The Merit Badge Clinic for March 21, 2020  and May 16, 2020 has been cancelled in keeping with guidelines put out by the CDC.  We plan to reschedule once we have clearance to do so. If you previously registered for these clinics your fee can be transferred to an online class.

Merit Badge Clinics will be scheduled regularly throughout the year.  Please check this page often for updates.  Unless otherwise noted Clinics will be at the Donald W. Reynolds Scouting Resource Center and Engelstad Scout Park. Each clinic will have tow sessions: one in the morning and one in the afternoon.  If you stay for both sessions you will need to bring a lunch.  Please check for any pre-requisites on the registration page.  Scouts are responsible to ensure they have completed any prerequisites prior to the clinic in order to complete the merit badge that day.  Scouts are responsible to bring a signed merit badge (blue) card.  

UPDATE ON MERIT BADGE CLINICS

A change will be implemented with the March Clinic. At each clinic we will be offering badges that will be taught in over two clinics.  During the first clinic you will be given instruction on the topic and direction on any “homework”.  The second clinic will be for Scouts to present their requirements to the Counselor and receive additional instruction.  As long as the “homework” is completed Scouts will be able to complete the badge requirements in the second clinic (Instructors will not sign cards during the first clinic).  Depending on Merit Badge requirements a 2nd merit badge could be offered.  We anticipate that this change will allow scouts the opportunity to earn some of the more technical or difficult badges.  

When signing up for a tw0-part merit badge please make sure you can attend both clinics.  The council will automatically sign you up for the second clinic after you have attended the first clinic.  Only Council staff are able to add Scouts to the second clinic.

Note:  If you have suggestions on badges we should offer and/or counselor recommendations please email lvacdss@scouting.org.
