Personal Management Merit Badge

Posted on Jun 13 2016 - 1:33pm
Personal Management Merit Badge
 
Mr. Santowski is a merit badge counselor for the Personal Management merit badge and is offering to have Scouts sign up for this merit badge.  One of the key requirements for the Personal Management merit badge is 13 weeks of tracking income, expenses and savings against a prepared budget.  As many Scouts earn money during the summer through various jobs, he is requesting that Scouts who are interested in this MB sign up by sending him an email with your contact information (name, email address and phone number) so they can take advantage of this time frame.  Once the signup is complete, he will send out information to the group regarding this budget tracking requirement.  The balance of the requirements will be covered during a merit badge meeting at the beginning of the new Troop year (September, most likely).
 
Note:  This is open for up to 10 scouts and is on a first come first serve basis. 
 
Please email Mr. Santowski at rsantowski@aol.com if you wish to sign up.

Tougher than a Boy Scout

Posted on Apr 25 2016 - 9:34am

 

Tougher Than A Boy Scout Challenge Weekend! 
April 22-24

The weekend is an entirely a patrol focused weekend.  Everything, is oriented toward the patrol.  Menu planning, Shopping, Cooking, Competitions, Campfires, etc.  Patrol Leaders, you are in charge of making sure your patrol sets the budget.

What is the Tougher Than A Boy Scout Challenge Weekend?

This is a patrol competition based weekend where patrols compete against patrol for points and awards.  This event is structured similar to the television show of the same name.  Patrols will be given a map with a destination marked which contains their ‘next challenge’.  The patrol must work together to locate that challenge location, then work together to successfully complete the challenged.  Once the challenge is completed, their next challenge is identified on the map.  Patrols are scored on how successfully the completed the challenge and time.  The patrol with the ‘most’ points wins the competition.

There have typically been about 9 to 10 challenges for the scouts to find and complete.  These are located all over the camp property.  Last year, we did have a couple challenges all together to determine which patrol got to head out first on the course. 

Where is the Tougher Than A Boy Scout Challenge Weekend held?

This is being held at Camp Babcock-Hovey.  It has many great resources for an event like this.  It has served us well each year.

Registration deadline is April 11, so register here!
