Merit Badges at Miakonda


Saturday, December 29, 2018

9:00-4:00, with lunch provided

Boy Scouts,

Here’s a great event to help you learn new skills and hopefully earn a merit badge or two over the winter holiday.  Hosted at Camp Miakonda by the Erie Shores Council Advancement Committee, we will focus on skills and badges that are trades-related, perhaps not offered very often, and suited for our camp’s resources, including the new Wildlife & Nature Center.

All sessions will have dedicated classrooms in the program areas and cabins at Camp Miakonda.  Scouts should obviously “Be Prepared” for class sessions to include teaching and activity time both indoors and outdoors depending on the course content.  The schedule will be blocked for counseling and instruction on just one merit badge during the six-hour period, and some classes may offer two related merit badges.

Some of the skills planning to be taught / merit badges available to earn in part or in whole:






Fire Safety

American Labor



Digital Technology

Safety / Traffic Safety





Mark your calendars now, and recruit your Patrol Members to join you.  Sorry, but overnight camping will not be offered.

Adults may register for Scoutmaster Specifics training (use this link) & Scoutbook orientation course (no RSVP required) during the same timeframe, both located at Jadel Leadership Center.  Lunch for adult chaperones / trainees may be pre-purchased using the online registration below.
