Indian Lore Merit Badge

Burpee is offering Virtual Merit Badges.

In this class, scouts will earn their Indian Lore Merit Badge.

Scouts will earn this Badge by spending time in the Museum’s Native American exhibits and interacting virtually with artifacts from the collection.  They will learn about Native Americans of our area from a registered Boy Scout Indian Lore Merit Badge Counselor. Spend time in a recreated wigwam, learn how members of tribes historically provided food, shelter, and clothing, and make a leather craft to learn Native American activities and traditions.

Pre-registration & pre-payment are required to attend.
