Merit Badge Challenge is available to all registered Boy Scouts.  This popular event improves advancement for all attending troops/crews and provides our youth the opportunity to explore vocations and new hobbies.

Each Scout has the opportunity to earn up to three merit badges.  Emphasis is placed on those merit badges that lend themselves to an indoor or wintertime activity such as Chemistry, Law, Computers, Communication, and Citizenship badges.  Merit badges usually offered at summer camp are excluded from this event.

A Scout may register to attend only one Merit Badge Challenge, at any of the four schools.  The meeting dates at the four schools differ with each on location.  Be sure to circle the correct school when registering.

Scouts may register Through the links at the top of this page (credit card is required).  This website also includes the necessary Prework for Merit Badges, responses to Frequently-Asked-Questions, and a copy of the registration forms.  Use the class schedule matrix to help plan out your various sessions.

Attendance at each high school is limited based on the fire capacity codes for each school.  Therefore the registration at one or more schools may close out before the published Registration deadline.  Attendance and availability of Merit Badges is limited. So early registration is strongly recommended.

Registration will open for the Fairfield, Sycamore, and Bethel-Tale sites on Monday, September 30, 2013.  Registration for Fairfield, Sycamore, and Bethel-Tate closes on December 13th or when each site is full.  Registration for Dixie Heights will open on January 5, 2014 and close in February 11, 2014.  Click on the site above that you wish to attend to register.

Registration Fee is $15.00 per scout if submitted by Open Registration cutoff date.  Checks for the registration fee should be made out to Merit Badge Challenge, BSA (site name).  Registration is non-transferable to any other Scout.
