Summer Camp 2014 Update

For scouts who’ve signed up for summer camp the following must be done, hopefully within the next 1-2 weeks:

  1. Pay the balance of fees (to total $350) to Susan Swider.
  2. Pick merit badge subjects to undertake for up to 4 sessions, in order of preference. Each Session meets at the same time on Mon, Tues, Thurs & Friday.

Online signup’s for merit badges begin soon, probably within 1-2 weeks, and it’s first come, first served, to the capacity of the classes. I will input the Scouts names and merit badge requests as they arrive to me.

The current list of merit badges being offered can be found here. Though please note, it is a draft and is subject to change.
