Boy Scout Troop 465 Hickory Flat, GA

Wilderness Survival Merit Badge Campout
Friday May 17 - Sunday May 19, 2024
Lazy D Farm

Scouts, Scouters and Parents,

I want to begin sharing some information on the Wilderness Survival Merit Badge campout that we have coming up in May.

Dates: Friday May 17 through Sunday May 19
Location: Lazy D Farm near Cherokee County Airport. This is the farm of Kathy and Gerald Dobson.
Requirements: Wilderness Survival Merit Badge Worksheet

This is an opportunity to earn the Wilderness Survival Merit Badge. As the name implies, scouts will learn skills useful if they find themselves spending unexpected time outdoors. On Saturday night, Scouts participating in the merit badge, must spend a night alone without a tent or sleeping bag in a simple shelter they have constructed earlier in the day. To spend this night, scouts must be at least Tenderfoot rank. Scouts that are not Tenderfoot, may participate in the rest of the course, but just not spend the night alone away from camp.

Please begin to sign-up if you are interested. And prior to the actual campout weekend, we will be discussing more in Monday night meetings.

Please let me know if you have questions.
