Attendance is no guarantee of receiving credit for the merit badge(s) attempted at Merit Badge College.  All merit badges require active preparation and participation.

If you are a Boy Scout or Venturer with a rank of First Class or higher OR have finished the 7th grade, you are eligible to register for, and participate in, after discussion with your Scoutmaster, any of the Merit Badges being offered.  Each Scout may register for up to 8 hours of classes.

How to register:

1. Look over the Merit Badges to be offered and the difficulty ratings, then have a discussion with your Scoutmaster about what Badges you would like to attempt.  After you both agree on a slate of Badges, go to the next step.  THIS INFORMATION CAN BE DOWNLOADED HERE:

2. With your parent’s permission, register below. 

3. Complete the online registration form, filling in all fields on the form. (Please note that the email address you use in the registration section will be the one used to confirm your class choices and to communicate important information to you about Merit Badge College)

4. Select your class choices and alternate class choices in the appropriate section.  (The sooner you sign up, the more likely you will receive your first choice of classes.  Alternates will be used only in the case where classes have become filled. You will receive a final confirmation email once the registrar processes your application with your final schedule.)
