HMNS brings the Summer Scout Academy’s most popular classes to Sugar Land. Merit badges for Boy Scouts, activity badges for Webelos, and Girl Scout Junior badges are offered this summer in weeklong classes right in your neighborhood.

Each class meets from 9:30 AM – 2:30 PM, Monday through Friday at the Houston Museum of Natural Science in Sugar Land. Cost is $195 members / $225 non-members.

Classes are targeted to fulfill 100% of the requirements for all badges. Merit Badge classes are taught by counselors registered with BSA.
