Notice!!! Meritbadge.Info will switch to the new site with BSA validation Friday morning March 13th.

If you wish to start using this site today, click here to launch

Adults must enter their BSA Number, DOB, First and Last name as it appears on their BSA ID card. We will query BSA and get back an answer. At this point one of three things can happen:
1) Your registration is verified - you can continue using normally
2) You are not registered or your registration has lapsed - your prior rights are revoked and you get the read-only screens that you see before your login
3) You are registered but your YPT has expired - your prior rights are revoked and you get the read-only screens that you see before your login

You have had at least two months to get yourself registered and complete YPT training. If you feel your validation is not working, send us an email with the four data items listed and we will validate your entry.

We have no control over what is on file at BSA. If everything matches your BSA ID card, there should be no issues. If not, your validation will fail.

Why are we doing this?
1. To provide higher security and validation of all adult users.
2. To clean up the mess we've accumulated via 15 years of poor user data entry.  

How will we do this? 

What should you do? 
Login to and copy your BSA ID Number then update your profile on  Let others in your unit know they should do the same.  We are giving you 2.5 months advanced notice to make this work.

Privacy Policy

Mike and Rodrigo built this system to allow scouters to sign up for events on a first-come, first serve basis and to allow event managers to focus on event quality by automating the drudgery associated with collecting information. All data collected by this site is used to simplify and expedite the registration process. This information is not for sale to anyone and is not shared with third parties.

Contributions... began as a Wood Badge ticket item. (92-46 Bear Patrol)

The registration system was an offshoot that initially took a couple of weekends. Since then, Rodrigo and Mike have constantly improved the tools to provide scouts with more opportunities for advancement and fun.

Use of the website is free. We only ask that you help us make it better by providing constructive feedback and tell everyone you know in other areas about it so the opportunities for scout events continue to grow.  We also appreciate your testimonials.

If you really like what we are providing, send us both a patch for our collection.
