Event Description

Event Details:

Registration and check-in will be held at the TEC Center. Please be sure you have two deep leadership present at check in. Each registered scout will receive a wristband that needs to be worn at all times. This wristband grants entrance to Merit Badge sessions and meals. Merit Badge counselors will be instructed to send any scout without a wristband back to registration.

Please note that merit badge sessions will be held at the Technical Education Center (TEC). Classrooms will be used in the TEC Center. There is parking directly in front of the TEC Center (recommended for check-in). Many merit badges will be located off site; no transportation will be provided but maps and directions will be available.
