Sunbeam Class

Sunbeam is a class  for 7 year olds, it is the 4th class in the Adventurer Curriculum

To receive the Sunbeam Class Pin, Adventurers must complete the Basic Requirements, as well as, at least one section from My God, My Self, My Family and My World groups
Many Clubs choose the sections that include an Adventurer Award badge, Adventurers love collecting badges! Remember Adventurers can complete required awards they have missed from a previous class, but cannot do required awards from a higher class. E.g. A Sunbeam can do required awards from Busy Bee  but not Builder
