Your old favorite is back — our spring Herpetology Workshop on April 20! This course helps Scouts earn the Reptile and Amphibian study merit badge by completing eight of the badge’s 10 requirements in a single five-hour course.

Reptiles and Amphibians meet the masses!

Student Scouts will convene from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and learn the identifying characteristics of reptile and amphibian species, important components of various species’ natural environments, reproductive processes, movement and behavior, and even explore some long-held superstitions about creepy crawlers.

Reptiles and Amphibians meet the masses!

HMNS Scouts courses are offered throughout the spring, with many allowing campers to earn multiple merit badges in a single day. For more information on all things Scouts, including class schedules, class requirements and registration, click here or email scouts@hmns.org.
