The Mid-America Council will be offering Merit Badge programs ONLINE to Scouts. Click on the merit badge below for more information:
Here is a list of ideas along with Merit Badge suggestions for continuing Troop meetings and rank advancement during this time.
- Conduct virtual Patrol Leaders Council meetings via teleconference or web video conferencing. NOTE: Ensure to maintain two-deep leadership throughout the virtual meeting.
- Encourage Patrol Leaders to communicate digitally with their patrol members.
- Conduct online merit badge counselor meetings using web video conferencing tools such as Google Hangouts, Zoom, Skype, FreeConference or Facebook. (NOTE: Ensure to maintain two-deep leadership throughout the virtual meeting.) NOTE completing a worksheet and emailing it does not constitute a “virtual discussion”, rather use interactive video or phone conversations.
