Scout Days

Scout Days are awesome opportunities to get your Scouts, friends and family together for some exciting experiences around the area with other Scouting families. All Scout Days are offered at a discounted price of admission. In addition to the districts events and merit badge universities, many of our partners offer merit badge classes and advancement workshops for Cub Scouts, Webelos Scouts and ScoutsBSA. The community partners listed have committed to follow National Council and Sam Houston Area Council policies with regard to youth protection, merit badge counselors and advancement requirements.
