2. NEW THIS YEAR: If a scout needs to respond to a merit badge counselor with information prior to the event , but does not do it at least 1 week prior to the event the scout is encouraged to bring a self addressed stamped envelope to his merit badge session to give to counselor so that counselor can mail blue card to scout when badge is completed after the event. Information received by counselors the day of the event will probably not be reviewed by counselor at the event.
Important: In the description of the Merit Badges, all requirements marked in BOLD TYPE must be completed at least 1 week before the “day visit” or this event. Written typed responses must be either e-mailed or sent to the counselor. This year your counselor will have your e-mail address immediately upon registration approval thus allowing 2 way communication between scout and counselor. For further details or information contact the individual Merit Badge counselor. Only partials, if possible, will be earned without this prior work having been done. All partials must be completed no later than June 15, 2017. Please note that for all Merit Badges offered at this Merit Badge College, you must follow the requirements as stated in the given Merit Badge which are taken from BSA National web site. No badges will be changed the day of the event. No walk-ins accepted.
The Scout Oath, The Scout Law, and The Outdoor Code shall be the code of Merit Badge College. Full Class “A” uniform is required unless specified otherwise by a given counselor due to activity to be completed. Scouts need to bring with them the pens or pencils, paper, loose leaf binder or clipboard, and any other school supplies they will need for the badge, along with any project material required to be done in advance, and any verification of work previously done that has been requested by the given Merit Badge Counselor. Each scout is responsible for either obtaining a merit badge book or the information contained within per BSA web site.
