Merit Badge Registration

Preparing for Registration

  • Several meetings prior to March 16th, each Scout should be provided a copy of the 2014 Merit Badge and Program Schedule, the 2014 Merit Badge and Program Pre-Requisite List, and the Individual Scout Activity Schedule.  Scouts should select a first, second and third choice of merit badge or program for each time slot.
  • Scout leaders and parents should carefully review each Scout's selections to ensure they are registering for merit badges they can successfully complete.
  • Review the requirements and pre-requisites then consider the mental and physical maturity required for each badge.
  • At least one meeting prior to March 16th, the Summer Camp Coordinator should collect the Scout Activity Schedules and verify that each schedule is practical and the times are correct.
  • Prior to the registration date, make sure all unit payments are up to date and the unit has a zero balance due.  You cannot register for merit badges if your unit has an outstanding balance.

On March 16, 2015, merit badge registration opens in Doubleknot promptly at 9:00 am EDT.

  • Please refer to the Doubleknot registration instructions for complete details of the process.
  • Register each Scout for their chosen merit badges and programs.
  • All sessions are first-come, first-served.  Register early!!!
  • Some merit badges and programs have additional fees.  Those fees will be due with your final payment by May 18th.
  • Some sessions will fill up more quickly than others.  If a session is full, it will not be displayed on the registration screen.
  • Class size limits are based on national standards, practicality, and safety standards.  Class size limits will not be changed.
  • If necessary, register a Scout for their second or third choice for a given time slot.
  • Check back frequently.  Openings do occur as units make changes to their Scout's schedules.
