Join us for our Arctic Adventure this November with a special Eagle Scout focus!  Here is your chance to get a jump on completing those Eagle Merit Badges that you all need to complete your Scouting journey to Eagle Scout.

Each participant has the option of signing up for 1 to 6 merit badges.  Pricing is reflected below and there is a discount for signing up for the entire program!  We will be offering some outside fun and games that include an opening/closing campfire, Sunday morning interfaith services, Order of the Arrow gathering and more.  We know some of you only need one or two badges to work on, so here is your opportunity to choose just what you wish to do.

Prices are as follows:

1 merit badge - $25

2 merit badges - $40

3 merit badges - $55

4 merit badges - $70

5 + merit badges - $80  <---BEST RATE!

These prices include all of the extra programming, excellent Merit Badge instruction, and fantastic personal interaction in a way that will advance you towards your Scouting goals.  It also includes a completion report at the end of the session that you will need to forward to your advancement chair for recording in ScoutBook.  As most of these merit badges are not going to be completed in one session, you will need to work with your Troop to find a counselor to help you as you complete future requirements.  

Do you have a desire to still have blue cards?  We have you covered there as well.  While we no longer provide blue cards for our camp programs, we will do be happy to complete and mail you the blue cards at the end of the program for a one time fee of $8 no matter how many classes you choose.  Please check with your Troop to see what will be best.  There is considerable time and mailing fees involved with sending out physical blue cards, but we have heard feedback from many of our Camp I.T. Out participants that they would prefer them and so we are now offering this service.  

Classes offered - each class is a complete session for that merit badge so we are offering Citizenship in the Community 6 times but your Scout only needs to sign up it once to get all of the instruction we can provide.  We are simply offering multiple opportunities to fit your schedule and to keep our classes small in number to make sure all requirements are completed (for example, if it says "explain" then all must speak and explain for credit):

So, what next?  

1.  Discuss any Merit Badge offerings you wish to take with your Scout Master.  We suggest you get a digital approval (email) even if you cannot meet in person for a signature so there will not be any issues once your program is complete.

2.  Pick the classes you wish to take.  Are you a morning person?  Afternoons better?  Dedicated and want a full schedule so you can work on many classes at once?  We are ok with that too but please remember that Eagle required merit badges are often challenging and will require the Scout to be able to stay attentive during the entire class.

3.  Register for the classes you choose.

4.  Look for an email by November 18th with your log in information.

5.  Bring a great attitude and a desire to learn to your classes to help you succeed!

6.  Be prepared at the end of each class for tips on how to complete the remaining assignments.  We will provide a brainstorming session during each of our classes to make sure that each Scout leaves with the ability to move forward successfully if they are willing to do so.
