Some pre-work or post-class work will be required in order to complete each merit badge. Please review the Leaders’ Guide to see which requirements need to be completed prior or after in order to earn the badge:


Any Scout who has interest in taking one of these badges needs to seek permission from the Scoutmaster ASAP as registration has opened to the Council. Once permission is granted, the parent may register using the link to be provided after this contact.
