Scout Merit Badge Weekend - August 29th & 30th, 2020

Cancelled!    It comes with a heavy heart that we had to make the tough decision to cancel this year's event. Several factors played into us having to make this decision.  We hope to see all of you next summer!

This event is open to all BSA Scouts who have reached the age of 10.5 or have completed 5th grade.  Merit badge choices must be made during registration. 

We have spent some time working on how we can provide a safe, fun and educational experience for all of our Scouts as a result of COVID-19 things are going to look a bit different this year than last year.  Sadly we will not be providing camping on the South Bay Marina Campus nor will we be providing any meals for scouts.  All meals for this event must be provided on your own.  Sharing of food between scouts shall be prohibited. Scouts who wish to participate in this event will have the option of participating in just one day of the weekend event or both days of the weekend event.  ***Note:  your scout will only be able to complete up to three merit badges during a single day.  ***

Here is a short list of some of the chages that you should expect for this year's event:
  • face mask or buff shall be worn by scouts, leaders, parents or other spectators while on shore and on the water while within close proximity of each other
  • social distantcing will be strictly enforced
  • the number of scouts in each session has been drastically reduced
  • scouts will be placed into groups and will travel from session to session with their group
  • scouts will be grouped in with other scouts from their region (for example:  Oshkosh area, Wausau area, Green Bay area, etc.)
  • temperature checks will be taken upon arrival.  Everyone in your vehicle will be subject to the temperature check.  If someone in your vehilce group presents with a temperature of 100.4 or above your entire vehicle group will not be allowed to participate in the weekend events.
  • leaders, parents or other spectators will not be allowed to travel with their scouts from session to session
  • there will be a designated area for leaders, parents or other spectators to wait for their scouts if they wish to stay on campus
***NOTE:  All Scouts must be checked in and out of this event by an adult responsible for them for this weekend event. All scouts, parents, other spectators and volunteers will be subjected to temperature checks at check in.  Every scout, parent, other spectator and volunteer must have proper face coverings and practice social distancing.  Any scout, parent, other spectator or volunteer who presents with symptoms of COVID-19 will be asked to leave immediately and shall NOT be entitled to a refund.  Any scout, parent or volunteer who does NOT comply with any and all safety policies and procedures in regard to COVID-19 will be asked to leave immediately and shall NOT be entitled to a refund.***
