Geiser-Weaver is offering two fine art badges this season. For both badges we do all five requirements to earn the badge. We do not provide the actual badge, it is your responsibility to purchase badges for your troop. All materials to finish the badges is provided. All badge workshops require a $30.00 deposit which is due one month prior to the workshop and remainder of fee is due two weeks prior to lesson, no changes in the number of participants can be made after that point. If workshop reservation is made with less than a month notice, then entire amount is due immediately upon receipt of your lesson confirmation e-mail. This is a nonrefundable deposit and is applied to your final fee. There is a six girl minimum for a workshop and if you should not meet this minimum you are required to pay the difference to reach the minimum cost. Payment can be made by troop check or debt/credit card. Check tab called: "Scout Lesson Availability Calendar" for dates that I have open for lessons for both afternoon or evening.
Due to fluctuating gas prices, any lesson outside the city limits of South Lyon will be assessed a gas fee based on a round trip:
$3.00 - outside the city limits of South Lyon - 25 miles
