Programs for Boy Scouts
Boy Scout Merit Badge
$85. Ages 10-18.

This is a weekend-long course, please be available for the entire weekend. Typically the course is run Saturday 9AM - 5PM and Sunday 12PM - 4PM, however these times may change at the discretion of the instructor (via email).
This fun, two-day program is filled with sailing and seamanship, allowing scouts to earn the merit badge blue card. Under the close supervision of Boy Scout troop leaders and U.S. Sailing Certified Instructors, scouts will endeavor in land-based activities, and learn to sail Xcite sailboats, in order to fulfill the requirements for their merit badge.
The BSA requirements for the badge can be found here.

Customize a Program for your Troop
Want to bring your whole troop for the merit badge? Or maybe enable your troop to be able to sail over to Hart-Miller Island to camp overnight? There are numerous possibilities, please contact the Director to set something up. Camping options are usually restricted to scouts who have already learned to sail either through BCSC's camps or the merit badge program.
