Review the maps on our website and go over his class locations. There also will be information booths with directions to campus buildings.
The opening ceremony is an opportunity to celebrate the beginning of PowWow with the other Scouts attending. In years past, opening ceremonies have included speeches by BYU football players and baseball players, a paper airplane toss, and a flag ceremony. The ceremony will start at 8:00 a.m. in the Smith Fieldhouse, and classes will begin at 9:00 a.m.
Merit badge cards are not distributed at the PowWow by request of the Utah National Parks Council. Scouts are responsible to provide their own cards and have them signed by their Scoutmaster before PowWow begins. These cards can be found online or at local Scout Shops.
Review the merit badge worksheets with your Scout and finish any requirements that should be completed outside the classroom.
You have two options. You may bring your card and completed merit badge worksheets to our office at 169 HCEB (Harman Building), or you may have a Certified Merit Badge Counselor review the worksheets and sign the card.
