Activity Information

American Labor; 9am - Noon

Audience: Youth

You might be surprised to learn that the Boston Massacre in 1770 began as a labor dispute between an off-duty British soldier seeking a job to supplement his wage and a Colonial rope make who represented having to complete with the soldier for scarce employment opportunities.  Yet this event ignited a long fuse leading to the American Revolution, independence, and individual rights.

These issues are the core of the American Labor movement.

 This merit badge is offered in the morning only.

Class size is limited to 25 Scouts.

Dentistry; 9am - Noon

Audience: Youth

Since the earliest people got their first teeth, humans have suffered mightily from gum disease and tooth decay.  Treating these dental problems often caused more pain than the disease itself, so it is no wonder that people feared - and still fear - the tooth-puller.

Dental treatment has evolved rapidly in the past century.  We can be glad that the days of the tooth worm are behind us!

This merit badge is offered in the morning only.

Digital Technology; 1 - 4:30pm

Audience: Youth

The new Digital Technology merit badge is designed to show the close relationship between humans and the technical world surrounding us.  The fleur-de-lis in the center of the badge represents the Scout who, acting as the "brain" of a typical computing device, interfaces with the digital technology world through the means that those electronic devices can understand.  As we increasingly use digital technology in our everyday world, this relationship extends from Scout to the digital devices.

This merit badge is offered in the afternoon only.
