Cole Canoe Base Summer Camp Q&A
I’m not sure what you mean by prerequisites? For example, my son has chosen Orienteering as one of his camp activities. I printed out the requirements for this badge but it doesn’t have anything about prerequisites. Where do I find these?
Cole Canoe Base provides a prerequisite list for the merit badges they offer. The list can be found at the link below.
Not all activities for a merit badge can be completed at Summer Camp. So, they publish a list of prerequisites that can be completed before Summer camp.
You need the current merit badge worksheet. For orienteering they listed items 7, 8 and 9. If possible, these activities should be completed before visiting summer camp. If you get the pre-reqs out of the way your scout will be able to get the Merit Badge while at summer camp. When completing pre-requisites please make sure the scouting activity is documented. You can bring the merit badge workbook, any event documentation and/or photos to Summer Camp. The merit badge coordinator will be able to sign off on the requirements with this documentation.
