YOUR PORTAL TO MERIT BADGE DAY
ABOUT THE DAY
This is the official merit badge informational and registration site for BSA Troop 959 in San Diego California. Through this Portal, you are able to research and sign up for the badges we are offering. We will be conducting the program October 8, 2022, at the College Ave Baptist Church, 4747 College Ave, San Diego, CA 92115
In putting on this Merit Badge Day, Troop 959 strives to create a quality Merit Badge program that includes skilled trades, life skills, general enrichment and Eagle-required Merit Badges. In small-classroom settings, Scouts will learn from carefully recruited professional counselors. There will be no on-site registration or walk-ins. The only way to sign up for this event is through this website.
Scouts have the option of taking up to four 2-hour classes, however, some classes require more than one session. The intent is to be able to sign off Blue Cards for all scouts who come prepared with all perquisites and complete the in-class requirements. Regardless of the number of merit badge classes a scout takes, the cost is $38 per scout. Lunch is included. Fees are non-refundable; however, if a scout must back out, he can transfer the registration to another scout. Please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org to make these arrangements.
Troop 959 will reserve the right to limit or cancel any class. Merit Badges to be offered are subject to change based on MB Counselor availability and class minimums.
Scouts are admitted to classes on a first come, first served basis via the online registration system. There is no waiting list for any of the merit badges classes. Should you encounter booked classes, please monitor this website in case seats become available.
EXPECTATION: Scouts are strongly encouraged to buy or borrow and read the Merit Badge Booklet and complete all prerequisites before attending the Merit Badge Day. Scouts should be prepared to discuss, report, demonstrate, and be tested on all requirements.
