Court of Honor Reminder

Posted on Mar 4 2021 - 1:12am

This is a reminder that we will have our Spring Court of Honor on Monday March 8th at UCUMC.  This will be held outside on the basketball court with all COVID precautions in place (masks, temperature checks, social distancing, etc.) to allow everyone to attend in person if they wish.  Families are encouraged to bring camp chairs or blankets for the ceremony so you have something to sit on.  We will still broadcast over the Zoom meeting for those that are not able to attend in person.

Merit Badge Academy Postponed

Posted on Feb 24 2021 - 7:20pm

Unfortunately, we have taken the decision to postpone this Saturday's Merit Badge Academy.  Once we have information on a reschedule date we will communicate it.

But fear not; Central Florida Council has several online merit badge classes available this month!  March 3 kicks off the second month of programs for 2021.  They are offering Chess Merit Badge, Public Health Merit Badge, and Mining in Society Merit Badge.  Counselors provide one session per week for 4 weeks, with Scouts reviewing and submitting their work remotely using online forms!  Resources, videos, and more are made available each week online...Scouts study at their pace and most complete their work by the end of the month!

You can register for these merit badges on the Council website here: https://scoutingevent.com/083-OnlineMB
