DO NOT ASK MERIT BADGE COUNSELORS TO ACCEPT SCOUTS INTO SPECIFIC MERIT BADGE CLASSES; EVERYBODY NEEDS TO USE THE ONLINE REGISTRATION SYSTEM. CLASSROOM CAPACITY IS ALWAYS A CONCERN AND THE MB COUNSELOR CAN NOT HELP YOU.

Description

Register beginning June 3, 2017 for our 23rd Merit Badge Day!



Merit Badges to be offered are subject to change based on MB Counselor availability and class minimums. BSA Troop 1776 reserves the right to limit or cancel any class. NO WALK-INS will be allowed.



REGISTRATION: Registration by Troop is REQUIRED. Open enrollment will begin on the above stated date.  Fees are non-refundable but can be transferred to another scout. MB Counselors require student e-mail or phone for coordination.  Please note that by registering, you are reserving a seat in a class and are expected to pay and attend.  If you must cancel, please do so as early as possible so that another Scout may take your place.

UNIFORM: The Full B.S.A. Class A uniform is the official uniform for the day. The merit badge sash may also be worn. 



CODE OF CONDUCT: The Scout Oath, the Law, and the Outdoor Code shall be the code of the Merit Badge Day. A Scout whose conduct is not consistent with the code will be directed to leave the church grounds immediately. Adequate supervision must be provided by each participating unit. Discipline is the responsibility of the Scoutmaster or other assigned leaders in charge of the troop.



TRANSPORTATION: The troop Leaders must coordinate arrival and departure time for transportation. Troops need to make certain that they have adequate transportation for their Scouts. Please advise your parents NOT to drop or pick up scouts from the church. ALL transportation TO and FROM The Merit Badge Day must be arranged within your troop. Encourage everyone to carpool. Troops may not leave Scouts by themselves to be picked up by parents at a later time. We will not render sitting services.



CLEAN UP: The Scout is clean. Troop Leaders please coordinate with your troop to clean the premises and to keep the classrooms in the same condition as found. Future offerings of the Merit Badge Day will largely depend on how neat we leave the place. All garbage must be properly disposed into designated containers or carried out.



SECURITY: Because the public has access to the church, units will need to exercise their own vigilance. Report any incidents to the event organizers.


Counselor Information

BLUE CARDS / Merit Badge Books.......All Scouts must bring to class the following:

Blue Card SIGNED by their Scoutmaster (one per each Merit Badge)

Merit Badge booklet Merit Badge worksheet (http://usscouts.org/mb/framesindex.html)

Any pre-requisite work should be completed prior to attending the class.  Failure to do so may limit the Scout's ability to complete the badge on the day of the event.



The Blue Card will be updated with tasks completed in class and returned to Scout BEFORE they depart the classroom. It is the responsibility of the Scout to request and obtain his Blue Card.



PREREQUISITES: The Merit Badge Counselor will give credit for completed requirements ONLY. The Scout should complete all other requirements not covered in class, at his own pace and with his own troop counselors. Class work will be followed by individual Scout’s projects and his ability to fulfill all requirements.



ADVANCEMENT RECORDS: After the merit badge event, if you have any questions about Scout advancement, please visit your "Unit Sign-Up" page and print the "Show & Print Roster."
