January 11, AND February 1, 2014
St Patrick’s School
87 Marsh Drive, Carlisle PA 17013
Welcome to the 11th Annual Merit Badge College. Registration will open October 1, 2013 at 9 a.m. and close October 15, 2013, or when all badges are full. Cost is $10 per Scout regardless of the number of badges.
We are pleased to present this exciting event for the enjoyment of your Scouts, Scouters, and adults in attendance. Our commitment continues to be focused upon creating a learning environment to present the skills and training necessary to succeed and to further the Scout’s advancement goals while providing the opportunity to enjoy good fellowship and experience Boy Scouting at its best. Merit Badge College is not a program that guarantees advancement, nor is it a ‘merit badge factory.’ Unfortunately there have been parents who believe that just by attending, that their son should get the MB. It is an opportunity for Scouts to meet with qualified counselors who help them earn the merit badges they need for advancement. Please be aware that a Scout may not fully complete the requirements for a merit badge at the college. It is the Merit Badge Counselor, however, who determines, finally, whether or not the Scout has satisfactorily completed the requirements for a merit badge.
The Scout Oath and The Scout Law shall be the code of Merit Badge College. We are guests of St Patrick’s School and we will practice Leave No Trace principles.
Be careful and don’t rush when registering. There were way too many registrations with errors last year. If your registration is incorrect, it will be cancelled, you’ll have to start over and you may miss out on a class you want.
