2017 Conclave Information

For Scouts and Scoutmasters


The conclave is a great opportunity for Scouts to work on concentrated advancement toward Eagle and/or work toward earning at least one merit badge from more than 20 being offered. We set our standards high to make the Scouts’ experience as enjoyable as possible, by providing quality merit badge counselors from several communities. We want to make sure that the Scouts learn as much from the courses as possible and even go as far as having courses off-site at William Penn University & local businesses.

Our focus is to give the Scouts access to highly trained professionals in the field of the merit badge topics, allowing them to draw from the counselors’ training and experience. This helps them in achieving a large portion of the requirements while at the conclave. There are some requirements that we just cannot do within our conclave setting. These are items that the Scout will need to complete on their own once they get home and their local Scoutmaster and counselor will need to approve.


Scouts should bring the Merit Badge Worksheets for the badge(s) they will earn at the Conclave.

Scouts are to bring any and all of the reports, projects, “props” for demonstration, or any other requirements that have been completed beforehand. Be prepared to present these to your counselor during your class.

We strongly suggest that all Scouts bring paper, pencil and the Merit Badge books for their classes from your troop’s library. The merit badge book should be read before attending the Conclave. This will help the Scout to finish the badge on the day of the class.

Bring any written approvals by parents or the Scoutmaster if needed.

In the case all merit badge requirements have not been met during the conclave, a sheet will be given to the Scout showing requirements not met. It is then the Scout’s responsibility to get this to his Scoutmaster to sign off on the remaining work for that merit badge.


The conclave is held throughout the entire church property, William Penn College and local businesses. Conduct yourselves properly. The church sanctuary is OFF LIMITS!

If you see a Scout doing something they shouldn’t be doing, even if they aren’t in your Troop, please correct them. If you see a Scout doing something right, please congratulate them.


Scoutmasters — remember to file your tour permits.

All sessions will meet at the Central United Methodist Church and receive directions from there. Off-site classes are shown on the merit badge chart. Some classes will be shuttled to their off-site location and some will walk to their location. Classes marked “tour” will have class at the church and leave for a tour off church grounds as well. Dress accordingly.


Lunch will consist of walking taco or loose meat sandwich and chips, dessert and a drink. It will be served in the church dining hall/fellowship hall.

Additional snacks and drinks will be available for purchase throughout the day.

NO FOOD OR DRINK is allowed anywhere in the church besides the dining hall & lower hall.
