Valley District Merit Badge College 2016
The Annual Valley District Merit Badge College will be held at Front
Range Community College on Saturday, November 12th. Online registration begins October 12th and
continues until November 9th. Classes are 'First Come, First Served', so
the earlier you register, the more likely you'll be able to sign up for
the Merit Badge classes you want. (Walk-ins are discouraged, as most of
the classes are full by the date of the event).
Over 50 different merit badges will be offered. Attending the class
does NOT guarantee you'll earn the Merit Badge, as many of the merit
badges have requirements that can NOT be completed at merit badge
college. The merit badge counselors generally make themselves available
to work with the scouts after college. The scout can always finish the
merit badge with a troop merit badge counselor. Check the Merit Badge
College Prerequisites web page for more details.
Volunteers are needed to make this event a success. If you are
attending MB College, please volunteer to be a merit badge counselor,
assist a merit badge counselor, or help out at any of the other
positions. Visit Volunteer to see what positions need to be filled. You will find them at the bottom of the page. Thanks in Advance!
You have until midnight Wednesday, November 9th to sign up!! Any changes after that will be done at Merit Badge College Registration Desk.
