Many homeschooling parents find that the experiences and activities offered by scouting groups fit right in with their homeschooling goals. Opportunities are available for local youth to join in with scouts in the Bloomington-Normal area. In some instances groups are available specifically for homeschool students. In other instances, homeschool students choose to join groups with their peers in private or public schools. Contact the following organizations if you would like to participate.

Boy Scouts

Boy Scouts residing in the Bloomington-Normal area are able to participate with the W.D. Boyce Council as part of the Crossroads District. Numerous troops are available in the local area for boys to join. Many Pack 777 Cub Scouts continue to partner with Boy Scout Troop 777 out of Cornerstone Christian Academy.

Girl Scouts

For over 95 years, Girl Scouting has offered opportunities for girls all over the world to build character and skills while developing courage and confidence to make the world around them a better place. While many homeschool girls have participated as "Juliettes", some activities are more enjoyable with a troop. Visit Central Illinois Girl Scouts in order to find a troop that will meet your Girl Scouting needs.
