As this is a Merit Badge Fair, all of the scheduling is done online.   As you are looking at ADDING CLASSES, we want to take a minute to explain what all of the information you are looking at

Here is the example of 1 Class that may be available to take.

Key Points:

  • Class Name: Name of the Merit Badge
  • Class Time: This is the starting time of the Merit Badge.  Most of our classes are at leasy 2 hours long
  • Class Block: This tells you how many hours the class is.  For each number you see here, it's another hour long.  For example, this class is 2 hours long.
  • Seats Available: This is how many seats are left.  Once the class fills to capacity, the class will offer a wait-list option.  We can not guarantee that a wailisted Scout will get into a class.  Our instrtuctors are all at max capacity for their courses where they can accomplish the material with Scouts in their class.  Please do not ask for any accomodations on addting +1 to a class.
  • Eagle Required Merit Badges : Scouts must be at least 11 years old at time of registration.  All other merit badges are open to all Scouts 10 years of age and up.
