Online Merit Badge-December Online Sessions
December 5, Schedule (Limited Classes Left)
December 5, In-Person at Camp Bud Schiele (In-Council Scouts Only)
Sign Up Starts November 6, at 6:00 p.m.
Each session will consist of one hour of instruction each day for four consecutive days (Monday – Thursday). The scout(s) should receive a link to log into their class the Friday evening prior to their first class but no less than 24 hours before the start of the class.
Scouts will use these links each day to receive live instruction from a merit badge counselor and guest presenters related to those important topics. Scouts will have various requirements to complete each day before the next day’s classes; instruction will end on Thursday of each week.
The fee will be $15 a class to cover cost on the online instruction and limited technology resource needs.
Current youth protection guidelines (two - deep leadership and no one-on-one contact) will be followed by all staff under the Piedmont Council, B.S.A. and its merit badge counselors at all times while working with youth and their families; more information can be found below: "Important Excerpts from Advancement Guidelines".
