Registration is $10 per scout which includes a patch and merit badge sessions.




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





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.  These will be emailed to you after completion of event.
