THE HYBRID MERIT BADGE SCHEDULE SYSTEM
To serve our increasing number of campers and programs, Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan uses a combination of the Block Schedule and Hourly schedule systems. Coined as the Hybrid Schedule, it allows classes to get more in-depth and offer fun activities like field trips without disrupting the entire day’s schedule. The schedule also provides scouts more flexibility between working on Merit Badges and taking advantage of the many unique opportunities Ma-Ka-Ja- Wan offers. The Hybrid Schedule gives scouts more time to spend on doing activities around camp and less time walking around.
The Merit Badge Schedule, Daily Schedule, West Trailblazer Schedule, East Wayfinder Schedule, and Prerequisites and Costs can be found in the documents below. These documents are susceptible to change as needed, so check these documents periodically for the most recent version.
THIS IS 2018 INFORMATION BELOW. The new merit badge schedules will be finalized by mid-March, 2019. Your unit’s Camp Contact will receive an email when they are, and the links below will be updated. For now, we want you to see what the schedule normally looks like.
Please note Wayfinder is a new program area coming to East Camp and replacing the East Trailblazer Area. Wayfinder and Trailblazer Areas are equivalent programs that are offered exclusively at their respective sub-camps. For more information on each program, see the Wayfinder and Trailblazer Schedule and visit the Wayfinder and Trailblazer pages.
Coureur des Bois Program – This program will be a merit badge sign-up option.
