Merit Badge Opportunities Summer 2017

 

Dear Troop 165

Attached is the new list of merit badge opportunities at the Crystal Lake Nature Center starting in June, 2017. As a reminder to Scouts and parents, merit badges are completed by the Scouts, based on their interest and initiative (the Troop shares opportunities, but doesn't host these classes).  Several are required for Eagle and are offered at various times throughout the year.  Sign up as your schedules permit (make time when the opportunity arises!)  These group sessions are a great way to learn skills and build interest in new and exciting topics while earning merit badges.

 

See me (Mr. Tucker) for a "blue card" during a Scout meeting, and then sign up on your own for these classes.  If I am not available at a scheduled Trop meeting, another adult leader can provide the blue card for your Scout.

 

FINISH PARTIAL MERIT BADGES:   If you have started a merit badge in the past year (including Eagle College, last year's summer camp, or any other occasion), take the final steps to get those completed.  Don't stop at the 90% mark!  See me if you need a counselor name to complete the badge.
