Online Merit Badge Classes

As we continue to provide advancement opportunities to Scouts, here are this week’s online Merit Badge classes. These classes will give Scouts a chance to continue working on the Scouting curriculum, achieve advancements towards their Scouting goals, and connect with other Scouts all over the country!

Throughout each class, Scouts will fulfill many requirements during the online sessions. Scouts may have some requirements to complete on their own at home or with their units at a later date. Within 2 weeks after completion of the session, you will receive a digital blue card via email detailing your advancement. You can then forward this information to your Scout Leader or Advancement person to input into your Scoutbook account. No hard copy blue card will be issued.

Please remember that any electronic communication involving a youth member must adhere to BSA’s “two deep” leadership policies so youth sending emails or texts should cc their parent or another adult.

These programs are free and almost limitless (200+ attendance cap), they are open to anyone. The experts will share their personal and professional story, their background, and a little about what it’s like to work in their field. The virtual classroom manager will take chat questions from the audience and the guest speaker will answer the questions.
