Metropolitan District Spring Merit Badge Weekend, March 17-19, Camp Verdugo Oaks

Scouts may get up to two nights of camping (Friday and Saturday) at this beautiful, forested scout camp near Lake Castaic (about a one-hour drive), or come for the day on Saturday.

Scouts will camp and cook with their troops since this event is in place of the Spring camporee.  Individual scouts may come for the day for merit badges classes but we cannot accommodate single campers.  If coming for the day, you must bring your own lunch.

Cost of $40 per person includes camping fees and merit badges OR $20 day fee includes merit badges.

When signing up for the camp out, under each Scout's name you can indicate ONE all-day merit badge or TWO half-day merit badges.  Classes will fill up fast so sign up early to get your first choices!

All-day merit badge is 8:30am to 5:30pm with a one-hour lunch break.  Half-day merit badges are either 8:30-12:30 or 1:30-5:30.

Counselors for Camping and Cooking merit badges will also be available to sign off partials or evaluate in-camp meals.
