In partnership with the Sea Scouts sponsored by the Utah Lake Yacht Club, we are excited to offer a Sailing Merit Badge Adventure at Camp Jeremiah Johnson. Units will begin their learning experience Friday evening with a real sailboat, preparing for their sailing experience on Saturday!
Because the boys will need to travel to the the lake on Saturday morning, we highly recommend that the entire unit signs up for this adventure. The leaders will need to provide the transportation on Saturday.
Scouts will continue to work on non-water related requirements at camp Friday night and Saturday morning. At noon they will begin their sailing activities.
Please be advised that part of sailing merit badge requires that they participate in capsize drills. The water will be cold! Please bring a change of clothes and towels.
Troops can now combine their monthly campout with merit badge work with no extra work for the adult leaders, and great opportunities for the youth.
Troops will need to prepare their own dinner and breakfast as part of their camping experience. It is also recommended that they bring a lunch to eat while working on the water activities. Meals are not provided at the camp.
Cost: The cost of this badge includes access to the boats, any needed supplies for sailing, etc.
The camp general store will be open should you need snacks or basic camping supplies. Please bring a filled out merit badge blue card for each scout, or you may purchase them in the camp general store.
