If anyone is confused about how the personal at-home badges work, or needs ideas, here are the links to the helping documents from Scouts Canada.
The steps are:
1. Choose one badge topic that your child is interested in.
2. Decide on three (3) adventure activities that your child can do within that topic area.
3. Do the adventures. Email us when you are done to schedule time for your child to share with the group.
4. Child can bring in drawings, sentences, photos, or the actual things they made, to share with Scouters and The Group as evidence of their hard work.
**NOTE: very shy children do NOT have to speak in front of everyone. Please let us know if your child faces any challenges with that and we can accommodate.**
