Description

Registration: Registration by Troop is required. Please try to have one person per Troop register your scouts. Open enrollment will begin on the above stated date. Registration fee is $10.00 per Scout per course. All payments must be received via PAYPAL or by snail mail by March 1, 2017 to be eligible. Otherwise, we will drop your online registration and will allow other Scouts to register in your place. Fees are non-refundable but can be transferred to another scout. MB Counselors require student or parent e-mail or phone for coordination. 



Uniform: The Full B.S.A. Class A uniform is the official uniform for the day. The merit badge sash may also be worn. Those taking part in fitness badges - please bring appropriate clothing to change into.



Code of Conduct: The Scout Oath, the Law, and the Outdoor Code shall be the guiding behavior for the Merit Badge Day. A Scout whose conduct is not consistent with the code will be directed to leave the school 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.



Transportation: The Troop Leaders must coordinate arrival and departure time for transportation. Troops need to make certain that they have adequate transportation for their Scouts. All transportation to and from the Merit Badge Day must be arranged within your troop. Encourage everyone to carpool.



Clean Up: A Scout is Clean. Troop Leaders 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 Day will largely depend on how neat we leave the Center. All garbage must be properly disposed into designated containers or carried out.



Security: Because the public may have access to the School, units will need to exercise their own vigilance. Report any incidents to the event organizers.
