What’s there to see in 2023?

As we do every summer, we have updated our program schedule – rotating out less popular badges and rotating in new ones. Some are recurring familiar badges that make an appearance every so often – like Nature and Law – and some are new to Marriott – like Traffic Safety.

One noted change on the schedule is the shift in time blocks for Shooting Sports badges. For 2023, we plan to teach the badges in 2 hour segments instead of the previous part 1 and 2 version of the class schedule. Be sure to take that into account when planning your activities.

There have also been some changes with the New Scout Quest schedule for new scouts to increase the number of advancement requirements and fun activities. Be sure to check it out!
