Scouts can participate in many activities and events held throughout the council's geographic territory. Community organizations, nonprofits and government institutions often provide programs and activities for Scout units. Automotive Safety Patch Program: Safe Kids Buckle Up and
Chevrolet have teamed up with the Boy Scouts of America to teach Cub Scouts and
their parents and caregivers about safety in and around vehicles. These hands-on educational
activities are conducted by Safe Kids Coalitions and held at Chevrolet
dealerships designed to educate families with older children — ages 7 to 10 —
about being safe inside and outside of moving and parked vehicles. After the
Scouts successfully complete all of the educational stations, they are
presented with their Automotive Safety Patch. To schedule the program for your unit, contact Cathy at 314-612-5770 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The program is free and space is limited. For more information, click here.
