Delevan Scout Building
Learn the basic survival skills and build a survival shelter.
This is a full uniform event. Scout must bring a blue merit badge card signed by your unit leader. Bring a bag lunch. Leader supervision is required for all events. Absolutely no walk-ins.
Prerequisites: Read the Wilderness Survival Merit Badge Pamphlet
Requirement #8: Improvise a natural shelter. Do not use a tent. For the purpose of this demonstration, use techniques that have little negative impact on the environment. Spend a night in your shelter. We will learn how to make a natural shelter at the workshop but will not sleep in it.
