Online Merit Badge Opportunities from National Council

Work on merit badges from the comfort of your home! In an effort to help support Scouts and families as our communities are practicing social distancing, National Capital Area Council will be offering Merit Badge programs ONLINE!

These programs make a great supplement to ongoing online schooling efforts. They also help Troops, Crews, and Ships continue their program while avoiding in-person activities. For all badges, Scouts are encouraged to earn (or renew) their Cyber Chip ahead of time. 

These sessions are open to ALL Scouts in ALL Councils, nationwide!

All Scouts. Please complete BSA Cyber Chip.

We remind all scout and parents of the importance for all scout to be safe when online whether interacting with people online whether it is a class, merit badge or just communicating with others. Please download and complete the cyber chip workbook with your parents. Email your completed  pdf workbooks to Couselor@troop61.com. Use "Cyber Chip for (Scouts Name)" in the subject line when you email the completed workbook.

Coronavirus:

Three Harbors Council has communicated that all Scout units (Including Boyscout Troops) should not hold in person meetings, activities or outings during the public health emergency. They have encouraged us to consider ways to continue our Scouting programs via virtual meetings including conference calls and video conferencing. We also remind scouts and parents there are many Scouting activities that can happen at home. Visit Three Harbor Council for more updates.

 

IMPORTANT REMINDER: To Scouts and Parents. Scouts should not communicate to Scout Leaders individually. Scouts must include their Parent or another adult leader in all emails, texts, phone calls or communication of any kind.

Registration Scholarships

 

The cost of annual BSA registration for next year is increasing due to new costs at the national level. We will supply details in the next eBuggle. To help offset this expected cost increase the Troop committee voted to provide an Event Scholarship of $20 per scout to be applied, $10 per event, to any outing or campout held next year starting with Winter Camp.  Again, more details coming next week.
