Due to the hands-on nature of the training, the Home Repairs Specialty Camp is limited to the first 64 Scouts and 12 adults who sign up. A wait-list will be maintained in case of cancellations.

Adults attending will be asked to help provide supervision in the campsites as well as volunteer for shifts in the kitchen, but will be permitted to participate in classes and will receive all of the same materials as the participating Scouts.
