Spring Merit Badge Days at Boxwell

Exciting news as we have created another opportunity for Scouts BSA to advance in the program. Merit Badge Days was a huge success in 2020 and due to Covid-19, we feel that this would be the best option to stay safe during these times. This merit badge day will replace the 2021 Spring Jamboree at camp Arrowhead, On April 10 and April 11 Boxwell Reservation we will be hosting a Merit Badge Day(s) as we did before. Same concept, same style but this time we are offering over 15 UNIQUE Merit Badge Classes, our Winchester Marksman Program, Adult Training opportunities and the opportunity to learn the history of Boxwell Reservation.
