2017-2018 Merit Badge Challenge Registration

Sponsored by Troop 269, Seneca District, Great Trail Council

It is my pleasure to invite you to participate in Troop 269's Merit Badge Challenge. The Merit Badge Challenge is an opportunity for you to earn up to 3 merit badges this winter.  This event improves advancement for all attending scouts, and provides the opportunity to explore vocations and new hobbies. Emphasis is placed on those merit badges that lend themselves to an indoor or wintertime activity such as Computers, Communications, and Citizenship badges. 


1).  The Merit Badge Challenge will be held on the following Saturdays:

       12/2/2017, 1/13/2018 and 3/10/2018

2).  The Merit Badge Challenge will be held at:

Harmon Middle School, 130 Aurora Hudson Rd, Aurora, OH 44202

Please arrive between 8:30–8:45 AM for check-in.

3).  Attendance is $30.00 per Scout. Payment by check is required. Mail checks made out to Troop 269 to:

Lesley Mitchell, 1925 Springside Circle, Streetsboro, OH 44241

4).  The Merit Badge Challenge starts PROMPTLY at 9:00 AM. Please arrive between 8:30–8:45 AM.

Each session of the Merit Badge Challenge is broken up into three class periods.

8:30-8:50       Check-in

9:00-10:20     Merit Badge Period 1

10:30-11:50   Merit Badge Period 2

11:55-12:30   Lunch (included)

12:40-2:00     Merit Badge Period 3

2:00              Cleanup

*** Each Scout works on up to three Merit Badges over the course of three sessions, unless they are taking First Aid, which lasts 2 periods each session.

  • The scouts will work on each merit badge they are assigned at all three sessions.

  • Scouts are expected to arrive on time and stay until dismissed by the counselor.

5).  The Merit Badge Challenge is finished by 2:00 PM each Saturday.

6).  The Official BSA Field Uniform (Class A) is to be worn all three Saturdays.

7).  On the first Saturday the scout needs to bring a signed/filled out blue merit badge card for each merit badge and a current merit badge book, or a printout of the requirements from the website, for each merit badge taken. The name and FULL address including ZIP CODE, must be written LEGIBLY on the blue cards. Some scouts print their own labels for use on the cards. This allows for misplaced cards to be mailed.

8).  First Aid Merit Badge takes two class periods each session. Upon successful completion of the class the Scout will earn the merit badge and obtain American Red Cross Certification along with AED certification.

9).  Some merit badges require additional materials or fees. Scouts will be told on the first day of class if there are any additional fees or materials required. It is also noted on the registration website.

10). Lunch is provided and included in the cost.
