A big part of a Scout’s advancement beyond First Class involves merit badges but what’s the process to earn one?
- Choose a merit badge that interests you and/or is one that is Eagle required: https://www.scouting.org/programs/boy-scouts/advancement-and-awards/merit-badges/
- Email Scoutmaster Kevin to ask for the Merit Badge Counselor’s phone number and be sure to get a blue merit badge card by the Scoutmaster BEFORE meeting with the Counselor. For instructions on how to properly fill out a blue card properly, in ink, click here: MBD Blue Card Instructions. (Many thanks to www.ScoutmasterBucky.com for the .pdf.)
- Be sure to review the requirements of the merit badge in advance and take heed of the Boy Scout Motto, “Be Prepared.” Be sure to bring whatever you need, including paper and a pen.
