SCOUTMASTER BUCKY ONLINE MERIT BADGE CLASS OPPORTUNITIES


Please note that online classes are marked with a gold border and are clearly marked as such
All other opportunities are in-person events
COVID-19 STATEMENT from Scoutmaster Bucky Online:

We are doing everything we can to accommodate the high demand for online opportunities due to our Scouting Community's needs.  While we try to offer to all who are interested, we can not even scratch the surface of the current demand.  As we have done since we started offering online merit badges in 2013, we are maintaing the same high level of standards practices, policies, ethics, integirty, and expectations. We will continue to do what we can to offer engaging, interactive, personalized, challenging, merit badge opportunities as we always have.

Scoutmaster Bucky Online:

Scoutmaster Bucky Online Merit Badge classes are NOT, and have never been, pencil whipped merit badges, Scouts are expected and MUST prepare for the classes, utilizting the Class Preparation Pages as a guide.

It is recommended to utilize a Scoutmater Bucky Merit Badge Workbook for the merit badge  to organize and take notes. 

Please note, No merit badge counselor anywhere can require that a merit badge workbook is completed as a part of the merit badge process.  This would be adding to the requirements of a merit badge and is strictly prohibited in the Guide to Advancement.
Merit Badge Workbooks are not a measure of whether a Scout has completed any merit badge or requirement, however, Scouts will find they are a good tool to utilize for organizational and reference purposes.

WOOD BADGE - FALL 2020
C1-250-20-2



Wood Badge is a world-class leadership development program intended for all Scout leaders. Reflecting the best of nearly a century of Scouting experience, Wood Badge draws upon the most current leadership models used by corporate America, academic circles and successful organizations throughout the country.

Wood Badge training was begun by Baden Powell in 1919 as a way to insure that the leaders of Scout troops were properly trained. Since then Wood Badge has been held worldwide, providing advanced leadership training to thousands of Scout leaders.


Wood Badge builds upon the best traditions and experiences of the Boy Scouts of America and also draws from a wide range of courses within and beyond the bounds of Scouting to present the latest in leadership theory and team development.

By taking Wood Badge, Scouters will acquire valuable tools such as listening, communicating, conflict management, project planning and leading change. Participants will better learn to understand and appreciate diversity and differences in our society. They will learn skills that will make them a better Scout leader. Units with trained leaders are able to deliver an improved program and a more meaningful experience for the youth Scouting serves.

By attending Wood Badge, the participants will internalize the 5 themes of Wood Badge: Living the Values, Growing, Connecting, Guiding, Empowering. Apply the skills learned from your participation as a member of a successful working team to your Scouting position as well as your professional life. Revitalize your commitment to youth by sharing in an overall inspirational experience that helps provide Scouting with the leadership it needs to accomplish its mission on an ongoing basis

Journey to Excellence requirements emphasize the need to have at least one unit leader Wood Badge trained.  This is your opportunity to become Wood Badge trained.

 

Sign up now for the  2020 Fall Wood Badge Course.  You must attend both scheduled weekends of the course (two weekends).
 

Cost is $250.  fee covers all meals & course materials.

A $100 deposit is required with the balance due by July 1, 2020.

Excerpt from 1918 electricity merit badge pamphlet

 

"There is only one rule in the world, and it applies to all professions, and that is that you are expected to 'make good'.  No excuses are allowed in this school of life, and the only way to make good is to keep faith.  This the reason I like the idea of the Boy Scouts - because of their secure notion of being responsible to society.  They are responsible to the people who live around them - to help maintain the standards of order and fidelity upon which the community depends."


(signed)     Woodrow Wilson

President of the United States of America
