Follow the instructions below to prepare for your Merit Badge Sessions.  Remember the Scout Motto:  Be Prepared !!!
 
Preparation for All Merit Badge Sessions:
For all the Merit Badge Sessions, there is an expectation of the Scout to have done all required preparation prior to attending class (listed by MB below) and that they will actively participate in class (especially for the Eagle Required Merit Badges: Camping, Communication, Cooking, and Personal Management). Please do not show up to class unprepared or not actively participate in discussion and expect to earn the Merit Badge. If any prerequisites are not completed before the session, the Scout will will need to complete them after the session before the Merit Badge will be awarded.  Recommendation is to print and fill out the Merit Badge workbook prior to class to help the Scout organize his thoughts and knowledge during discussions. Filling out the Merit Badge workbook is not a requirement. 
The workbooks for all Merit Badges can be found at this link: http://meritbadge.org/wiki/index.php/Merit_Badge_Worksheets
 
Camping Merit Badge Prerequisites - Allyn Mogil (allyn.mogil@gmail.com)
Camping requirements 1-8c and 10 can be completed in class if the Scout is prepared. Read the requirements and bring any required items to class including written camping plans and maps, packed backpacks, clothing, sleeping gear, menus, food lists, duty rosters, cooking gear, etc. Requirement 6 is pitching a tent. Tents will be available at the class or you may bring your own. Requirements 8d and 9 need to be completed outside of class. Requirement 8d is cooking meals. Scouts that have completed the work outside of class can bring photos, a signed document from an adult leader, or other proof showing the requirement has been met. Requirement 9a is actual nights camping. Scouts need to bring their completed and signed camping log (in the back of their Scout Handbook) to class. Requirement 9b is special camping experiences. Scouts need a signed document from an adult leader or other proof showing the requirement has been met. Requirement 9c is a conservation project. Scouts need to bring their completed and signed service log (in the back of their Scout Handbook) to class and be prepared to explain what project was done to satisfy this requirement.
