My name is Dan Hardesty and I will be the Assistant Scoutmaster- Administration for the next SEALS Course.
We are very excited to announce the next SEALS Course . It will be held March 8-10 at Belk Scout Camp. If your Troop has never participated in the SEALS Course, please consider attending this session. S.E.A.L.S. (Scouts Excited About Leadership Skills) is designed to improve the leadership skills of the scouts in your troop. Participants will leverage the foundation from troop leadership training and will be shown how to apply and use leadership skills and Scout Spirit effectively in a scout led troop.
You can find all the details at the SEALS website, seals.mcc-bsa.org. Look in the "Documents" section. Registration has officially started so you can start submitting your registration to the Scout Office immediately.

I will be starting a personal fitness merit badge class on Sat, June 2, 2012. We will meet at the Carmel Middle School Track at 9:00 a.m. During the first meeting we will review the requirements and perform the base line testing (1 mile run, situps, pushups, chinups and flexibility test). After this meeting, the scout will need to submit a program for aerobic, strength and flexibility exercises covering a 90 day period for approval. Upon approval they are to complete the program. We will then meet again in late July to monitor their progress and review the other requirements. We will have a final meeting in early-mid Sept to perform the end testing (1 mile run, situps, pushups, chinups and flexibility test).
If you son is interested in participating, have them send me an email or contact me via phone. If there are any questions, let me know.
