Sponsor Information

This merit badge college event is sponsored by the Tonkawa District Advancement Committee.


FLAG Ceremony @ 8:15 both Saturdays

The objective of the Tonkawa District Merit Badge College is to provide an opportunity for Scouts within the Tonkawa District to earn merit badges on their journey to acheiving Eagle Rank. Scouts may sign up for four merit badges that will be offered during four sessions: Session 1 (8:30 – 9:50); Session 2 (10:00 – 11:20); Lunch Break (11:20 - 12:00); Session 3 (12:00 – 1:20); and Session 4 (1:30 - 2:50).  

First Aid, Electronics, Shotgun and Environmental Science classes require that the Scouts attend back to back sessions. (i.e. all morning or all afternoon) to earn the merit badge.

Scouts must be engaged in a merit badge class at the college to be in attendance, there will be no “open slots” without a parent picking up the Scout and bringing him back later, if needed.

Class sessions are for both Saturdays and most will require some off-site work (homework) and/or field trips in order to complete all of the requirements. Scoutmasters must approve all merit badges for which their Scouts register.  Remember that attendance alone may not result in all requirements being completed. Scouts must participate and demonstrate that they have met each requirement with the merit badge counselor.

A Scoutmaster, committee member or YPT adult must be in attendance from every unit whenever a Scout from their unit is at the college.

Lunch will be served both Saturdays and is included in the price, if your Scout has specific dietary needs plan to bring a sack lunch. Lunch will consist of pizza or hot dogs, chips, water and more during the lunch break.

Counselor Information

Merit badge counselors should email Marty Robbins @ with specific questions. A class roster and workbooks for each participant will be provided.

Every merit badge counselor will need to provide the following:

  1. Completed merit badge registration form -

  2. Copy of completed youth protection training (YPT) card

  3. Copy of BSA registration card or completed adult application -

Unit Sign-up Instructions

Units will be allowed to register if they have provided MB Counselors for this event.  Contact Marty Robbins @

Each Scoutmaster will register their troop or designate one person to register all Scouts using the MERITBADGE.INFO system.  Registration will begin January 15th at 7:00 am Central Time.  Scouts are limited to only two Eagle required merit badges.

When signing up scouts please enter THEIR contact email address, not yours. Merit badge counselors email the scouts information about their merit badges and it will go to you if your email is entered for them.

Scouts will be provided a three-ring binder that contain merit badge workbooks, pens, and pencils. Scoutmasters will be required to provide Blue Cards for each Scout, with the front completed and signed by the Scoutmaster.

Payment Instructions for the Unit

The cost per Scout is $15.00 which includes a three-ring binder, merit badge workbooks, pens, pencils, and lunch. Each Scout must pay $15, even if they only sign up for one or two merit badges. Payment will be due at check in on January 27.   A $16 fee will added for the electronics merit badge to cover costs of the kits that scouts will receive.

Please make checks payable to Marty Robbins.

Please note your troop number on the check.
