Norseland Scout Camp
8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Norseland Scout Camp is in need of clean up; Scouts are in need of merit badges. Working together creates a
"WIN WIN EVENT"
Join us on Saturday, May 4, 2019, from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. for a half day merit badge session and a half day clean up session. The weather will dictate which will come first; merit badges or clean up.
Merit Badges - $10 per Scout; class size limited to 30 Scouts per merit badge. Scouts will participate in the Norseland clean up project opposite the time they are in merit badge classes.
There will be three merit badges offered. For the $10 fee, Scouts can choose one merit badge to work on for half a day. Choice of merit badges will include:
- Forestry - this course will be led by Deb Groebner. In the Forestry merit badge Scouts will learn how humans have always depended upon forests for everything from food, fuel, and shelter, to myths, legends and music.
- Composite Materials - will be led by key management of the Cambria Company of Le Sueur, MN. This merit badge will give Scouts a chance to learn about composites: what they are, how they are made, and how they are used.
- Citizenship in the Nation - an Eagle Scout required merit badge that will be taught by State Representative Jim Hagedorn. This merit badge teaches how to be a good citizen of the Nation; the duties, rights and responsibilities associated with being a citizen.
Clean Up - Adult cost is $7 (to cover lunch)
While Scouts are working on merit badges, adults will spend the day cleaning up Norseland. The lodges needs cleaning, brush needs to be cut, firewood cut, bushes trimmed, etc. Please bring gardening/landscaping tools such as loppers, small pruners, rakes, saws, shovels, wheel barrows, and anything else that may come in handy. Scouts will also be participating in clean up opposite their merit badge time.
Any troop assisting with clean up is welcome to camp at Norseland for the weekend at no additional charge. Food and leadership is the responsibility of the troop. Sites are first come first served.
On Saturday night, beginning at dark, will be the council-wide Order of the Arrow call-out. Details for this event will be announced later.
Many hands make light work - so let's have many hands at Norseland May 4th!
