Certification (Merit Badge) Programs
Guidelines Class Size Registration Blue Card

Our all-volunteer staff provides fully qualified training and certification in the following:

Certification programs guidelines:

    • Scouts are required to pass the standard BSA swim test for swimmer the morning of the class in order to participate.
    • Make sure to bring a Merit Badge blue card signed by your Unit leader and your Merit Badge book.
    • Read and study the merit badge pamphlet before arriving at camp
    • For all aquatics merit badges, be prepared to demonstrate your knowledge of CPR
    • Boy Scouts and Venturers must obtain the unit leader’s approval to register for merit badges. Unit leaders should carefully consider each youth’s ability before allowing them to register
    • Bring the merit badge application (blue card) signed by the unit leader to the camp
    • Instructors will cover all requirements, but completion of the merit badge will depend upon the participant’s ability to attain the required proficiency

Adult leaders and parents may also participate in these programs by registering and paying the required fee.  Whenever possible or requested, adults are instructed separate from the youth.  If you’re already skilled in one of the merit badge or program areas, the base instructors will appreciate your assistance.
