LATE REGISTRATION ON DATE OF EVENT - Scouts who register on the date of the event will be registered only after every other Scout from all other units have been registered and scheduled for classes.  The Scout can then register for any merit badge classes with availability.

 

This activity is for Scouts from Fleur de Lis District. Troops or Scouts from other districts may be allowed if availability exists. Contact Ken Klemm at 504-453-1288 if a Scout from your troop would like to attend.

 

SCHEDULE OF DAY'S EVENTS

8:30 a.m.

Scoutmaster picks up schedule from registration.

Each Scoutmaster or designated leader will receive a list of the Scouts and the requirements completed for each merit badge at the conclusion of the college.  For those troops who would like completed merit badge cards, Scouts should ask the counselor to complete the card at the end of class. Counselors should return the completed card to the Scout at the end of class.  It is the Scout’s responsibility to have the card signed and returned. The Scout should give the signed card to his Scoutmaster or Troop Advancement Chair.

NOTE TO SCOUTMASTERS:  If your troop or a Scout does not pre-register, they or he will have to take what classes remain available and no special arrangements can be promised. The College staff will, of course, do its best to help. You must register and pay online at the event.  No payment will be accepted at the event.

Merit badge classes may be cancelled on the day of the event if the counselor cannot attend at the last minute or if less than three Scouts sign up in advance. This situation does not happen often, but, in the event of a cancellation, Scouts may take other badges.

8:45 a.m.:  Opening Ceremony: A brief opening ceremony will take place in the first floor auditorium prior to the first morning classes.

9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.:  Merit badge classes held as per schedule.

12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m.:  Lunch provided.  Fingerprinting merit badge class and Life-to-Eagle Seminar.

All final paperwork must be returned to a counselor at the scheduled time so that counselors may begin grading the scouts and completing the merit badge forms.

Cancellation Policy
The following policy statement is applicable to all council and district activities where a fee is collected by the Southeast Louisiana Council. Online convenience fees (if applicable) are not refundable. All activities are considered non-refundable, unless there is a medical emergency or a death in the immediate family. Refund requests will only be considered if made in writing. A service charge of twenty-five percent (25%) of the activity fee will be assessed on all refunds to cover the costs incurred in preparation of the activity and processing the refund. Written refund requests must be submitted prior to the start of any event. Any requests after the activity will be considered only for personal illness or family emergencies. No refund requests will be accepted after ten (10) days following the end of the activity. Consideration for a full (minus charges and costs incurred) refund will be considered for special hardship cases and for advanced-level training courses such as Wood Badge. For major activities that require a non-refundable deposit, such as council contingents to the National Jamboree and Philmont, a full refund less the non-refundable deposit will be considered based on the time of the request and the council’s ability to fill the slot with another participant. If the slot is not able to be filled, no refund will be available. No refunds of any fees are available until 30 days after the event. Refund checks will be issued to the individual or entity paying the original fee within 30 days of receipt of the request pending its approval. Fees are only transferable within the same unit to a Scout or adult leader not currently registered for that specific activity. If an activity is canceled or postponed due to weather, every effort will be made to reschedule the activity. If an activity is canceled and the participant cannot participate during the alternate date, the full fee will be refunded minus any service fees and costs incurred by the event prior to the cancellation. This amount may vary from event to event. Send all refund requests to the Program Director at: tracy.jones@scouting.org.
