Saturday Merit Badge Classes
Merit badges are for 5th Grade Arrow of Light and 6-12th Grade Boy Scouts
Scouts will use the Museum’s resources, explore Exhibit Halls and conduct hands on experiments while working with experts and professionals in their fields. Our goal is for all Scouts to gain the greatest understanding possible of the badge subject upon completion of the class, and to help scouts complete as many requirements of the badge as possible.
HMNS offers the Archeology, Astronomy, Chemistry, Energy, Indian Lore, Insect Study, Geology, and Reptiles & Amphibians Study Merit Badges in one-day Saturday classes.
Scouts@HMNS has an open door policy - parents and Troop leaders are welcomed to stay and sit in on any class, but it is not required. Parents or leaders are required for all off-site field classes.
