Classes will be LIVE and IN PERSON. Instructors are experts, serious hobbyists, or have careers in their field. Counselors may work with youth offline to complete pre-requisites or finish up badges if there is homework.
Scouts will have the opportunity to complete most badges during STEM Adventure Weekend. All pre-requisites and homework will be shared in advance. From BSA's Merit Badge Group Instruction Guide: "Merit badges are intended to encourage individual initiative as each Scout selects topics they will pursue as they advance. Merit badge events may provide a means to support those interests through access to counselors and resources, but they do not guarantee the badge can be completed on-site. ... For many badges—perhaps even most of them—partial completion is not only acceptable but expected from a merit badge event."
Like summer camp, the OUTING part of Scouting is an important aspect of the experience. We highly discourage phones at camp unless the class requires that technology. There will be a lot on offer at mealtimes, free time, evenings, and the camaraderie scouts enjoy just hanging out is priceless.
