Also provided is a link to the 2016 Leaders Guide for Camp McKee which contains many of the details about Summer Camp. Information about merit badges offered and the schedule for classes can be found on pages 26-36. Page 46 has a list of what to bring to camp.
The merit badge classes are scheduled between 8:30 – 11:45 and 1:45 – 4:30. Scouts should have a schedule with no more than 1 free period during those times and include at least 1 Eagle required merit badge. More information on Merit Badges can be found at www.meritbadge.org . We will register for merit badge classes as a Troop, so when you hand in your deposit include your merit badge selections.
Adult participation is critical for us to have a successful summer camp experience for the Scouts. By only charging $50 for adults, the Troop will pick up much of the costs in order to encourage adults to attend.
