Boy Scout Merit Badge
Reviewed by Edward H. on 11/3/2018
My son and his friend took the welding merit badge course at the Metal Shop Fantasy Camp. What a great experience! The instructor, Mr. Scott Behr, could not have been more professional or kinder to the boys. His clear and concise teaching skills, and obvious expertise in and passion for welding, made the learning fun and pragmatic. He was patient, assuring, corrective and complimentary, all while ensuring safety. An excellent teacher! To coursehorse, your customer service is stellar.
