For this trip, we will travel to camp near the studio of metalworking artist and Troop 54 Eagle Scout Michael Saari. Mr. Saari will guide our Scouts in their choice of sheet metal or blacksmith activities. Scouts should be able to complete some requirements toward the Metalwork merit badge.

Each youth participant on this trip should complete a blue card for the merit badge in advance.
