Boy Scouts of America Merit Badge Classes
Boy Scout Merit Badge Classes have returned to Bass Pro Shops! A summer staple, merit badge classes will take place throughout the month of September at your Columbia, MO Bass Pro Shops.
Founded in 1910, the Boy Scouts have nearly 3 million youth members and over 1 million adult volunteers. The BSA goal is to train youth in responsible citizenship, character development, and self-reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities and educational programs.
Through the merit badge program, Scouts learn about sports, crafts, science, trades, business, and future careers. Bass Pro Shops will offer two merit badge classes: Fishing and Rifle Shooting. Scouts learn the fundamentals of each activity as well as how to develop their skills while learning safe techniques.
Classes are scheduled as follows, from 6-8 pm:
Tuesday, September 3: Fishing
Thursday, September 5: Rifle Shooting
Tuesday, September 10: Rifle Shooting
Thursday, September 12: Fishing
Tuesday, September 17: Fishing
Thursday, September 19: Rifle Shooting
Tuesday, September 24: Rifle Shooting
Thursday, September 26: Fishing
Classes are administered by BSA-approved members of our Hunting and Fishing Departments. There is a practical application component of each class, following the classroom session, where Scouts demonstrate their proficiency in the subject matter. Practical skills session times and dates will be released as soon as possible.
