Whoa, thar, podner. Why the big push for merit badges? Doesn't the camp
have an advancement track? how about spending some time getting to at
least Second Class at summer camp? We generally encourage new scouts to
get their feet wet with one-two merit badges and work on rank
advancement half of the time. Gives them a greater sense of achievement.
As to Jan M. comment about packing, let them but make sure that they
carry their own bag. Makes a great learning experience. One Careat,
Don't let them take anything you absolutelly want to be returned back
home. The oods are against it.
