Online Cub Scout Adventure Classes

In response to COVID-19, the Virginia Headwaters Council will be offering online Cub Scout Adventure Classes starting Monday, June 15, 2020, to any scout(s) involved in a Cub Scout program. We believe that this will help support our youth and their families in these programs as our local communities have suspended all school and/or other group programs with no more than fifty individuals present at one time.

Overall, we believe that these online cub scout adventure programs will make a great educational supplement to ongoing online efforts being made by our current public, private, and charter schools throughout our impacted region.

Additional Notes (Please Review)

  1. Each scout must register separately so we can track their daily progress and attendance. For any scout that is interested to be a participant, there is a minimal $10 cost per class to cover supplies for the online instruction and limited technology resource needs. This minimal cost will be paid by the scout or their unit leader at registration.
  2. Current youth protection guidelines (two-deep leadership and no one-on-one contact) will be followed by all staff under the Virginia Headwaters Council and its Cub Scout Adventure instructors at all times while working with youth and their families; more information can be found below "Important Excerpts from Advancement Guidelines".
  3. All Cub Scout Adventure classes are open to any scout(s) from any council(s) that are currently participating in a Cub Scout program; all times listed below are located in the eastern time zone of the United States of America.
  4. We strongly encourage and recommend that any scout(s) participating in these online classes receive verbal permission from their parents/guardians and their unit leader(s); more information (below) - "Virtual Merit Badge Guidelines"
  5. All live instruction will be provided by an online format called Zoom Webinars; an online portal provided by the Virginia Headwaters Council
  6. Lastly, please be aware that not all Cub Scout Adventure requirements will be completed by the end of the week; many of these adventures listed below have outdoor components that will not be able to be completed in an online setting, but all instructors will be providing various virtual field trip opportunities in the form of video segments to complete some of the more difficult requirements listed under each adventure.
