Signup for the 2017 Merit Badge Forum is now open.
The Merit Badge Forum is an event organized by the district each year to give scouts an opportunity to earn up to three merit badges of their choosing. Scouts can take anywhere from one to three classes, two of which can be Eagle required. It is structured in a classroom style, with scouts working under a merit badge counselor to perform as many of the requirements as possible in that setting. Classes are held on three Saturday mornings.
