Is Your Summer Camp Offering the Four 100th Anniv. MBs?

Postby Billiken » Mon Apr 19, 2010 2:01 pm

Our summer camp, Seven Ranges Scout Reservation (Buckeye Council) is offering three of the four 100th anniversary MBs this summer during their seven week season. :!: :D

Carpentry, Tracking, and Signaling will be available.

I hope other camps this summer will do the same.

Same 3 for us at Camp Rodney MD. Pathfinding is not offered since it is a more "local" badge.

Seton Scout Reservation in Greenwich, CT will not be offering any of the 4 during our 1 week of Boy Scout Day Camp, held after our 6 weeks of CS Day Camp. We will be offering at least 2 of the 4 during our MB Workshop during Fall 2010.

As far as I know, our council camp has not advertised offering any of these badges. Maybe there will be a counselor at camp that week you will volunteer to do one or more of them.

Camp Phillips on Northern WI is offering Signaler and Tracking. We have some guys on our Troop who have already earned a couple and plan to hit at least one more.

I was jealous when I saw the booklet. I wanted to do carpentry pretty badly.

We're doing Carpentry next weekend. We got a cabinetmaker to combine Carpentry and Woodwork. He thinks he can get 6 boys to finish both badges in one 8 hour day. Can't wait to see their projects!

The two badges requirements are so close to each other that they can double dip. If they had also brought back Wood Turning MB, you could have a Trifecta.
