Dee LaRock wrote about getting ready for her son's first year at camp and
asking which MBs he should take. SHe said:
So the list of badges is:
>Fish & Wildlife Management
>Soil & Water Conservation
I wrote her privately regarding a recommended schedule and and sent her the
letter I always send to the parents of new scouts regarding summer camp but
now I'm curious about the MB listing she posted. There's not a single
acquatic badge on the list...well, unless you consider Fishing an acquatic
badge. I wrote her and asked what camp he was attending 'cause I'm
curious....how many BSA camps do not offer Swimming, Lifesaving, BSA
Lifeguard, etc either in a lake or pool? Any general comments? NOT
looking for everyone to talk about their individual camp's list of merit
badge offerings....that'll just use up our 50 messages/day limit real fast.
But any comments of a general nature regarding the availability of those
badges at BSA camps across the nation might be helpful in evaluating our
respective camps. If you want to reply to me privately, I'll try to sum up
the comments and post the results. I have not personally attended a summer
camp that DIDN'T offer swimming merit badge.
BLUE SKIES!, Any day above ground is a good day!
