What Parents are Saying
"My son attended this event and he and I were very impressed with the entire event. We drove from Laurel, Maryland to participate. We were so impressed that we have signed up for 3 additional merit badge events."
"Our troop had a wonderful time Playing the Past at Sully the other day. Alexandra was so engaging, the two hours just flew by. We can't wait to get back for another event. Thank you."
"This is an excellent program. They learned a lot, and they’re thankful that they attended. Thank you very much. Please host more of these Boy Scout merit badge workshops."
"You made American Heritage so fun that we signed up for 2 more of yours!!"
"The class was well run, the staff was excellent, the boys learned and had a good time."
"I thought this was an extraordinary program - very, very high quality for a reasonable price. Thank you so much - I'm sure my daughter will not forget her visit!"
"Thank you for Taking the time and effort on weekends to educate and enlighten the scouts. We love having our boys go to Sully as the experience has always been top notch!! Props to you and all other staff there."
"The staff is always very courteous and the communications from Ms. Fernandez prior to the class are always very informative and professional. Thanks and see you next time!"
"My son really enjoyed the class. He wasn’t sure what to expect going into it, but he talked about it the whole way home. I have another son who took the textile merit badge class at summer camp a couple of years ago. The two of them were comparing notes and both agreed that the Sully class was WAY better than the summer camp class. Thank You!!"
"Just had to thank you again for a wonderful program for the
girls on Wednesday (Aug 10). You certainly had all your ducks in a
row -- I never would have guessed you hadn't been offering Special
Agent and Field Day sessions for years!
I have highly recommended your programs to sister Girl Scout troops."
