After reaching out to the wonderful volunteer leaders of the Oak Tree District, here are some of the creative way they are making the best of our current ongoing “stay at home” situation to keep Scouting relevant and fun.
Sara, a Bear Den Leader from Pack 18 has put together BALOO The Builder kits for her Bear Cub Scouts to come pick up off her front porch. They can then take the kit home and do the project at home. Once done they check in online or send a text with a picture. How cool is that!
Pack 60 in Kerrville kept it simple and just did a simple Facebook live Pack meeting on the Pack’s Facebook page. Keep it simple, make it fun!
Pack 109 took a page from Pack 60 and held their last Pack meeting online using Goggle Meets. The only “fun” problem was keeping the boys from not hitting the mute button and trying not to laugh at all the funny faces the Scouts kept making at each other. Sometimes you just have to be silly!
The Webelos of Pack 102 in Boerne are taking advantage of all the resources the Council has to offer online. Way to take advantage of the resources that are all around you!
Back up in Kerrville, Pack 1205 will take advantage of ZOOM the online meeting app and hold their next Pack meeting online for free if they keep it under 40 minutes. Way to go 1205!
The Cub Scout Roundtable Commissioner for Oak Tree is working with the American Heart Association to try and set up an online CPR class for anyone who wants to participate. Once we can all meet face to face, she will set up a meeting to go through the final process of working with the actual CPR test mannequin. I almost said CPR test dummy, but I did not want anyone to think I was talking about Ted their current DE.
There are so many was we can all get creative in our current situation. It is a simple matter of using the technology we have combined with our creativity and our passion for Scouting. Please visit our Council resource Page for all Scouting at Home ideas.
