Merit Badges


Scouts should contact the Advancement Chair (Mr. Swope or Mrs. Hayes) or complete the online Request Form to get started. You'll have a merit badge counselor assigned and a signed blue card at the next meeting. Scouts are responsible for contacting your Merit Badge Counselor prior to working on the badge.
