I know that the scouts were very busy and that I had a lot of blue cards to bring home, but it wasn’t until my wife began entering the information into “scout-net” that we realized our ten scouts had completed 45 merit badges this past week.
That’s an average of four and a half per scout! Two scouts earned SEVEN badges each! (A typical summer camp session results in about three badges per scout.)
In addition to these merit badges, five of our scouts participated in the camps’ “Dan Beard” program for first year campers. This program helps scouts to master scouting essentials needed to advance in rank from Tenderfoot to First Class.
All in all, it was a great week.
