Merit Badge Clinic & Leaders' Forum
A site just for Boy Scouts, Merit Badge Counselors, and Scout Leaders
Welcome to the home page of SnowHawk, the Merit Badge Clinic sponsored by the Milwaukee South Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
Location: Stake Center – 9600 W. Grange Ave., Hales Corners, WI
Days: January 9, 2016 & February 27, 2016
Time: 8:30a – 1:00p
Registration Deadline: December 20, 2015
The clinic is broken up into 2 days. On the first day of the clinic, the scouts and counselors meet one another and discuss preliminary topics related to the badge they are working on. Then, there is at least a month gap before the second day of Snowhawk. On that second day, the scouts meet again with their same counselor and present any assignments required by the merit badge, and finish any discussion items related to the badge.
A scout can register for up to 3 badges in the clinic. Each day of the clinic is divided into 3 sessions, corresponding to the badge(s) chosen. The scout attends the same session on both days of the clinic.
Fred Scout wants to take Auto Maintenance, Communications, and First Aid. All these badges meet in each of the sessions. He signs up for all three, and is scheduled for Auto Maintenance in the 1st session, First Aid in the 2nd session, and Communications in the 3rd session. On the first day of the clinic, he will meet with the Auto Maintenance counselor in the first session for 90 minutes. After that is over, he switches to First Aid for Session 2, also 90 minutes. A break gives a chance for him to eat the lunch he brought. Finally, in his third session he meets with the Communications counselor. There are other scouts in each of these sessions. The groups vary by session. Some of the badge requirements have now been met. Others he will have to work on in the intervening weeks. When the second day of the clinic rolls around, he attends the sessions in the same order where his work is reviewed, and additional requirements are covered. Provided he has done what is necessary, he can complete the badges. Should Fred need additional time, the counselor is available after the clinic on an individually arranged basis.
