Bald Head Island Merit Badge Program
Date: December 7 - December 8 | Time: 8:30 am - 2:00 pm
We are excited to partner again with the Bald Head Island Conservancy to offer a merit badge program which includes an overnight stay at the BHIC dormitory. Scouts will complete requirements to earn the Soil & Water Conservation merit badge and the Astronomy merit badge.
A generous donor has agreed 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 $40.00 which includes ferry tickets, meals, overnight accommodations, 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 20 Scouts with a minimum requirement of 10. Register now to secure your spot for this class.
There are 2 Scout Leader spaces available, but the Leaders will be responsible for the Scouts while on the island. The cost for a leader is $10.00. If you are interested as a Leader, please contact Martin Clemmer by email at Martin.Clemmer@scouting.org. This also includes ferry tickets, meals, and overnight accommodations for leaders.
