This is a campout for Scouts to meet requirements for the Cooking, Camping, and/or Backpacking merit badges, but they can also work on other merit badges if they wish. See Mr. Dalton for a blue card for merit badges. We will be camping at Old Man's Cave, Hocking Hills State Park in the group camping area. Scouts will need to pack their gear in backpacks and use the gear list in their BSA Handbook to determine what to take. I have plenty of backpacks I can loan, just let me know if one is needed. The site is limited to 10 people, but if we have more sign up we will get a second site beside the one we have reserved. We plan on hiking on one of the trails in the State Park, so be prepared with comfortable shoes or boots. The cost is $5.00 for the camping and the Scouts will determine the food cost based on what they plan to eat. We will meet at the cabin at 6:00 PM on Friday and plan to return mid-afternoon on Sunday.

Cutoff for this trip is April 9 so we have time for the Scouts to plan and purchase their food.
