How to earn the BSA Solar Eclipse Patch


A total solar eclipse is a rare event. A total solar eclipse whose path crosses right over the heart of the United States? Even rarer.

 

On Aug. 21, 2017, the solar system serves up a special treat. Aug. 21 is a Monday, but those Scouts and Venturers who are still on summer break should plan a big celebration. Like all the best celebrations, this one comes with its own patch.

 

There won’t be another total solar eclipse over the United States until 2024. After that, you must wait until 2045. In other words, when Aug. 21 arrives, make sure you’re ready.

 

See this flyer to learn how!

As we think about the future, we are interested in gaining your perspective as a member of the Scouting Community.  Please join us for a discussion at 6:30pm (Thursday, August 10th at Danville First United Methodist Church, 1400 N. Vermilion St. or Thursday, August 17th at Illinois Fire Service Institute, 11 Gerty Dr., Champaign) As we continue the important conversation about how to make Scouting more accessible to today’s families.

 

I look forward to speaking with you in August. 

 

Thank you for everything you do to make Scouting a pivotal part of our community.

 

Yours in Scouting,

 

Gay Martin
