SCOUT PREPARATION Many classes have pre-requisites which must be done if you wish to complete the badge during class. Some classes also have age and/or rank requirements. 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 Merit Badge pamphlet. Also, Scouts are required to BRING a SIGNED Blue Card from the Scoutmaster.
Registration for Merit Badge University is online only. Open enrollment starts February 6, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. You can go online at least a week prior to open enrollment date and build your troops roster. Troops, not individual scouts or parents should do registration. Please designate one person from your troop to operate the registration process.
