Bald Head Island Merit Badge Program (4/24/2021)
Date: April 24 - April 24 | Time: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
We are excited to partner again with the Bald Head Island Conservancy to offer a merit badge program where Scouts will take the Environmental Science merit badge as a one day event.
With generous donors agreeing to underwrite much of the cost of this program to ensure this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is available to as many Scouts as possible. The cost of the program is $35.00 which includes ferry tickets and all merit badge program supplies. Scouts will be exploring the island and will have the opportunity to visit the beach. Space is limited to 14 Scouts with a minimum requirement of 10. Register now to secure your spot for this class. Please bring a bagged lunch.
Scouts will need to complete requirements 2 and 6 outside of class. If a Scout has completed them beforehand, let the counselor know and it will be reflected on the blue card.
We must have 2 leaders volunteer to chaperone this event and leaders will be responsible for the Scouts while on the island. If you are interested as a Leader, please contact Martin Clemmer by email at Martin.Clemmer@scouting.org. The ferry ticket is covered for the 2 approved adult volunteers.
If any additional parents wish to come to BHI for the day, they will need to arrange their own on-island transportation for the day (and rent a cart from Cary Cart Company if they would like) as we will only have room for the 14 scouts + 2 chaperones in our carts. They’ll also need to purchase their own ferry tickets.
