Do many troops work on Merit badges at meetings
Last summer our PLC listened to their parents and voted to work on MB's at
meetings over the summer. They found out what MB's most Scouts needed and
had classroom First Aid, tested for Personal Fitness, ... and a few others.
Most of the Scouts earned the MB's they set out to earn. But..... By the end
of July the Scouts started saying "Gee This is not much fun..." the first 2
to complain brought games to the next several meetings. I myself would not
recommend it in most situations. It is difficult to teach a group of 8 to 10
boys and have an idea that they are really getting much understanding.
Maybe for a certain MB and on a limited basis only.
