A Scout is Prepared!

Please make sure you bring your printed Merit Badge Worksheet(s) with you to camp! These are a tool for your success.

You are encouraged to use merit badge worksheets available at usscouts.org. As explained in the worksheets, these are tools that help you jot down ideas after you read through the merit badge pamphlets to remind you to ask your merit badge counselor for more information during your time working on the badge. It is highly recommended that you print out the worksheets for each merit badge you plan to work on and bring them along with you to camp.

Special Requirements

Many Merit Badges require that the scsout have permission slips, special clothes or shoes, extra clothes, etc.

Please check the details of every Merit Badge and make sure that your scouts are prepared to work on that badge.
