Horsemanship Merit Badge Class
Date: September 14, 2019 - September 14, 2019 | Time: 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
We are proud to announce our partnership with the St. Andrews University in Laurinburg to offer the Horsemanship Merit Badge. Scouts will meet at the St. Andrews University Equestrian Center, take a tour, then participate in some activities to cover all requirements of the merit badge. All Scouts should attend in Class A uniform and bring along note taking materials. A merit badge book, workbook, lunch, and blue card will be provided as part of the registration fee.
Participants are required to have long pants, closed toe shoe with a heel (no hiking boots), Class A uniform. The horses at the Equestrian Center have a 180 lbs. weight limit, if a scout is over the limit they can not participate. Be aware and prepared of potential allergies with animal dander and bees/ insects since this course will be outdoors. Any scouts that do not fit the dress or weight requirements are unable to participate.
Refund Policy Fees are generally not refundable; however they are transferable to other Scouts in the same unit. Full refunds will only be considered if requested in writing using the Activity Transfer/Refund Request Form a minimum of two weeks prior to the start of Council organized activity (cub camp, merit badge days, jamboree, Philmont, etc.) and are subject to approval by the Council Camping Committee.

Requests for partial refunds must be received in writing by the Program Director no later than 10 days after the conclusion of activity and will be reviewed by the Council Camping Committee.
