Saturday, May 4th and 5th was the council’s Merit Badge Marathon. Over 2,000 Scouts and Scouters attended this great event that highlighted 26 different merit badges and lots of Cub Scout activities. Horsemanship and Cooking were big hits, as well as the three Citizenships and Communication badges. My son loved the Signaling merit badge and wanted to showing me all he had learned. But for me the best part of the event was spending time with Harry in our new tent! Got to love camping with your favorite 12 year old. If you didn’t have a chance to attend, come next time. Besides Outing being an important part of Scouting, time with your favorite Scout makes events like these even more important.
