Sponsor Information
Mid-America Council
Merit Badge college on the campus of Iowa Western Community College in Council Bluffs, Iowa, with over 400 scouts attending.  $15 per boy, $10 per adult leader.

If there are entries in the Prerequisites field, these will not be completed on the day of the college.  If a scout completes these prior to the college, he should bring evidence of completion to his class to receive credit from the college merit badge counselor.  If they are not completed prior to the college, the scout will need to complete the merit badge with another counselor.  In some cases, the instructor specifically requests that a prereq be brought to class.

Registration opens at 7:30 and first classes start promptly at 8.  Lunch is 11 to 12.

Unit Sign-up Instructions

Register all (potentially) attending adult leaders at  You will need an email address, your council (use Mid-America not Mid America if that is your council), your district, your unit type and number, your BSA ID number and the date of your most recent Youth Protection training in addition to the usual information.

Any registered adult can register, update, or delete youth from their associated unit.  In addition to class size, some badges have a minimum age.

Be sure that attending adults are registered in the Adult Volunteer class - we would hate to run out of food! The fee per adult is $10.. The system is incorrectly calculating it as $25 ($10 +$15), and we are working on getting it fixed, but you only owe $10 per adult.

Payment Instructions for the Unit

Payment must be received no later than mail delivery on Oct. 5th. One check per unit is preferred. Checks should be made payable to Mid-America Council, BSA and addressed to:

Southwest Iowa Merit Badge College
