Sponsor Information

This years merit badge college has been revised to align with the new BSA national advancement guidlines. It will be held on one Saturday, April 1st with two sessions; morning and afternoon. Only 28 classroom appropriate merit badghes will be offered. Outdoor, camping, athletic, and summer camp appropriate or STEM badges will not be offered at this college. There will be an all day session for first year or new Scouts to help them progress in one year to First Class. 

All scouts must bring a BLUE CARD signed by their Scoutmaster to class.  At the end of the session the counselor will fill in requirements met and sign it.  The boys are responsible for their blue card at all times.

Please remind scouts to wear their Class A uniform and follow all scouting rules.

We ask that all troops have one volunteer per five scouts at the event.  Volunteers will be needed for various tasks including helping the counselors during the sessions.

This will be an all day event with two sessions; morning and afternoon. Some badges will require both sessions in order to have a positive experience.
Counselor Information
At check-in in the morning of the event, you will receive a class roster.  Please mark any scout that is absent as a "no show" on your roster.  At the end of your class, please also fill in the roster with either requirements met (per scout) or requirements not met if that is easier.  Please make sure that it is legible and understandable for the person that will enter the information into the merit badge website.

Thank you so much for volunteering your time, it is greatly appreciated!
