Horsemanship Merit Badge - 2 of 2 @ Misty River Equestrian Center | Independence | Missouri | United States

Horsemanship Merit Badge

Misty River Equestrian Center has a Horsemanship merit badge program. This is located 12 minutes from Landahl Park, where we are having our March campout. This program takes three and a half hours and covers most of the merit badge. We will have a classroom session on March 22 to cover additional requirements. Both sessions are necessary to complete the merit badge.

 

We had several scouts do the Horsemanship merit badge at Misty River Equestrian Center two years ago. It was a great program, from knowledgeable, friendly and patient staff to gentle horses to good facilities to good gear to a reasonably convenient location. We definitely recommend this program.

 

We have booked the afternoon session, which is from 1 PM to 4:30 PM. There are only 12 spots available. First come, first served. If you want to take this rare merit badge, sign up soon!

Scouts will need to print a waiver and have their parents sign it to participate in the program.

Scouts are required to wear long pants and shoes with heels – no sneakers of sandals of any kind. Helmets will be provided. If gloves are worn, they must have a leather palm.

Welding Merit Badge - 2 of 2 @ Sheet Metal Workers Local Union 2 Training Center | Raytown | Missouri | United States

Welding Merit Badge

The Welding merit badge will be taught in two parts. Both sessions are necessary to complete the merit badge. The first session will be a classroom portion to cover what cannot be covered in the second session. This will be held at a date to be determined.

The second session of the Welding merit badge will be taught by Jason Ferguson at the Sheet Metal Workers Local Union 2 Training Center on April 1. Mr. Ferguson taught the Metalwork merit badge to a group of Troop 10 scouts and did an outstanding job. This is what he does for a living, so he is a true expert in both the subject and in teaching. Jason was great with the scouts and scouters.

Scouts of any rank may participate in this merit badge program.

This is a Class B event.
