• Please plan to attend for the whole weekend.

• Please note that not all of the merit badges can be completed during the course of the weekend.  NOVA Awards all have requirements that can not be completed during the weekend and youth are welcome to complete the remaining requirements before or after the event. Additionally, completion for some merit badges, such are Astronomy, are weather dependent. Merit Badge instructors can sign off on merit badge work completed outside of class as long as youth can show proof of work and follow the merit badge requirements (if it says "write an essay", show the essay to the instructor, while if it says "tell your instructor", make sure to tell the instructor either in person or via phone with your parents present.)

• Campsites will be assigned “first come, first serve” at check-in. 

• Troop shall provide at least two adults for each 8 boys attending STEM.  For youth not attending with a troop, a parent or guardian must be present at the Weekend.  Provisional Scouts are NOT allowed.
