Merit Badges

Scouts are expected to obtain and READ their merit badge books.  You do not have to buy all of them; you may borrow from the troop library or other scouts in the troop.  If you are taking a merit badge with prereqs, you must have them done BEFORE CAMP.

You should buy or borrow a trunk similar to this one. (Note:
many stores sell these in a set of 2; you probably don't need 2.)

See HERE for the Summer Camp Packing List

Also recommended, but not required:
  • Camp chair
  • Small tent fan 
  • Mosquito/bug net (Something like this)
  • Tarp for tent floor 
You can drop off your trunk (to come).

You don't have to fit everything in the trunk; we can pack things like
sleeping bags and chairs in the trailer outside the trunks.  But remember:
PUT NAME ON EVERYTHING: trunk, toiletries, hats, socks, boots, water bottle,
sleeping bag, pillow, towels, etc.etc.etc!

(If you have room, also put troop number on summer-camp items, especially
uniform items, paperwork or anything that will be carried around camp.)
