SELECT & COMMUNICATE MERIT BADGES:

You must submit your MB Selection Form - Scouts at or before the time your final payment is due - some MBs may have additional costs. The earlier you pay/sign-up, the more likely you will get the MB you desire. Before selecting MBs, review MBs already completed/started to not duplicate. Make sure you complete any prerequisites noted on the MB schedule (starts on p. 6 under "Details). If Scouts want to take MBs with buddies, coordinate in advance. Sign up by first reviewing the attached MB Program Schedule, then email the attached MB Selection Form to ASM Scott Thompson at cdrsfthompson@gmail.com with your 1st, 2nd and 3rd choices and a few alternates just in case. When choosing MBs, Scouts should consider the difficulty, balance of Eagle-required, and taking advantage of the particular camps unique offerings - Scoutmasters may recommend other MBs for your Scout. MBs will be processed based on first paid.


For First-Year Scouts, use the Merit Badge Selection Form - First Year Scouts.

MB PREREQUISITES
Many MBs have prerequisites which need to be completed before camp. If not completed, the MB will not be fully earned at camp. See attached Merit Badge Prerequisites.

FIRST-YEAR SCOUT PROGRAM (BUFFALO BRAVES)

First-year Scouts are strongly encourage to take this program designed to advance in rank, yet limits the number of Merit Badges that can be taken. Review the attached First-Year Program materials and plan accordingly, especially when selecting Merit Badges. First-Year Scouts should sign up for the Swimming MB at 11am to take together as a group. MB slots at 3:30pm and after can also be chosen - read info on MB Selection Form - First Year Scouts below for more details on which MBs to choose.


HEALTH FORMS:

Required BSA Health Forms A, B and C must be current and complete. "Current" means all three forms, including Form C which must be completed, signed/ and dated by a physician. Must be dated no earlier than July 12, 2018 (it cannot be more than one year old by the last day of camp). Make your doctor's appointment NOW. Camp Staff will not allow you to enter camp without these properly completed forms. 


CONSENT FORM:

Summer Camp requires an additional Consent Form - see attached


FOOTLOCKER: We highly recommend using this FOOTLOCKER to pack all belongings as it is sized correctly to fit under your bunk in the tent and contents will not spill out of tent platform. If you do not have one, first see if you can borrow one from another Scout family. If you need to purchase the trunk, BUY IT EARLY as many Scouts from other units are buying the exact same trunk.
