Museum of Coastal Carolina will help local Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts earn badges on February 27.
On February 27 Museum of Coastal Carolina will help Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts complete partial badge requirements based on exhibits and activities in the museum. Scouts will receive a reduced entry rate of $6 per scout if they wear their uniform or display their troop number; otherwise, regular admission rates apply. Each scout will receive a packet explaining relevant exhibits and activities and how they meet corresponding badge requirements. Exhibits will be marked with a scout insignia for further guidance.
