Webelo Activity Badge

Be prepared for fun and achievement!

Boy Scouts can work towards a pin, badge or belt loop at our Scout Workshops conveniently located in downtown Chattanooga, Tennessee. We will take care of all the details, including the staff instruction, planning, and meals.

During a lock-in, Webelos Scouts can complete some or most requirements for one Activity Badge. All scouts participate in the same activity and earn their badges together as a group. Groups will select one program and complete the requirements guided by Museum staff.

We offer lock-in programs for Girl Scouts Juniors, Girl Scout Brownies and Cub Scouts as well.
