Merit Badge Program Information for new Scouts

Not a Scout?  Anyone can particpate in the the merit badge program.  Merit badges provide opportunities for campers to learn skills. Whether it be canoeing or archery, campers will spend time each day learning about an activity they have a special interest in.

*There is no guarantee of completion of any merit badge.   There is no guarantee that all requirements will be met at camp for any of the listed merit badges.  Some requirements may have to be completed outside of camp. If a scout does not complete all of the requirements for a merit badge during the session, they will receive a “Partial Completion” and have their Blue Card returned indicating the requirements that were completed. Scouts can earn the badge by completing the requirements with a counselor at home, summer camp, etc. Scouts cannot “fail” Merit Badges; there are only different levels of completion. Note: Please check the most recent merit badge pamphlet for the most current information.
