Be Advised: All merit badge sessions are scheduled to end at a quarter to the hour. However, because some requirements require field work, this may change. Scouts who need to complete this type of requirement may be dismissed from certain sessions early. Reasons for early dismissal might be to purchase materials from the Canteen, observations for Ecology badges or collecting samples, but only when accompanied by a buddy. Please check with the Area Directors if you have any concerns with this matter.

Also, extended sessions are required for Hiking, Swimming and possibly some other merit badges. Please check with Area Directors for any concerns you may have. If merit badge sessions should fill up, additional sessions may be added to ensure a Scout is not locked out of a badge.

Notes:

  1. Eagle-Required merit badges are indicated in boldface type above.
  2. Fishing poles are available but it is suggested that scouts bring their own personal fishing poles.
  3. It is highly suggested that scouts purchase the merit badge book to help ensure successful completion of all merit badge work
