Scouting Workshops

a colorful way to earn a badge!

Your $50 deposit books your workshop with the balance due on the day your workshop begins.  Workshops can be modified to include projects of your choice.  Don't see an art badge you want to earn?  Email the requirements to us and if we have the supplies - we'll make it happen!
