Spring Camporee this year combines great service with learning about railroading. Activities allow every qualified Boy Scout to earn the railroading merit badge without pre-requisite work. This is Casey Koutstaal’s Venturing Summit Award Project.
Scouts will arrive at the event location and visit several stations. Youth will be teaching various merit badge requirements to other youth. They will be chaperoned by trained professionals and enthusiasts. The “learning” scout should interact with the counselor and upon completion have the blue card signed by the counselor. The “learning” scout should move from station to station (including the train ride) until all minimum requirements have been satisfied. Scouts are encouraged to enjoy all booths, even those that are beyond the minimum requirements. If you are unable to get through all the booths during the designatied time, there will be an opportunity to complete missing requirements at the campground.
