Sponsor Information

This is the Annual Merit Badge Event For Troop 419 in Janesville, Wi.

We would like to Welcome you all to this event.



Join Troop 419 for an outstanding day of merit badge classes and learning. All Scouts local and beyond are invited to attend. It is our sole intent to create an environment where Scouts have the opportunity to continue their advancement and expand their knowledge while earning merit badges. It is not the intent to create a “Merit Badge Factory” that requires minimal to no work on the Scouts behalf. Scouts who do not meet the requirements as outlined in the BSA handbooks will receive partials reflecting satisfactory completed components with the remaining to be made up within their own troop or with a local certified counselor. All of our counselors are experts in their respective field either by trade, advanced degree or both. They are volunteering their time to share their knowledge with the Scouts and we are very blessed with their passion to teach and share their valuable time.

Scout Requirements

To earn a merit badge we require Scouts to participate fully in class and complete all pre-requisite requirements.  We require the Merit Badge Work Sheets found at http://usscouts.org/mb/worksheets/list.asp to be completed prior to event.  Scouts who do not complete requirements either at the clinic or before will still have a chance to learn new skills and be on their way to completing the merit badge.



Requested Help From Scout Leaders 

Per Youth Protection Guidelines we require two deep leadership in every class room.  If you are a leader with current Youth Protection Training, you can sign up to assist with the 2 deep leadership.  We will assign you to a classroom to provide the 2nd trained leader. Please sign up for the "All Day" session of  "ABA Attendance by Adult" in the activity sign-up.





Leader/Parent Recommendations

As leader(s)/parent(s), you can help your Scouts be successful by registering them for appropriate badges. Younger Scouts should be discouraged from pursuing advanced badges they may be unable to complete or appreciate the knowledge being shared. Troop leaders should know the abilities of their troop members and should spend the required time prior to the MBC preparing each Scout for his session. Most badges have pre-requisite’s that must be accomplished before the clinic day.  Please make sure the Scouts do their homework. It is important that Scouts know the importance of working hard in class and cooperating with counselors and classmates.



Merit Badge Completion

We offer a variety of hands-on quality merit badge classes. Each merit badge class is staffed with professional/expert instructors in the subject matter. Scouts are required to read the Merit Badge Booklet and finish all pre-requisites before attending the Merit Badge Clinic.

The Merit Badge Counselor will give credit for completed requirements only. The Scout should complete all other requirements not covered in class or completed prior to attending at his own pace with his own troop and local counselors.


Material to Bring

Scouts are expected to arrive prepared. Notebook with pencil or pen should be brought to the merit badge clinic. Scouts must request and receive Merit Badge Blue Cards from their Troop Advancement Committee or Scoutmaster in advance of the clinic. Scouts should bring their approved blue cards with them to the clinic. NO BLUE CARDS WILL BE PROVIDED the day of, or completed without the appropriate signatures.  Merit Badge Blue Cards will NOT be handed out during the clinic. Please note classes that may offer two merit badges in one session. All pre-requisite items for each class and worksheets used in the classrooms can be found at www.usscouts.org.
