Test drive the new site (in progress) at New Meritbadge.Info.Leave comments at our Facebook page.

Notice!!! Meritbadge.Info will switch to the new site with BSA validation Friday morning March 13th.

If you wish to start using this site today, click here to launch

Adults must enter their BSA Number, DOB, First and Last name as it appears on their BSA ID card. We will query BSA and get back an answer. At this point one of three things can happen:
1) Your registration is verified - you can continue using normally
2) You are not registered or your registration has lapsed - your prior rights are revoked and you get the read-only screens that you see before your login
3) You are registered but your YPT has expired - your prior rights are revoked and you get the read-only screens that you see before your login

You have had at least two months to get yourself registered and complete YPT training. If you feel your validation is not working, send us an email with the four data items listed and we will validate your entry.

We have no control over what is on file at BSA. If everything matches your BSA ID card, there should be no issues. If not, your validation will fail.

Why are we doing this?
1. To provide higher security and validation of all adult users.
2. To clean up the mess we've accumulated via 15 years of poor user data entry.  

How will we do this? 

What should you do? 
Login to and copy your BSA ID Number then update your profile on  Let others in your unit know they should do the same.  We are giving you 2.5 months advanced notice to make this work.

PARTICIPANT EVENT WAIVER AND RELEASE FORM IS REQUIRED BY FAIRFIELD BAPTIST CHURCH.  Please note we encourage carpooling. Download Waiver and release form here.

The Merit Badge Clinic  serves as an annual Quality Program that helps Scouts learn about different fields of knowledge by recruiting experienced professional counselors and maintaining a limited classroom size.

We are a guest of Fairfield Baptist Church. There shall be NO littering, defacing or destruction of any structure. Our behavior will determine whether or not we will do this event again.

Many Instructors/Merit Badge Counselors will EMAIL class information prior to the Merit Badge Clinic event. In the spirit of BSA Youth Protection guidelines, please provide an email address for the Scouts parents rather than the individual Scout. The Scoutmaster should not use his email address to register all boys in his Troop.


We offer hands-on quality merit badge classes. Each Merit Badge Classes or Elective Classes is staffed with professional/expert instructors in the subject matter.


1.) Each unit must provide one adult for every 4 boys who participate. This will help us with crowd control, as well as insure quality of results within the classroom environment.

2.) Scouts must have prior approval from their Scoutmaster before attending.

3.) Scouts must behave in a Scout-like manner. Disruptive youth will be removed from the group and either spend the remainder of the day with their Scoutmaster or be picked up by their parent/guardian.

4.) The Unit adults are responsible for the scouts who attend.


The Fall Merit Badge Clinic committee will reserve the right to limit or cancel any class.  Merit Badges clasess to be offered are subject to change based on Instructor availability and class minimums.

Registration by TROOP is REQUIRED. Open and ending enrollment will be limited to the dates above indicated.


Scouts are admitted to classes on a first come, first serve basis via the online registration system. There is no waiting list for any of the merit badge classes. Should you encounter booked classes, please monitor this website in case seats become available.


Scouts are strongly encouraged to read the Merit Badge Workbooks and worksheets and finish all pre-requisites before attending the  event. They are also expected to provide the parents' email address for the Instructor/Merit Badge Counselor communication.


The First Aid Station is available to all scouts and Leaders in the Fellowship Hall.


The Full B.S.A. Class A/Field Dress uniform is the official uniform for the day.


The Scout Oath, the Law, and the Outdoor Code. A Scout whose conduct is not consistent with the code will be directed to leave the grounds immediately. Adequate supervision must be provided by each participating unit. Discipline is the responsibility of the Scoutmaster or other assigned leaders in charge of the troop.


The Scoutmaster must coordinate arrival and departure time for transportation. Boy Scouts need to make certain that they have adequate transportation for their Scouts. ALL transportation TO and FROM the Merit Badge Clinic event must be arranged within your Troop. Encourage everyone to carpool. Leaders may not leave Scouts by themselves to be picked up by parents at a later time. We will not render sitting services.


A Scout is clean. Scoutmasters, please coordinate with your Troop to clean the premises and to keep the classrooms in the same condition as found. Future offerings of the Merit Badge University will largely depend on how neat we leave the place. All garbage must be properly disposed into designated containers or carried out.


Because the public has access to the church, units will need to exercise their own vigilance. Report any incidents to the event organizers.


All Scouts must bring to class the following:


The Instructor/Merit Badge Counselor will give credit for completed requirements ONLY. The Scout should complete all other requirements not covered in class.  Class work will be followed by individual Scout’s projects and his ability to fulfill all requirements.


After the event, if you have any questions, please visit your unit "Scout Registration" page and "Print Advancement Results".  Direct contact regarding advancement should be forwarded to Audrey Bagby, Troop Committee Co-Chair at


Many classes have pre-requisites, which must be done if you wish to complete the Merit Badge during class. Unless indicated otherwise, all other requirements for the Merit Badge should be covered in class. For ALL classes, Scouts are required to READ and BRING the worksheets.


The activity fee is per Scout, per class.  Additional fees for materials are identified for designated classes.

After registering, payment must be submitted via PayPal within 24 hours.  Registration may be canceled if payment is not received.
