Description


New Hanover County Fire Rescue and Wilmington Fire Department have pooled public safety partners and experts to provide scouts with first rate merit badge sessions.  Please join us for our third annual merit badge college.



This event will take place on August 19, 2017 at Cape Fear Community College's North Campus.



We have added new merit badges this year and hope to add a few more in the next weeks as merit badge counselors are confirmed.  We have also added adult indoor leader training and adult CPR training opportunities.

Scouts are to "BE PREPARED"

Use of electronic devices will not be tolerated during classroom instruction unless part of the class.

Lunch is provided on site and is included as part of the fee.

Registration is $15 per scout which includes lunch, a patch, and merit badge sessions.

Adult lunches are available for $5 for those remaining on site with their scouts.



**Multiple session classes**  Some classes take the morning and afternoon session to complete.  They are listed as AM/PM classes.



There will not be a closing ceremony and you are free to leave after classes have dismissed.



Some merit badges will not be completed.  It will be noted which requirements will be completed during the session.  For partial merit badge completion, it is the scouts responsibility to follow up with their scoutmaster or the merit badge counselor after the event.  We will not be signing off work completed prior to the event because of the limited amount of time the merit badge counselors have during the event.



We will not provide blue cards.  This year we will provide a print out of the completed requirements with the merit badge counselor's signature similar to the format used at summer camp.
