New 2021 Scouts will not be charged the $20.00 late fee (if paid after 4/19) but, due to supplies ordered, may not be guaranteed to receive their free Summer Camp Cap (by the way, it is a nice cap).
On to another point: It is time to sign up for the Merit Badges that you wish to earn while at camp.  This year, the maximum badges that you will be able to work on is (4).  Suggestion for New 2021 Scouts: Do not go for more than 2-3 Merit Badges (Note: Schedule them all in the Morning - or  - all in the Afternoon, this will allow time to work on your Tenderfoot, 2nd Class & 1st Class Requirements.
Once you have decided on your choices / schedule - please email to Mr. Nelson by May 8th for processing.  Please note that Mr. Nelson will do his best to get your choices but, due to high volumes, cannot guarantee your picks.  We suggest that you send in alternative choices (note them as alternatives) so that if an opportunity is not available, an immediate replacement can be put in.  
Refer to attached spreadsheet for Merit Badge Choices, Times Offered, Age Requirements (on some badges), additional costs (on some badges) and Pre-Requisites (requirements that must be done before arrival at camp)
Questions: Contact Mr. Nelson or any Adult Leader that has been to this camp before!
