As a part of the  most recent Merit Badge Saturday, the participants have been asked to take part in the following to complete the merit badge:


 7a. Take part in an emergency service project either real or a practice drill, with a Scouting unit or a  community agency.

 7b. Prepare a plan for mobilizing your troop when needed to do emergency service, If there is already a plan, explain it.  


 We will switch one of our planned activities to complete an emergency service project and a troop mobilization plan between now and the next MBS (May 20th).  Information on how to run an emergency service project and make a plan are available online.

Scouts must come prepared with teams of 2-3 people. Each team must have a recipe and bring the necessary ingredients for that recipe. The Scouting leadership will provide the basic cooking utensils. If a special utensil is needed that team should let their leader know prior to the event. Because of the time constraint, each team must choose a recipe that can be prepared in 50 minutes or less, or prep some of the ingredients before arriving for the activity. Activity at 7:00 pm.

Teams will be judged on:

  • Taste

  • Appearance

  • Texture

  • Nutrient Balance 

  • Value

  • Level of Difficulty

(Preparing a more difficult dish does not necessarily mean a better score. If a Scout demonstrates appropriate knowledge and skill they will be awarded points for difficulty).
