American Cultures Merit Badge Class

Hello Scouts,

I have arranged for a group to attend the American Cultures Merit Badge Workshop being held at the Asia Society Texas Center in Houston at noon on May 9th.

The class is two hours long, and the Asia Society tells me that the scouts will cover all requirements for the badge and get a guided tour of one of their new exhibits.

They are holding a few spots for us, but we need to confirm with them in the next couple of weeks. We should be able to get additional seats if we need to.

The cost for each scout is $10.

If you’d like to signup with the troop, you can register here or contact me: http://bit.ly/amcul2015

Additional info is included below. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

What: American Cultures Merit Badge Class

When: May 9, 2015 – Noon to 2:00 pm

Where: Asia Society Texas Center

1370 Southmore Boulevard

Houston, TX

Cost:    $10 per scout (no charge for adults)

How:   http://bit.ly/amcul2015 (registration deadline April 15)

Come to the Asia Society Texas Center where you can earn the American Cultures Merit Badge.

The workshop will focus on how immigrant groups contributed cultural traits to the United States of America.

The topics will include arts, languages, religious traditions and social customs from Asia and Europe.

The day will end with a guided tour of The Other Side: Chinese and Mexican Immigration to America and a project based on ancestry and heritage.

Cost: $10 per scout, adult chaperones and scout leaders free of charge ($5 parking)

Carpools will leave the J.C. Penney parking lot at 11:15 am.

If you don’t wish to carpool, please make sure that your driver has plenty of time to park and take care of event tickets.

Both programs will provide swimming, campfires and all meals for all scouts and adults.

Full payment is due at time of registration.  It can be a combination of cash, check, subsidy or scout account.

After registration is confirmed by Camp K, a few Merit Badge classes will have additional fees: Art $10; Basketry $25; Shooting $25
