Scout Programs

All our scout badges are public prescheduled programs and virtual through the end of 2020. We will reassess the possibility of in-person programming in 2021 but plan on all badges being virtual unless we contact you about a change. Below are the badges currently being offered for the 2020–2021 school year.

Additional resources are available below. Subscribe to our educator e-newsletter to stay informed of educational opportunities for your scouts.
