Sponsor Information
The Monticello Merit Mania(M3) is hosted by Troop 66

Please join us for a great day of merit badge classes taught by enthusiastic scout leaders, dedicated career professionals and avid hobbyists.  Troop 66 has partnered with the Monticello High School, Camp Courageous of Iowa and local business owners to host this Monticello Merit Mania(M3).  We have great accessible facilities and qualified and enthusiastic merit badge counselors to help the scouts learn and be successful.

To earn a merit badge at this workshop, you must complete the prerequisites ahead of class, look over and be familiar with the merit badge book before class, and participate fully in class while you are attending the merit badge mania.  Leaders should know their scouts and help them register for appropriate merit badges for their age and rank.

Scouts may only register for ONE Eagle required merit badge class!


Scouts are expected to arrive in their class A uniform and be prepared for class.  Please bring proof of your prerequisites being completed.  Blue card(s) will be handed out by our merit badge counselors.


Schedule:  The Monticello Merit Mania will begin between 7:00 and 7:45 AM when troops will be asked to pick up their packet in the Monticello High School commons.  At 7:50 we will be having an opening hosted by our very own Troop 66.  From opening merit badge classes will be dismissed with their counselor to take them to their class.

Lunch:  Monticello Troop 66 offers M3 participants a fantastic lunch option.  A PRE-PAID lunch can be purchased for $8.00.  There is a line on the registration to order lunch.  Please make sure you plan ahead and register for lunch for all scouts and adults attending.  We will not have lunch vouchers available on-site for additional lunches.  Your prepaid lunch vouchers(wristbands) will be given to you in your registration packet at check-in.

This year's menu is Hamburger with all the fixings, chips, baked beans, cookie and lemonade.  Vending machines are available to purchase additional snacks, but no change machines are available.

Counselor Information

We ask that you have an adult contact person who will be attend the workshop with your scouts.  We will need their phone number for emergencies.  All release forms must be turned in to the registration table.


**Some merit badge sessions will be going to off site locations, if your troop has scouts signed up for aviation or pottery you will need to be prepared to transport them(location is within 3 miles of the Monticello High School).    Some merit badges(swimming and disability awareness) will be taking the Camp Courageous bus to your location and you will need a signed release form.


ONCE YOUR TROOP HAS SIGNED UP, PLEASE SEND A LIST OF ADULT VOLUNTEERS TO Lynette.  We need at least one adult additional adult in each session to provide two-deep leadership with the merit badge counselor.  It is CRITICAL to the success that we have adults that will sit in sessions.

The Scout Oath, the Law, and the Outdoor Code shall be the guiding behavior for our workshop.  A Scout whose conduct is not consistent with the code will be directed to leave the campus immediately. Adequate supervision must be provided by each participating unit.   

No siblings or non-registered youth will be allowed in classrooms!
