Scouts Rock Climbing Merit Badge
This two-day program fulfills the requirements for scouts to receive their climbing merit badge. WILD GUYde is an approved Merit Badge Counselor with the Virginia Headwaters BSA Council. When we set up the course with you, we mail you a badge booklet for each scout, outlining the requirements and skills. You do some prep with your troop beforehand (knots and first aid), and then when we meet at the rocks to spend two busy days climbing, belaying, rappelling, and learning. We will comp one adult leader for every 5 scouts registering.
($90 per person, with a 5-person minimum)
