While these classes are designed to accomplish objectives related to Boy Scout badges, members of other youth organizations or children (of any gender) simply interested in these topics are welcome to enroll. It is usually impossible to accomplish all objectives related to a badge in only a few hours, but LLELA staff will include as much as possible in a series of hands-on, engaging activities. Registration is required by 11a.m. the Friday before the activity. * Register here or by calling 972.219.3550

*These workshops are intended for individual children or very small troops to participate; whole groups of Scouts can schedule a workshop specifically for their group on a different date.
