Upcoming Merit Badge Events

posted Jan 26, 2015, 12:03 PM by Natalie Outlaw
Since the boys enjoyed it so much they voted to once again this year attend the Josey Merit Badge Campout that will be held April 10-12 this year.  Since that decision our Arrowmoon District has decided to hold a one-day merit badge event at Texas A&M on April 11.  The Sam Houston merit badge day, which our troop attended last year, will be held on April 25 this year.  Our troop has decided to offer ALL of these to our scouts and will coordinate these events.  Obviously your scout will need to choose between the Josey and Texas A&M merit badge events.  The Josey event will be the only campout offered in April.

I will need to know what Scoutmasters are available for the Josey Campout ASAP!
 
We will need at least one adult leader at the Texas A&M MBU.  IOLS training, which several scoutmasters in our troop still need in order to be considered fully trained, is PLANNED to be offered that day.

We will need PARENT volunteers to drive scouts to/from Huntsville for the Sam Houston merit badge day - let me know if you can drive.

Here are details on all of these events:
