    Lightbulb BSA Hammock Merit Badge - Draft #1 Available for review

    Update 4/20: Draft #1

    I am the Scoutmaster of Troop 752 in Canton, Ga. Our Troop is about 91% Tree Hangers and we want to continue to encourage new members and other Scouts towards the advantages of hammock camping.

    Someone in the troop came up with an idea to offer an [Unofficial] Hammock Camping Merit Badge, and I thought it was such a great idea I wanted to ask for the Forums help in creating it.

    So, If you were coming up with requirements for the BSA [Unofficial] Hammock Camping Merit Badge to teach scouts how to hammock Camp, what would they be?

    1. Show the parts of an equipped camping hammock
    2. Show how to properly hang a hammock
    a. Show how to protect the tree from damage
    b. Demonstrate 2 techniques to fasten your hammock to a tree

    So, what do you got? Anyone care to help a Scoutmaster create the first (Unofficial) BSA Hammock Camping Merit Badge?
