Virtual Adventures

In an effort to help support Scouts and families as our communities suspend school and other group programs in response to COVID-19, the Bay Area Council will be offering programs ONLINE. New classes & events will be added as volunteers become available. 

Once registered, Scouts will receive a link to log on. Each class/event will be provided by a registered Merit Badge Counselor. Scouts may have "homework" to complete.
