I might not have made my statement about merit badge classes clear.
These are done at a district level, usually in response to a
request. They are done at troop meeting locations on the host's
meeting night, but NOT as part of a troop meeting.
I currently am teaching an Environmental Science class. This started
by having one boy contact me. I asked him to find a buddy to
do the merit badge with him. Some of their friends asked to do
it as well. I wound up with six boys. I chose to meet with them together
at the first boy's meeting site the hour before their meeting.
We still have a lot of outdoor and individual work to do.
