Merit Badge College


Join us on Facebook too!

May 31 - June 2, 2024

Franck Road Campsite, Caswell, Maine

We're excited to announce that the North Star District will be hosting a Spring Camporee and Merit Badge College May 31-June 2, 2024! Please join us on the Franck Road in Caswell, Maine for a weekend of camping and fun! This location offers 3 cabins for classes, a pond for fishing, hiking trails, gaga ball pit, open area for camping and more. We just ask everyone to PRAY for great weather!

LEADER GUIDE:  Click here to download the Leader Guide with all the details.

REGISTRATION: To register your scouts, click here. The registration form has been modified to allow up to 20 scouts to be registered on the same form, in different sections. This will require you to click through some blank screens if you don't have 20 scouts but it's easier than creating a new registration for each scout. I hope this makes things easier for the person submitting the class selections. :) 

CUB SCOUTS will also have activities on Saturday. Check out what will be happening for them by clicking here or use the "CUB CAMP" button in the menu above. Cubs can visit on Saturday from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm. Shooting Sports with BB Gun and Archery Ranges, Outlaw Race with the Pinewood Derby Track (including the loop) and other fun is being planned! Cub families may also arrange an overnight stay with their troops, please discuss with your troop ahead of time so arrangements can be made though. 

Troop Agenda, Classes & Activities

    Each Troop should bring a main dish to share and desserts will be prepared during the Iron Chef Competition. Additional items like plates, utensils, and rolls will be provided.

  • Attire - Class A or B during the day, Class A for Campfire in the evening

  • The water source at camp has been approved as potable

  • Camp fires need to be contained in a fire pit to avoid damage to the field

  • Scouts must bring a notebook and pen/pencil to classes

  • Scouts need to bring a PREFILLED BLUE CARD for each class they plan to attend. This will save time and allow the counselors to just sign off on the completed requirements. We will have some blue cards available but you may use the link in the menu at the top of this page to download printable blue cards.

  • Please help your scouts prepare for classes by reviewing prerequisites with them to help ensure completion of the merit badge at the event.
