Older Scout Program

Camp Merz prides itself on running a diverse and exciting Merit Badge Program. In 2022, we are offering over SIXTY Merit Badges, special programs, and BSA Awards in 9 program areas. Merit badges with a STAR* are new this year. Merit badges in RED are Eagle Scout Required.

Prerequisites

All pre-requisites for Merit Badges can be found HERE

Please be aware if your Scouts are taking classes with pre-reqs they must turn them in on the first day of class or turn in a note from the scoutmaster taking responsibility for the pre-reqs.  If they do not, they will be dropped from the class. 

 

Scout may NOT take classes without turning in the pre-reqs prior to starting.  NO EXCEPTIONS!!  NO PARTIALS WILL BE ISSUED WITHOUT A SCOUTMASTER NOTE.

Age & Rank Restrictions

We have set age and rank limitations for various classes and programs. We base these limitations on state regulations, the scout’s safety, and size restrictions. We cannot make acceptations to these limits.

Additional Fees

Some programs require the scouts to purchase additional materials or tickets. Water Skiing, Motor Boating, Shotgun, Basketry and Electronics are some of the classes that may require additional materials. Details will be given at the pre-camp meetings in the camp guide provided at that time.  All materials and program tickets can be purchased at the Trading Post upon arrival.
