Course Scope: This is the Scouts BSA First Aid merit badge class. It is designed for Scouts who have completed all First Aid requirements for Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class. Scouts who complete this course will receive paperwork showing what merit badge requirements they completed that they can take back to their unit. Each student will build a first aid kit as part of this class.

Be Prepared: This course is primarily taught outside, rain or shine. Please be prepared for the weather and to take notes outdoors. We will be in a classroom for a portion of the class.
