You are receiving this message because you have elected to go on the Wilderness Survival overnighter. While the main purpose of the overnighter is to allow you a chance to build a shelter and sleep in it, you also have the opportunity to work on the full merit badge itself. This will involve filling out the worksheet, and being prepared to demonstrate and/or discuss those items required in the Merit Badge.


To help you along, here are some web links for the worksheet, the manual (where all answers can be found), and a few others that will give you ideas on how to start fires without matches and build different types of shelters.

What to bring:
Please plan for a typical campout situation (eg all your typical camping items). In addition to those items, you'll want to make sure you bring anything you may need for completing your shelter and starting your fire. I do plan to have some items, but I will not be providing rope, tarps, etc.

Food:
We will cook our own, as if it were backpack camping. This essentially means boiling water.

Travel:
Saturday - 0830 - Assemble at the church
Saturday - 0900 - Leave from the church
Sunday - 1030 - Pickup

**We will be stopping for breakfast on the way out, bring money***
