Sign ups for the class were offered at the Troop meeting on Feb 28th. If you did not have a chance to sign up, but would like to take the class, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can add you to the class roster.
Our first class will be on Monday, March 28 at 6:30 PM at the Scout House.
Please see the class information below so you know when we will be meeting, what to bring, what is expected of you, and when each of the assignments are due. Please note that the assignments are DUE on the class date they are listed under. There is work to be done before the first class meeting, so be prepared to start work on this badge immediately. This is not a difficult merit badge to earn, but it does require some planning and staying on schedule in order to complete the work.
I look forward to meeting everyone at the first class session. You may contact me anytime with questions, via email or phone, and I’ll do my best to answer them.
