The Iron Horse Merit Badge College takes place August 18, 2012. The day-long event consists of two sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Most classes are offered at both sessions, but not all, so please note the session time for each class. The program is open to all Scouts. Classes include Eagle-required and elective merit badges. NOTE: Eagle-required classes are limited to Scouts who are First Class rank and above as of the day of the program.
Registration for counselors opens July 2nd. Registration for all other Scouts begins July 9th. The registration fee is $15 per Scout whether attending one or both sessions. Some classes require additional fees for special materials, and those are noted in the "Class Fee" column. Fees are non-refundable once registration closes. Registration closes July 31st, and all fees are due no later than August 15th. Detailed payment instructions are described below.
Scouts will need the proper Merit Badge book. Look carefully at the requirements each class will cover, and take note in particular of any requirements listed as pre-work. In most cases this work is necessary to complete some or all of the requirements covered in class. Scouts should bring the pre-work to class so the counselor can evaluate it for proper credit, and so the Scout can use it as needed in Class.
