Virtual Merit Badge Opportunities
There are two merit badges being offered by the Chickasaw Council over videoconference – Public Safety and Coin Collecting. Public Safety is being taught by our own Mr. Barry Moore, and the orientation session is tomorrow, 3/28. Scouts need to call Mr. Issing at his home number to get approval to begin working on a new merit badge. The details and registration links are below:
Public Health Merit Badge
March 28 - Orientation

The Chickasaw Council is thrilled to begin offering virtual merit badges during the COVID-19 containment period!
We will be offering the Public Health merit badge over two Saturdays in April using the Zoom video-conferencing
platform. There is no cost to participate; however, all Scouts must have Scoutmaster approval to begin working on the badge.
