Virtual Pets Merit Badge

 

What: In this class scouts will learn about different kinds of pets. We will look into the process of taking care of a pet and what methods differ from pet to pet. Scouts will have the opportunity to share about their own pets and their experience taking care of them. Scouts will leave the class with the knowledge of what makes a good pet and what they can do to be good pet owners.

 Meet your Counselor - Patrick Afonso Is the manager of the East Bay Scout Shop. He is a big fan of animals; over the years he has owned a number of different kinds pets.

      

WHO: Open to all Scouts BSA members

HOW:  This Merit Badge will be taught in a virtual classroom. The class has a capacity of 15 Scouts. Small classroom size provides all students with the opportunity to share and interact with the counselors and other Scouts. Scouts should be prepared to be challenged and to join the conversation! Participants who do not engage with the class may not receive credit for the badge. Scouts must be prompt for all badge sessions. Late participants may not receive credit for all requirements. Scouts must use a device with video to access this class.

Before beginning work on any merit badge, scouts are to have a discussion with their unit leader regarding the specific badge and counselor.

WHEN: This class will be held virtually over two sessions:

June 12, 2020 3:00PM-4:00PM

June 13, 2020 3:00PM-4:00PM

Scouts must attend both sessions to complete the offered requirements.

After registering, Scouts will receive a link and login information via email the day class is scheduled. Scouts will also receive instructor details that can be used to connect to the counselor on Scoutbook. This assures that completed requirements are easily recorded. 

PREREQUISITES:  Own and take care of a pet for at least four months.

Scouts should plan on completing requirement #3.  Read a book or pamphlet about your kind of pet. (Articles online will also count)
