At this point, we have 25+ Scouts, Scouters, and Webelos registered to attend. Please plan to attend the Troop Meeting on Wednesday so final details can be worked out. We need to work on Patrols, Meal Planning, Patrol Duty Rosters, Tent Partners, and other details. We will have a small area for our campsite, so plan on small tents for 2 people. Departure time will probably be at 6:00 am Saturday with return to Marshfield around Noon Monday. I know some people will be on different schedules.
Adults- we need to organize carpooling and do our meal planning. We are allowed 1 “Equipment Vehicle” at our site, but it will be trapped there until Monday morning. And there are more logistics to discuss. I will email Monday morning.
The merit badge counselor is a key player in the Boy Scout advancement program. Whatever your area of expertise or interest—whether it is a special craft or hobby (basketry, leatherwork, coin collecting), a profession (veterinary medicine, aviation, engineering), or perhaps a life skill (cooking, personal management, communication)—as a merit badge counselor, you play a vital role in stirring a Scout’s curiosity about it. By serving as a counselor, you offer your time, knowledge, and other resources so Scouts have the opportunity to broaden their horizons. And in doing so, your mission is to combine fun with learning.
