclusion of the 4 weeks 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 use this for all HomeScouting programs, and it is positively received from unit leaders.
