Breaking News – No Law Merit Badge at Summer Camp

To All Scouts signed up for LAW Merit Badge:

You all just got more free time during the day at camp.

Law has been cancelled for this summer camp. There are a lot of moving parts to the crime drama and mock courtroom trial that we produce at camp. Unfortunately, many of those people involved will not be going to camp (they are going to the Jamboree instead of camp), or were not available for preparation (they were gone to Sea Base during prep time). If we can’t do it well, we shouldn’t do it at all.

Rick Hayes and I talked last Monday night and we agreed that if we cannot do it up to the usual standards, we should wait and do it next year. There is a possibility that we might do it in the fall at a regular campout but that is not a sure thing. It’s more fun to do at camp.

If you have already completed some of the written requirements, save them. You can use them later when we do it.

So, bottom line: No Law Merit Badge at this summer camp.
