Earn a Merit Badge in


To earn a badge, participants must attend a workshop that includes both lectures/discussions and hands-on activities. Our staff, who are certified Merit Badge Counselors with the Boy Scouts of America, will sign a “blue card” for each scout if all requirements are met for that badge.

Workshop fees: $21 per scout, per workshop ($14 for CMSC Members). Fees include cost of materials used during workshop. One free adult admission will be granted to troops with 10 or more scouts.
