Merit Badges at Miakonda


Saturday, December 28, 2019

9:00-4:00, with lunch provided

Scouts BSA,

Here’s a great event to help you learn new skills and hopefully earn a merit badge 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.

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


Digital Technology







Scouting Heritage



$18 registration fee per Scout includes lunch, patch, class supplies, and the full day experience.  One merit badge class per Scout includes six instructional hours.  Class sizes are limited so register early.

Remember to secure your "blue card" (merit badge application) signed by your Scoutmaster as communication with and permission from your leader to register.                               


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


The BSA's merit badge program is designed around your interests and initiatives; events like these are intended to help you develop more interests in life.  To learn more about the full merit badge program, please click here.
