SPRING PROGRAM SUMMARY:
- Each month, we will offer 3-5 programs.
- Online sessions will be offered WEEKLY for each program. 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.
- Each week, Scouts/parents will have access to their Scout's records to track progress. This access will begin on the SECOND week of each program (to allow data entry time.)
- We will also work directly with Scoutmasters to provide them with access to important records and updates so they can be a resource for you and your Scout as you progress.
- At the end of each month, Counselors will host a "Workshop" for Scouts who have questions or need extra help. Scouts working to complete the Merit Badge in one-month (when possible) should take advantage of these Workshops.
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!***
