NOTE: Virtual Merit Badge Academy is only open to Scouts from Pathway to Adventure Council


The Environmental Protection Agency, as part of a public awareness campaign to celebrate its first 50 years, has partnered with the Boy Scouts of America to create an award for members of troops, crews and ships. This new award will recognize youth who research and learn about the subjects of human health and the environment, as the EPA develops its vision for the next 50 years. The objective of the EPA award is to combine a variety of disciplines to challenge and educate youth; introduce them to the breadth of the EPA’s involvement in environmental protection and conservation; and encourage them to research, investigate, experiment, demonstrate, survey, and study air pollution, water pollution, solid and hazardous waste, and ocean dumping

This award is only available to be earned in 2021

Many badges offered through the Pathway to Adventure Council's Virtual Merit Badge Academy will support this effort.

Pathway to Adventure Council Scouts: $10/class

 

NOTE: Virtual Merit Badge Academy is only open to Scouts from Pathway to Adventure Council


Each scout who is registered will receive a Virtual Merit Badge Academy patch.  Note: Virtual Merit Badge Academy runs from February 20th until May 22nd - Patches will be mailed at the conclusion of the Academy.

 

Join certified Merit Badge Counselors in a virtual setting to earn badges while staying safely at home!

Each class is 2 hours long, many have prerequisites that must be completed before class (if not completed, Scouts can still participate but will earn a partial).  If a partial is earned, it will be the Scout’s responsibility to follow-up with a counselor to complete the badge.

Prerequisites are listed under Attachments (bottom right side of your screen, below the merit badge offerings)
 

If your Scout needs accommodations to be successful, please reach out to Colleen Leahy at ptacmba1@gmail.com.  We will work with you to understand your scout’s specific needs and develop a strategy to meet those needs.
 

Class options are listed on the right side of your screen. Click the register button for the badge you would like to register for. 


Make sure you are registering for the desired date and time (listed below each badge name)

 

Duties of Each Scout

  • Please review prerequisite assignments closely to be prepared for class expectations.  Note that some counselors are requesting that prerequisites be submitted prior to the session in order to make the most of the time spent in the virtual classroom.   
  • Any communications between a scout and a counselor must include a parent or other scout leader to comply with BSA Youth Protection policy. 
  • Scouts MUST attend in Class A Uniform (no troop t-shirts) and Be Prepared with pen/pencil, paper, merit badge booklets (if required), and any other items needed for your badge. 
  • Scouts MUST have their cameras turned on so that the counselor can see that they are actively participating in the class. Scouts with their cameras off will not be given credit for attending the class. 

 

Scouts will receive an email with the video conference link 24-48 hours before their scheduled session. Watch your junk filter!
