Thanks to the cooperation of the volunteers who have agreed to be merit badge counselors and attend the Midway, we are able to offer the above merit badges for scouts to earn and/or learn about.
The Midway will be in operation from 9 AM to 5 PM on Saturday and Sunday. Some merit badges will be offered on both days. Some will be offered only on Saturday or Sunday
Scouts who plan to earn a merit badge must prepare in advance by becoming familiar with requirements. Merit Badges pamphlets are available in the scout shop and are highly recommended.
Some requirements can and must be completed before the scout arrives at the Midway. All projects or materials required should be brought by the scout to the Midway. Scouts who are asking for credit for requirements that can not be done at the rally must bring certification (from their Scoutmaster or a qualified adult acceptable to their Scoutmaster) that they have completed the requirement. Partial completion blue cards are accepted for partial credit.
Scouts must bring a blue merit badge application cards signed by their Scoutmaster for all merits they are interested in earning.
Scoutmasters and Troop contacts: If you can assist at the Midway by counseling merit badges, please email David Ames at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name, troop number, borough and the badges you can do.
