NOTE: We are starting to see the end of the tunnel regarding Covid-19 restrictions on scout activities. Some activities listed here may remain virtual but many are resuming as in-person events. Check details on fliers and follow the most current San Diego-Imperial Council communications on this topic on the council home page.
Join in BSA’s Summer of Service! From small random acts of kindness to larger community-wide projects, there are many ways to give back this summer! As a family, as a unit, or as part of a council activity, there are many ways to get involved in the BSA’s Summer of Service. Check out in-council opportunities below or find ideas that are right for you at Summer of Service.
The Summer of Service webpage has a great FAQ page as well as a resource page for unit leaders. Don't forget to log your project’s service hours in the Summer of Service portal. Also, log your scouts’ service hours in Internet Advancement (how to log service).
Tell us about your projects too!! Email the Activities and Civil Service team your pictures and details and we’ll do our best to highlight projects from around the Council in the Scouting 360 newsletter. Doing something really big? Let us know beforehand!
