Winnsboro Scouts host ‘Extravaganza’

Winnsboro’s Boy Scout Troop 49 is hosting a merit badge extravaganza Aug. 25-26. These unique classes are made possible by the support of our community. Camping will be available on the grounds of the S.C. Railroad Museum, so come spend the weekend.

Registration is now open on meritbadge.info.

If you haven’t previously used this site, you will need to set up an account, then you can register your scouts for classes. Note: If your Scout participated last year, an account has already been set up for you (use your e-mail address and “Troop49” as the password). Please also register for “Campsite” if you plan to camp at the SC Railroad Museum and for “food” if you would like to purchase a pizza lunch for Saturday.

Note that a CPR class is being offered, which is open to both scouts and adults; more information regarding additional opportunities for adults will be provided as details are worked out.

If you have any difficulty registering, or if you have any questions, please e-mail Laura Bost at [email protected] Class sizes are limited, so we encourage you to register early to ensure your Scout gets his first choice. There are currently 23 different items listed as options for the merit badge. Some activities will take place at Richard Winn, VC Summer and some at the Railroad Museum, including overnight camping for the scouts.
