Description

We will be offering morning and afternoon session of merit badge classes, a couple are full day sessions.  Troops will be asked to check in at Iowa Hall from 7:00 am to 7:45am.  A brief opening ceremony will be held outside at 7:50am and sessions will begin at 8:30 am (weather permitting).  The afternoon sessions will begin at 1pm.  Each session will cost $10.  There are some sessions that will last all day.  These will cost $20.  All merit badges that will have field trips will be on campus for lunch.  There are a few merit badges that have extra material fees.



We have it set up so that you can prepay for your lunch.  The cost will be $8.00.  You will need to sign up on the website for the lunch vouchers.  You will receive the vouchers in your registration packet. We will NOT be selling lunch vouchers on campus, they must be purchased with registration!  So please plan ahead and pre-order lunch!!   To sign up for lunch vouchers, please use the food entry.



This year's menu is hamburger or a hotdog, chips, homemade mac and cheese, and lemonade/water.  Please do not bring any outside lunches into the cafeteria area.  Vending machines will be available to purchase additional snacks.  No change machines will be available.


Counselor Information

We ask that you have a contact person that will be attending the work shop for each troop.  We will need their phone number for emergencies.  We would also ask that all release forms be turned in to the registration table prior to expedite registration that morning.



**Some merit badge sessions will be taking field trips.  We will need volunteers to help with transportation of scouts.  If your troop has scouts signed up, please be ready to help with travel.



ONCE YOUR TROOP HAS SIGNED UP, PLEASE SEND A LIST OF ADULT VOLUNTEERS TO PAM.  We are a small troop and need at least two adults in each session.  It is CRITICAL to the success that we have adults that will sit in sessions.



The Scout Oath, the Law, and the Outdoor Code shall be the guiding behavior for our workshop.  A Scout whose conduct is not consistant with the code will be directed to leave the campus immediately. Adequate supervision must be provided by each participating unit.   



No siblings or non-registered youth will be allowed in classrooms!
