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 most requirements with many Merit Badges ending in completion. Others may require Scouts to complete some requirements on their own at home or with their units in the future. At the end of the week, you will receive an email detailing your advancement. You can then forward this information to your Scout Leader or Advancement person to input into your Scoutbook account. No 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.
