Sponsor Information
This is the 5th Annual Merit Badge Clinic For Troop 405 in Janesville, Wi.

We would like to Welcome you all to this event.



Join Troop 405 for an outstanding day of merit badge classes and learning. All Scouts local and beyond are invited to attend. It is our sole intent to create an environment where Scouts have the opportunity to continue their advancement and expand their knowledge while earning merit badges. It is not the intent to create a “Merit Badge Factory” that requires minimal to no work on the Scouts behalf. Scouts who do not meet the requirements as outlined in the BSA handbooks will receive partials reflecting satisfactory completed components with the remaining to be made up within their own troop or with a local certified counselor. All of our counselors are experts in their respective field either by trade, advanced degree or both. They are volunteering their time to share their knowledge with the Scouts and we are very blessed with their passion to teach and share their valuable time.

Lunch will be from 11:45 to 12:45.  The afternoon sessions will from 12:45pm to 4:00pm. The registration cost is $35.00. There are a few merit badges that have extra material fees.  Please check when registering.




Scout Requirements

To earn a merit badge we require Scouts to participate fully in class and complete all pre-requisite requirements.  We require the Merit Badge Work Sheets found at http://usscouts.org/mb/worksheets/list.asp to be completed prior to event.  Scouts who do not complete requirements either at the clinic or before will still have a chance to learn new skills and be on their way to completing the merit badge.



Requested Help From Scout Leaders 

Due to the new Youth Protection Guidelines we require two deep leadership in every class room.  If you are a leader with current Youth Protection Training, you can sign up to assist with the 2 deep leadership.  We will assign you to a classroom to provide the 2nd trained leader.  You will recieve your lunch and a Merit Badge Clinic patch at no cost for volunteering.  Please sign up for the "All Day" session of  "ABA Attendance by Adult" in the activity sign-up.





Leader/Parent Recommendations

As leader(s)/parent(s), you can help your Scouts be successful by registering them for appropriate badges. Younger Scouts should be discouraged from pursuing advanced badges they may be unable to complete or appreciate the knowledge being shared. Troop leaders should know the abilities of their troop members and should spend the required time prior to the MBC preparing each Scout for his session. Most badges have pre-requisite’s that must be accomplished before the clinic day.  Please make sure the Scouts do their homework. It is important that Scouts know the importance of working hard in class and cooperating with counselors and classmates.



Merit Badge Completion

We offer a variety of hands-on quality merit badge classes. Each merit badge class is staffed with professional/expert instructors in the subject matter. Scouts are required to read the Merit Badge Booklet and finish all pre-requisites before attending the Merit Badge Clinic.

The Merit Badge Counselor will give credit for completed requirements only. The Scout should complete all other requirements not covered in class or completed prior to attending at his own pace with his own troop and local counselors.



Class Notes:

          
Citizenship in the World: Scouts must bring merit badge book, worksheet and pencil or pen. Since the entire MB will be completed, the class will be FULL 3 hours of work. A minimum of 7th grade reading level is recommended as well as the ability to summarize and write manually.  Scouts needing help with these skills are welcome if accompanied by an adult to assist them.



          First Aid:  Bring your personal first aid kit, your scout book. Read the First Aid Merit Badge book fully before coming to the class.   The merit badge counselor, Monica Delabarre, has need of assistance from other   leaders who have first aid knowledge. For each leader volunteering to assist you will recieve a Merit Badge Clinic patch a lunch at no cost to you. Contact Monica at e-mail ibeme@charter.net to make arrangements.



          Leatherwork: Bring merit badge booklet and read it before coming to class.  Be prepared for 1a-b, 2a-d and 5a. Requirements 3 and 4 are planned be completed in class, (depends on how quickly the scout works.)  If they are not completed they will both get started and they should be easy to finish on their own. 



          Medicine:  This class requires that scouts be in high school because concepts will be difficult for younger scouts to understand.  Bring the Merit Badge Wookbook and have it filled out as completely as possible. Historical Figures will be covered quickly.  Time will be spent on case studies. Requirement #10 must be completed before attending class.



           Skating:  Scouts will need to be transported to the Janesville Ice Rink for this class.  Pre-requisites are 1a,1b and 2a1-4 for the Ice Skating Option.  Fill out the worksheet for all those requirements in class.  Bring your own skates or money for skate rental.   Money will also be required for entry to the Ice Rink.  This class is not recommended for scouts who do not already the ice skating skills required for completion although any scout who is comfortable ice skating is welcome.



          Traffic Safety:   Fingerprinting and Trafic Safety are combined in the PM session.  Scouts who sign up for Traffic Safety will also have the opportunity to earn Fingerpring MB.  Bring Blue Cards for both merit badges. There are no pre-requisites for Fingerprinting and requirement #5 should be completed before coming to class for Traffic Safety.



          Truck Transportation:   Pre-requisites are 1, 2a-c, 3, 5a-b, 6, 7, 9 and 10.  Fill out the worksheet for these requirements.  Requirements 4a-e and 8a-d are planned to get completed in class.

The section on knife sharpening is vital.  Pre-requisites are 1b and 2a.  Bring your Totin' Chip Card and your troop leader should initial 1b on your blue card or confirm with a note that you have shown the first aid for injuries that could occur while wood carving.
