The Ockanickon website has all of the links for the merit badges up and working. You can find out when and where the MB meets, the pre-reqs that are being required, and any additional money or objects that you need to bring to complete the badge.
Eagle Badges: for the badges that are considered open (the 3 Citizenship ones, Communications and Personal Management), there are additional pre-reqs than in previous years. Read over the page carefully to make sure you have all of the requirements done. Also, for these badges you can complete any of the other requirements not listed as pre-reqs before summer camp and it will be less for you to do while at camp. Theoretically, you can have your entire workbook filled out, make an appointment with the counselor right away and review your work with him for sign off.
Handicraft Badges: for the open badges most of them start every 30 minutes, but they don’t say how long they will take to complete. Plan an hour in your schedule and if you finish early or in just a couple of day, then take another Handicraft badge.
Get your schedules decided on and get them to Mrs. Zalewski, or call on the phone or give them to me at a meeting, however she will not be at too many meetings in the next few months, so email is the best way to get her your schedule. If you have questions about taking certain badges, ask Mrs. Zalewski.
