For homeschoolers, Scouting allows them to work with other kids and learn leadership skills they may not otherwise have the opportunity to learn and practice. They learn to plan projects, activities, and take active roles in events.
Across the country Families use the age-appropriate Scouting programs for either pack, troop, crew or ship to provide curriculum enrichment for their home-educated children.
The family members and scouts all work to achieve the purposes of Scouting:
For example; see our list of Community Scouting Partners. Many of these groups provide discounted access and unique learning experience for local Scouting groups and families.
In a traditional educational setting, Scouting is an extracurricular activity, but many home-schoolers look at Scouting as an integral part of school. Some families even see Scouting as a framework on which to build their own curriculum.
Over the years many homeschool families have participated in scouting with local community Cub packs and Scouts BSA Troops. You can easily find a welcoming Scout unit near your home at BeAScout.org.
Or if you are interested in organizing a new Cub pack or Scouts BSA troop own your own, then feel free to contact us for assistance.
