Merit Badges offered at Camp Chawanakee 2018

After posting the notes from the April 3, 2018 Parent Committee Meeting, we had a couple of requests from parents to know what badges were being offered at Camp Chawanakee this summer.

Mr. Weakliem has kindly provided us with this list.

The following badges are being offered that count towards the Eagle Scout rank. Summer camp is a great opportunity to earn these badges. If your scout has his sight set on earning the Eagle Scout rank, I would encourage you to let them know about this opportunity. Ultimately, it is their choice, but you can help give them the best information to make their decision.

This year, there are nine Eagle Required Badges being offered. I’ve seen some camps where there are only three or four, so to see nine is great.

  • First Aid
  • Camping
  • Citizenship in the World
  • Communication
  • Cooking
  • Emergency Preparedness
  • Environmental Science
  • Lifesaving
  • Swimming

If you have any questions, please contact Scoutmaster Weakliem.
