Eagle required merit badges cannot be started at this camp. If you have a partial for an Eagle required merit badge, you may finish it
If you want to start a new merit badge, you will need Scoutmaster approval in advance. Mr Ranganathan will review the responses of the form and approve them. You don’t need to do anything extra – just submit the form. Be aware that he might reach out to you if he has any questions about your merit badge choices. You can review which merit badges are offered at camp here – http://www.advancecamp.com/merit-badges/60419
If you are interested in trailhead requirements, you can review which trailhead requirements are being offered here – http://www.advancecamp.com/trailhead/55580
There is a limited number of spots for each session. We need to specify the merit badge/trailhead choices as part of the registration. There is no guarantee that your first choice will be available, so you also need to specify an alternate choice.
Other things to be aware of:
There are two sessions – AM and PM. For each session, you can sign up for a merit badge or a partial or trailhead. You cannot sign up for multiple items in one session.
Some merit badges take up both sessions. You cannot sign up for anything else if you are signing for these merit badges.
Some merit badges have minimum age requirements. Please do not sign up for a merit badge if you do not meet the requirements.
If you do not finish the prerequisites for a merit badge, you will be given a partial.
