The BSA is putting Scouting on the map!
That's right! The BSA is putting Scouting on the map all acros the nation. The Boy Scouts of America will have its own joining Web page with information on Scouting, plus an actual Google map application that will help potential Scouts and their parents find, pack, troops, and crews in their communities.
BeAScout allows people interested in a particular unit to email questions to the unit leaders. For instance, say a potential Scout parent want to know, "What night does your den meet?"
Unit Leaders will be able to update their unit's Google pin (the bubble you see on Google maps) through MyScouting. They can add their unit meeting time, location, phone number, unit website address, if they have one, as well as contact information.
