While we strive to have merit badge counselors at every program, they are volunteers and not often available. Scouts are encouraged to connect with a local merit badge counselor to review work and sign the blue card.

Per Scouts, BSA requirements, scouts must have blue cards signed by their scoutmaster in order to begin a merit badge.

All programs are free; scouts should dress in scouting attire and bring a lunch.
