Climbing Merit Badge - Last Call 

Climbing Merit Badge Signup – Its one day before the scheduled start of Climbing Merit Badge, if your scout plans to take climbing merit badge beginning this week visit the troop website and signup today. If sufficient signup does not happen today we’ll be forced to cancel this event.

This is unfortunate since climbing was on the boy’s activities list at yearly planning and a significant number of hands went up four weeks ago during a troop meeting and last week there were seven hands raised. The committee decided to fund the climbing costs associated with this event in part due to feedback we received from parents and scouts about adding more diverse selection of activities during troop meetings.

The troop committee has also planned to bring in Robotics Merit Badge and NJ Boating Safety as additional types of events and challenges for our scouts however if participation in more traditional scouting activities such as climbing is minimal then that calls into question a strategy of expanding event opportunities.

So last call for Climbing Merit Badge; scouts of all ages can participate.

  3. Complete the prerequisites.
  4. Review the completed prerequisites and the checklist with a parent.
  5. The parent will sign off that all of the pre-requirements are complete for the merit badge.
  6. Scouts will bring the prerequisites and parent signed off checklist form to a scout meeting for a troop leader to look over and sign off.

Scouts or parents may contact Mrs. Zalewski or Mrs. Garvey with any questions or concerns.
