Merit Badge Days

Merit Badge Days

Merit Badge Days, hosted by Boy Scout Troops, provide Scouts with an activity-filled day combining hands-on activities, question and answer sessions, and fun projects to help Scouts earn merit badges. Only days approved by the Council Advancement Committee are posted here.

Each Merit Badge Day requires that Scouts who attend fill out and provide the “Activity Consent Form and Approval by Parents or Legal Guardian” form upon arrival of the event. Please note: some Troops will provide this form with their approved flier so submit as directed.

Merit Badge Days Coordinator Training

The Orange County Council is pleased to roll-out the Merit Badge Days program. The Council will host a minimum of two Unit Merit Badge Day Coordinator training’s per year. Each hosting unit must have at least two registered Scouters become Coordinators by completing the training certification.

Next Merit Badge Day Training: TBA
