Merit Badges

The Merit Badge process for scouts

The process for finding a merit badge counselor is:

  • Scout decides to get a merit badge.

  • Scout meets with Scoutmaster.

  • Scoutmaster issues a "Blue Card" merit badge card.

  • Scoutmaster provides scout with contact information for merit badge councelors that handle the badge in question.

  • Scout contacts Merit Badge Counselor and makes an appointment.

  • Scout completes badge, gets blue card signed and gives card to the Scoutmaster
