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. Scouts/Units may register through the links at the top of this page starting on November 1st.(credit card is required).
This website also includes the necessary Pre-work for Merit Badges (posted soon), responses to Frequently-Asked-Questions, and a copy of the registration forms. Use the class schedule matrix to help plan out your various sessions (posted Sept. 15th).
Attendance at each locatoin 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 for all sites will close on December 15th or when each site is full.
