Scout Badges

Scouts – Looking for Somewhere Fun to Work on Your Badge Program?

WBS offers programs to meet the requirements for Boy Scout and Girl Scout Badges.  Programs are available daily between the hours of 10:00 am – 3:00 pm, but must be scheduled in advance. 

The minimum charge is $60.00 which covers up to 10 Scouts or participants.  For additional Scouts or participants add $6.00 per child.  Payment in full is required upon making the registration.  Our calendar fills quickly and space is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Cub Scouts can earn:
Tiger:  Earn ½ of a “Tiger Track Bead” or complete Achievement 5
Wolf:  Complete Elective 13 or Achievement 7
Bear:  Complete Achievement 5 or 6
Webelos:  Earn Naturalist Badge or the “Forester” Badge

Girl Scouts:
We are presently working fom the old Badge book, offering:
Brownies:  Earn Animals Badge, Watching Wildlife Badge or Eco Explorer Badge
Juniors:  Earn Your Outdoor Surroundings Badge, Plants and Animals Badge or Earth Connection Badge
Senior/Cadet:  Earn All About Birds Internet Project, Pet Interest Project or Wildlife Interest Project

We hope to have new badge programs and activities to support the new Girl Scout Journeys and Badges available in September 2013

WBS does not provide the actual patches for any of the badge programs.  We will cover the requirements necessary in order to earn the specific badge for which you have scheduled.

A WBS Naturalist will spend approximately 20-40 minutes with the group and then let the Scout Leader guide Scouts through any activities or tasks that are still needed to complete their badge on their own.  Generally a total of about 90 minutes is needed onsite to complete required tasks.

To schedule a Badge Program call 636-225-4390 extension 0.
