Where are Scouts Going this Summer?
Perhaps the better question would’ve been where are Scouts not going this summer?
Earlier today on our Facebook page, I asked where packs, troops, teams, and crews are headed for their summer adventures. More than 175 responses later, the answer is “far and wide.”
There’s Venturing Crew 505′s trip to Alaska’s Denali National Park, several units visiting the Florida Sea Base, a Transatlantic Council visit to the U.K., and pretty much everywhere in between.
I’ve compiled it all in an interactive, searchable Google map. You can click each marker to see which Scout unit is visiting that location. You can zoom in close. And you can uncheck Boy Scouts and Venturers if, for example, you’re only interested in seeing Cub Scout packs. Speaking of, the blue markers indicate Cub Scout packs, green markers represent Venturing crews, and red markers are for Boy Scout troops.
Several units are headed to Philmont, Northern Tier, Sea Base, and the Summit Bechtel Reserve, so I spread those markers out a little to make every submission visible.
Want to put your unit’s summer adventure on the map? It’s not too late. Simply leave a comment with the your unit number, the place you’re visiting, and the city and state (or country) of that location (to make it easier for me to find). For privacy purposes, don’t include the dates you’ll be there.
We’re at 179 markers at the time of this writing. Let’s fill up the map even more!
