Troops gather in Bolingbrook, Illinois to earn merit badges. About 900 Scouts attended this event, some camping, some for the day. Friday evening they had a climbing wall and ice skating at an indoor ice arena. In the morning Scouts attended different merit badge classes they had chosen in advance. Prerequisites had to be completed in advance. Meals were provided. Saturday evening we made a visit to the giant Bass Pro Shop, then went to the Pelican Harbor Water Park with giant slides, tube river, and pool. It's a great event that included Camping, Merit Badges, Ice Skating, Climbing, and a Water Park. It provides a challenge for advancement and a lot of fun.
