Scouts – Make Your Summer Camp Merit Badge Selections ASAP

scouts-camping-funnyScouts,  if you’re planning to attend summer camp with Troop 108 at Camp Ho-Non-Wah in Charleston, SC from July 5th through 11th then you need to make your merit badge class selections.

Use the merit badge grid found in the link below to make your selections for each of the available class sessions.  Note that some classes extend across multiple sessions.  First year scouts typically are automatically signed up for the first-year scouting program that helps give them a real boost on working through the first few scouting ranks.

Get your class selections to a leader at an upcoming meeting as soon as is possible.  More information on camp and costs will be going out to parents in the very near future.

2015 HNW Merit Badge Schedule

This weekend’s campout is being postponed…

Because of the potential for really cold and wet weather for the upcoming weekend, the adult leaders have decided that the campout scheduled for the ASC Greenway will be postponed until our March “Cross Over” Campout where we welcome new members moving up from Webelos.
Those who have already registered and paid for this weekend’s campout may either request a refund or have their payment carried over to the March campout event. – just let Ms. Nicky know which you prefer.
