Troops have the opportunity to camp out Friday night April 5th &/or Saturday night April 6th.  You will be able to set up your tents around the park area.  We ask that if you plan to do this to let the event manager know ASAP so that we can ensure we have enough room allowed for your group.

Classes:
We are offering a variety of hands on quality merit badge classes.  Each class will be staffed with qualified counselor(s).  Scouts should get approval from their Scoutmaster & Parents for their class selection.  Younger Scouts should be discouraged from pursuing advanced badges they may be unable to complete or appreciate the knowledge being shared.  Troop Leaders should know the abilities of their scouts & should spend time prior to the MBW preparing your scout for success.  Most badges have pre-requisites that must be completed prior to the MBW day.  If your scout does not have these pre-requisites they will not be able to complete the badge requirements & the counselor will only sign off on completed requirements.  If there is requirements that must be done after the class then you scout will need to work this out with their leader/parent.  Some classes will have additional fees the are annotated  in the registration section for the classes.  We are offering 2 double merit badge classes, Fingerprinting/Crime Prevention & Fire Safety/Safety.  All Food & drinks (except water) will not be allowed in the classrooms. 

Materials to Bring:
“A Scout is Prepared” With that in mind we expect your scout to arrive prepared for the days activities.  They will need a notebook, pen/pencil, & depending on the merit badge they might need their ScoutBook.  They will also need all pre-requisites for their chosen merit badges.

Dress Code:
The BSA Class B/field uniform is the official uniform for the day.
