Summer Camp Merit Badge Pre-requisites

Last week, we sent out an email via TroopWebHost which contained a report showing each Scout’s merit badge schedule for Summer Camp, as well as which badges had requirements that needed to be completed before camp. The best plan is to complete all of those requirements listed before you leave for camp, so that you can have the best chance of completing the badge at camp. It has been our experience that if a scout returns home from Summer Camp without fully completing the badge, they are less likely to get that badge finished up.

The class schedule report also showed which badges required special gear to be brought to camp. If you need us to resend you the class schedule report, please email and let us know. Some of the activities (whitewater rafting, caving) also require waivers to be filled out and brought with you to camp. Information about the waivers was included in the TroopWebHost email sent out last week, so please fill out the waivers and turn them in to an adult leader at an upcoming troop meeting. They are due no later than the Family Picnic on July 2nd. Lastly, if you are participating in the ATV activity, there was a separate email sent out to you which had waivers attached to it, so please fill out those waivers and turn them in as well.

Please take some time between now and the start of camp to complete any pre-requisite requirements for the badges you have signed up for. Let’s return home from Summer Camp with a bunch of completed merit badges!
