Some Girl Scout councils are fortunate enough to be in the line of the path of the Aug. 21 solar eclipse and have their scouts still be on summer vacation.
Unfortunately we don’t live in an area where we will see the full solar eclipse, but that doesn’t mean we can’t share in the excitement. I remember the chatter about Haley’s comet (Yes, I’m dating myself!) when I was a 6th grader.
Have Cub Scout or Boy Scout siblings? The Boy Scouts also have a patch program.
From Boy Scouts USA: a resource list of eclipse-related activities.
If you’re viewing the eclipse, even a partial one, invest in eclipse glasses and save your eyes!!
Enjoy this time with your scouts! We won’t have another chance to view a full solar eclipse for seven years!
