Maritime Museum of San Diego, home to one of the world’s largest collections of historic vessels, fascinating exhibits, and on-the-water adventure guest experiences, will host the 2nd Annual Oceanography Merit Badge Days Saturdays, July 31, August 7, and 14, 2021. The Museum invites scouts and BSA youth to enroll and earn their Oceanography Merit Badge through attendance at one of three classes held on three consecutive Saturdays at the Maritime Museum of San Diego. Classes will run 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Scouts must complete one class to earn their Oceanography Merit Badge.
According to John Walsh, the Eagle Scout and certified merit badge counselor leading the classes, “Exploration lies at the heart of Scouting, and this program is all about giving our local BSA youth the opportunity to more deeply explore the ocean that is so integral to the San Diego community. By combining on-the-water experience, field work, laboratory observation, and scholarly discussion, we are allowing our scouts to become fully immersed in the multiple branches of oceanographic research.”
Maritime Museum of San Diego has hosted for more than 20 years of highly popular and award-winning year-round educational events for hundreds of educators looking for exceptional, educational and experiential programming for youth programs and students.
CDC guidelines and protocol in response to COVID-19 will be implemented and followed by staff and participants.
