“It is all about stepping outside your comfort zone, trying something you wouldn't normally be interested in, taking the lead in something that scares you and unlocking hidden talents along the way,” said Karen Brugnoli, cub scout leader. 

“These children have achieved these awards while having to work independently, meeting via zoom sessions and not face to face which makes it even more of an achievement.
