    Boating Badge?

    Oh OK I had no clue. I just saw that it had the word Boat in it.

    Boating Badge?

    The RC boat badge is for remote control boats, not full size boats.

    Boating Badge?

    "Members of the NAMBA and IMPBA RC boat racing clubs are helping to write a RC boat badge." from February 2019 Newsletter.

    Boating Badge?

    All I could find is the Marine Craft badge which isn't really what you are looking for either. Maybe it is a badge you can create!

    Boating Badge?

    Is there a boating badge of some sort? I've done a couple of searches and haven't come across anything, but thought I would ask! We are looking for something to do with basic boating knowledge or boating safety?

  8. I am not sure if it will allow you to edit comments or not, but I can as the moderator if you need me to.
  9. I have this question, as well.
  10. Is there a way to edit a comment or post once it is commented/posted?

    Leader?

    Would it count towards the leadership badge or volunteer hours though?

    Bake Sale

    OK thanks! Wouldn't want to violate any laws. 😄

    Bake Sale

    Just make sure you check your local food safety laws! We used to sell pies every fall - until we found out we were in violation of the law by selling pumpkin pies.

    Bake Sale

    A bake sale is a great year to earn money for badges and troop expenses. Every year my troop does a Bake sale at our local Hunter Douglas. One of our girls father works at Hunter Douglas and has set this up every year for us. 😄 It is super fun and easy to do.

    😄 No problem! 😄
  16. It is extremely easy. I can't think of an area of study that we have done that can't have at least one badge tied into it.

    Earning badges at a higher level

    @sarvinnaddi Yes. You just can't count the same hours for both a Servant's Heart and a Make a Difference.

    Leader?

    No. You have to either be a parent or an over 18 leader in a troop to be counted as a leader. Helping your little brother lives our motto, "If you see a need, take the lead!".

    Community service in your neighborhood

    Yes. You can use time spent picking up trash toward your Servant's Heart awards or if you organize continuing scheduled group cleanups it can even be used as Make a Difference project.

    Troop award

    That works too. It is up to each troop as to which girls wear the patches. The patches honor the leaders more than the girls, so that is my main concern.

    Specific badges

    We can make a badge for anything you would like to learn about. Just like we started with just a music badge, but now have music appreciation, music theory, musical composition, music by genre, etc. We can do the same thing for math or any other subject. Any badge would need to include not only learning the math skills, but ways to apply them in real life in a variety of ways. The goal is to take what you are learning in school to a new level and find ways to apply it in fun and unusual ways.

    Troop award

    Kerry - We've always let all the kids wear the "Super Troop" patch since it advertises the troop as a well-run unit, but only give out year bars to the girls who participated for that year. Does that work?

    Meetings for large troops

    Email me and I will put you in touch with troop #144 in PA which is our largest at 52 members and is amazingly well run. Having enough volunteers will be your biggest obstacle. A troop can only grow as big as they have volunteers to serve them and a meeting place that can hold them. Make sure you have committed volunteers in place before growing too fast.
