Scope of Training and Culture of Program

Scouts will have a good time with this program. Earlier this year at a intro meeting for Many Point, a parent asked if their Scout would be find this program useless if they already have Emergency Preparedness and Safety Merit Badges?

The answer is that this program goes far beyond what the BSA currently offers in any emergency / medical / preparedness program. We have real working professionals, and a world class staff who will be guiding your Scouts. We make sure Scouts get a good taste of these fields, and are comfortable in the situations they experience.
