BADGE WORKSHOPS:

If your Troop is interested in completing requirements for any of the "Outdoor" or "Nature" badges it may be possible to schedule a Badge Workshop. This can be done for groups as small as 5 scouts or as large as 30 scouts. Badge workshops take between 2 and 4 hours to complete (the more scouts the longer the time needed).
There will be a $1.00/ scout fee for Badge workshops.
Please call Sue, Wednesday Sunday, at (580) 563-2238 or (405) 319-8382, to discuss what Badges can be earned at Quartz Mountain.
