Cub Scout Badge Workshops

All badge workshops are by appointment for dens or packs. Open workshops are by pre-registration only. There are a limited number of spots available – please sign up early. Upon completion of the session, your Scout will have earned the badge described (actual badges awarded by your pack at a later date). Scouts also will be given a special Outdoor Adventure Center patch for their brag vests. Cost is $10 per Scout unless otherwise indicated and includes admission to the Outdoor Adventure Center.  Must have a minimum of eight Scouts to book a badge workshop.

Please submit the Scout Badge Workshop Application form to register. For more information, please contact us at 844-OAC-MDNR (844-622-6367) or
