Scouts BSA At Home 2021
We will be adding more classes as they become available, please keep checking in to see what is new!
All Merit Badges are $10 each and will be done via Zoom meetings with the instructor at the listed time. These classes are designed and are being hosted for all registered Scouts BSA youth from all councils, across the nation and abroad. No matter which council you are registered, you are invited to join us! All times are listed as Eastern Time. The Zoom invitiations will be sent out the weekend before the class begins. This will also include the email address of your instructor. 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. Please carefully select your times. ALL Changes must be made by following these steps 7 days before the class starts.
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.
Here is how to update your classes. LINK
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 requirements 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.
Quality of Classes
We are very excited to be offering virtual merit badges to scouts all over the world. We have seen scouts from ALL 50 states, Puerto Rico, DC, Germany, and The Philippines particiapate in our classes in 2020. This is because we are proud that we have been able to find instructors that are leaders in their industry and scouts have been able to learn about new and unique career fields. We have seen an average class size between 20 and 25 scouts.
Each section can be "Collapsed." Please expand any previous Week # to see any classes that week.
