Badge Labs

(Girl Scouts + Cub Scouts)

Current Scout badge requirements are not designed to be earned in an hour or even a day. The Curiosity Path has designed their badge labs to best assist Scout leaders in helping their Scouts to reach their badge goals.

These activities support current Cub Scout and Girl Scout badges. Each Scout will receive an achievement card to share with leaders, listing which badge requirements were fulfilled. Most badges cannot be fully completed during a session.

Leaders, please carefully read badge descriptions in the handbooks to understand which requirements will be covered.

Students do NOT need to be registered Scouts to reserve Badge Lab classes - activities are open to all.

A minimum of 8 registrations must be received for a class to be held.

Cost: Classes cost $8.00 per Scout. There is no charge for adults. Troops and dens are expected to maintain adult/Scout ratios for their rank/level.

Travel: $0.50 per mile surcharge added to cost if further than 40 miles round trip from The Curiosity Path.
