- Online sessions will be offered ACCORDING TO THE SCHEDULE OUTLINED ABOVE for each program. Summer Sessions are handled differently from our standard online programs, so please pay attention to the schedule information for each month.
- Sessions will be presented by registered Merit Badge/program Counselors, and will be intended to inform/educate the Scout on the badge's topic. Scouts are expected to participate in each weekly session or view the recap video provided 24-hours after each session.
- Each week, Scouts will also be expected to complete an ONLINE WORK SUBMISSION for their badge; downloadable worksheets may be used for NOTE TAKING ONLY. Work submissions must be made through the weekly form for credit.
- Scouts progress will be tracked on an Online Blue Card, available to you after thw SECOND SESSION of the program. Special files can be downloaded from the same system for updating Scoutbook and Troopmaster, however, our Counselors cannot update individual Scout's Scoutbook accounts due to high volume of participation.
Once registered, Scouts will receive a link to log on; Scouts will use that link each day to access an hour of live instruction from a Merit Badge Counselor or other expert in the field.
Each badge session will be provided by a registered Merit Badge Counselor and feature guest presenters from various industries related to the topic.
***WE ARE LIMITED TO 300 PARTICIPANTS IN EACH CLASS!***
