Doubleknot for Scouting
Doubleknot currently serves over 150 Councils of the Boy Scouts of America and Girl Scouts of the USA. Our scouting software is designed specifically for Scouting with the help and input from Councils all over the United States.
Summer Camp Solution
Doubleknot’s unique merit badge camp software for Scouting organizations is a complete solution for your most profitable revenue events. It simplifies the sign-up and payment process and creates a single repository for all registration data. Your volunteer leaders can register their troops for merit badge summer camp, select a facility to camp, and choose the merit badge classes for each and every member of their troop. Camping and office staff can print class rosters, set capacity limits, manage wait-lists, and offer discounts. Councils of all sizes are using this module to:
- Create programs, sessions and classes
- Define payment schedules, cancellation policies and auto reminder schedules
- Accept online and offline payments
- Set and control class capacity and wait list configurations for Merit Badge classes
- Set activity specific prices and instructor assignments
- Print a comprehensive set of reports for administrators and unit leaders
- Produce class completion reports (Blue Cards)
- View & export class schedules and participant lists
Additionally, merit badge instructor contact information can be entered or imported into a database and entitled troop leaders and parents can search that database to find specified merit badge counselors. Some of the features include:
- A secure search for counselors of a specific badge or unit. Access is strictly controlled.
- The ability to download the search result information or generate a report of all counselors and badges taught.
- Counselor profiles that contain counselor names, contact information, a flag to determine if their address is displayed, badges taught, training dates, and other important information.
- Administrative features to create new counselor records, maintain counselor information, import counselor information, and assign merit badges to individual and groups of counselors.
