2010 Bartle Merit Badges

Sunday, April 4th, 2010


Summer camp offers your scout a tremendous opportunity to earn merit badges which are the cornerstone of ranks above First Class.  Scouts can choose from a variety of merit badges to take at Bartle camp this year.

We will be collecting the scout’s preferences over the next two meetings and registering the classes online. 
Please have your scouts choose merit badges to fill the days for both halves of the session.  Some classes are taught for six (6) days and some for only three (3).  Some classes are “open” and can be completed in the scout’s free time.

Some merit badge classes carry an extra charge (above the cost of summer camp).  Please take note of any additional charges and be prepared with the appropriate fees (along with camp payments) if your scout chooses those classes. 

Here is the link to the daily schedule and the list of merit badges.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Mr. Hines or Mr. Petznick either online or at a scout meeting.
