GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The Boy Scouts of America have not skipped a beat when it comes to the stay home, stay safe executive order.

Their Scouting BSA program is up and running, not just for scouts, but for everyone on their website free of charge.

Scouts can pick up more than fifty of their merit badges and try out a variety of projects.

Normally, every year the organization has their annual Building Character Celebration in person, where some of the hardest-working scouts are recognized for their accomplishments; however, this year's will be online only. Anyone interested in participating can watch it here on May 6 at 6 p.m.
