Graphic Arts Merit Badge Workshop
Mondays – 6 to 9pm
March 9, April 13, May 11,
September 14 and October 12
You are invited to earn the Graphic Arts merit badge using the 600-year-old letterpress printing process. With minimal advanced preparation, Scouts will be able to leave at the end of the night with the merit badge requirements completed.
The workshop will begin at 6:00pm in the Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology on Orange, 1100 Orange Street, Lancaster, PA.
Everything a Scout needs to know to complete the requirements for this merit badge is in the merit badge pamphlet available at the Pennsylvania Dutch Council Scout Shop, 630 Janet Avenue, Lancaster.
Upon receipt of your paid registration, Scouts will be sent a merit badge workbook in which to complete requirements #2, #5 and #7 before the workshop. These requirements need to be completed ahead of time in order to complete the merit badge at the workshop. For #5b requirement, Scouts need to bring a sample of the five types of binding with each one marked with the binding type and Scout’s name & troop number on a post-it note. For requirement #7, type the information (hand written reports will NOT be accepted) called for in exploring career opportunities in the graphic arts. You will also need a completed merit badge form signed by your Scoutmaster.
