What is Merit Badge Make-Up Day?

Merit Badge Make-up Day is to give scouts an opportunity to finish a Merit Badge that they are currently holding a partial completion in already. Usually Merit Badges were not completed at summer camp because the scout did not complete the summer camp pre-requisites or did not complete a project. Merit Badge Make-up Day is not a Merit Badge fair and does not offer the opportunity to start work on Merit Badges.  Participants must have Blue Card with them and be prepared when they arrive. They must have also reported to their Scoutmaster that they will be attending this event.

Scouts MUST bring the following items with them:

1. Blue Card – which indicates the requirements which have been completed and are pending completion.
2. Material that completes the pending requirements (If the requirement ask the scout to discuss with the counselor please be prepared to discuss)

What Merit Badges can I complete at Merit Badge Make-Up Day?

We expect to offer counselors to help Scouts complete the following merit-badges.  Registered MB Counselors are needed to help staff this event, please sign up for the event.

  • Pool activity only, No CPR will be offered on this day.
