Sid Richardson Scout Ranch 2017 Leader Guide

Merit Badge Option Worksheet – Have youth complete this worksheet with their top three choices to make entering merit badge selection into Tentaroo easier.  Please have them note classes that require multiple Class Periods.

Merit Badge Selection instructions.  Use these instructions to guide you through the process of selecting merit badges.


  1. Your scout is NOT enrolled in a class until you check out.  If you  have a large number of boys, you may want to check out in between entries to ensure you do not lose information.

While the youth will have the opportunity to dive underwater in the camp’s pool, this class is NOT a PADI certification program because youth will not participate in an open water dive.

In order to participate in the Scuba program, parents and youth must read the Youth Diving Flip Chart and complete the following forms. Please note the Red box outlined on the BSA Medical (part C) which needs to be indicated by your doctor in order to participate in Scuba.
