February 23rd War Eagle Merit Badge Clinic -- Please tell your Scouts!

Posted on Nov 16 2018 - 10:34am

Hello from Troop 631 in College Park!  On Saturday, February 23, 2019 we will be holding a Merit Badge Clinic at the Woodward Academy Middle School. 17 Merit Badge Classes will be offered (of which 8 are Eagle-required merit badges), and we are offering some “hard to find” classes, like American Heritage, Art, Aviation, Chemistry, Digital Technology, and Public Speaking.  And, of course, lunch is included.

As of today, space is still available in all 17 classes, but that could change quickly.  Would you please inform your Scouts of this excellent advancement opportunity?

To sign-up for Classes, please click on www.meritbadge.info, then Sign On as a user. Once logged in, click on the “Enter Registration System” button, then scroll down the page to find the February 23rd War Eagle Merit Badge Clinic. The click on the “Sign Up” button on the right hand side of the Event Listing, and follow the instructions. There are 5 full-day classes (designated as Session A), 6 Morning-only classes (Session B), and 6 Afternoon-only classes (Session C).

Please see the attached Flyer for additional information on the Clinic, as well as a full class listing with pre-requisites.

Thanks for all you do for your Scouts, and we look forward to seeing you at the War Eagle Merit Badge Clinic on February 23rd!

Yours, Kendra Richardson and Shawn Smith, Troop 631 War Eagle Merit Badge Clinic Coordinators

Cub Scout Adventure Resources ... Get Out, Get Active!

Posted on Nov 12 2018 - 6:48pm

... if you run Den and Pack meetings like school time, in a classroom or around a table, you're missing out on the fun and adventure -- yes, adventure -- of Cub Scout adventures that are built into the Cub Scout handbooks and adventure plans.  Most of these Cub Scout Adventures are better and more easily done at Weekend Events like campouts or day hikes ending with an evening campfire ... and by families!

For places to go and things to do, see our Month by Month Activity Guide for easy options to set up your Family Fun Program every month, including dozens and dozens of other great places to go around Atlanta.  For how to deliver your Cub Scouts' advancement plan, see these Cub Scout Adventures pages, with Leader Guide materials, especially the "Streamlined" plans.
