Description: The 2004 Spring National Eagle Scout Association (NESA)
Advancement Day will be held on this date at Campbell High School in
Smyrna, GA. Classes in the following merit badges will be offered:
Citizenship in the Community
Citizenship in the Nation
Citizenship in the World
SPECIAL NOTE: PERSONAL FITNESS IS LIMITED TO 100 SCOUTS!!
Scouts should list 1st and 2nd choice in case Personal Fitness fills up!
*Must have a current medical form or physical for the class.
At previous NESA Advancement Days, there have also been two Adult
Training Sessions available for any Adult Leaders or Parents who are not
assisting in the merit badge instruction. While these may be offered,
they are not listed on this version of the 2004 Spring NESA Advancement
Day Information Package. This version of the information package sent
to me also does not contain a schedule for the day and a Registration
Roster Form. I suggest that you go to the 2003 Fall NESA Advancement
Day Information Package to get some idea what the schedule for the day
will likely be and modify this package's Registration Roster for this
event unless you can obtain a more up-to-date version of this package by
the March 5, 2004 on-time registration deadline. This package can
currently be found at:
Note: As with any merit badge clinic, summer camp, or just instruction
with a single merit badge counselor, it is ultimately the responsibility
of each unit to confirm that each youth who takes a merit badge actually
passes off the requirements. If the merit badge requirements say tell
something, do something, demonstrate something, write something, etc.,
the youth needs to actually pass the requirement; no more, no less.
>From past experience, due to the sheer number of youth per instructorat this event, youth may receive information about the merit badge
subject from very knowledgeable counselors, but not actually pass the
requirements as written. (The more adult leaders that help with the
event, the less likely this will be the case.) Each youth may have to
later actually complete some of the merit badge requirements with adults
in their unit who are REGISTERED to teach the merit badge or other BSA
REGISTERED merit badge counselors.
