Online Merit Badge – Cooking Far East

In an effort to help support Scouts and families as our communities suspend school and other group programs in response to COVID-19, the Far East Council in partnership with the Central Florida Council will be offering Merit Badge programs ONLINE.

WEEK 1: May 4 – May 7

Cooking MB Online Monday – Thursday 6:00 PM CST (China Standard Time) to 7:00 PM CST (China Standard Time)

If you have participated in our programs before, this week will be slightly different! As we try to best serve everyone with the HIGHEST QUALITY Merit Badge program possible, we are trying a few NEW things! Here is how this week will work:

  • Each day you will use that day’s ACCESS BUTTON below. There is a DIFFERENT LINK each day. The buttons activate the day before.
  • Questions can be posted during the session, but they will be responded to AFTER that day’s session by e-mail. This way, you will get specific information back from the Counselor. It may take 24 hours to reply, but we will get back to you.
  • Each evening, after that day’s session, there will be a Daily Work Submission button activated, like in prior weeks.
  • At the end of the week, a FINAL submission form / link will be activated for sharing additional work. You will have TWO WEEKS to complete all submissions to get credit through the online system. After that, we will produce a Blue Card and you may complete remaining requirements with a local Counselor.

Here are some resources and videos to supplement your online learning. You will also find links to each of the required forms to confirm learning/participation:
