Scouts BSA At Home

We will be adding more classes as they become available, please keep checking in to see what is new!

All Merit Badges are $5 each and will be done via Zoom meetings with the instructor at the listed time. All times are  listed as Eastern Time. The Zoom invitiations will be sent out the Saturday or Sunday before the class begins. This will also include the email address of your instructor in the CC field. There will be some extra homework needed to be done between the courses, and some merit badge may require you to work on projects before or after the class.

 The Daniel Boone Council, BSA will not be issuing any refunds for this event. Scouts can get a credit when switching classes, up to 7 days before the class start date.

You will need to create an account to register. This system is the same one used for summer camp, so it might be easier for your unit to register as a whole, the same way they would for summer camp, but it is not required. 

2020 Virtual Merit Badge Commemorative Patch only $6

 

Merit Badge Books (Optional):

If you'd like to order a merit badge book for your virtual class, please visit your local scout shop or order via email here.

 

Blue Cards (After the Class):

To print blue cards, or completion certificates please follow these easy steps. It will take a week or more after the completion of the meetings for items to be entered into the system, please give the instructors adequate time to complete this process. 

 

How to Demonstrate virtually?:

All requirments that state "Demonstrate" will require the scouts to complete the task out side of the virtual classes. This could be completed with videos of the scout completing it, or other trained professionals signing off that the scout completed the requirment as it is written.
