The History Center offers great ways that Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts can earn badges while learning about our world and their place in it.
Boy Scouts Citizenship Series
Each spring and fall the History Center offers a three-part series to facilitate Boy Scouts in earning their required Citizenship merit badge. Our spring 2016 classes take place on these Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Citizenship of the Community, January 9
Learn your rights, duties, and obligations and how you can demonstrate good citizenship.
Citizenship of the Nation, February 13
Learn about the three branches of government and how they work together to maintain the rights and freedoms of every American.
Citizenship of the World, March 12
Discover how someone becomes a U.S. citizen, and learn the rights, duties, and obligations of U.S. citizens and the citizens of other countries.
You may register for the series or for single programs. The series is $75 per scout and $25 per adult; single programs are $30 per scout and $10 per adult. For both, one adult per 6 scouts is free. Scouts who are 14 and younger must be accompanied by an adult.
