Merit Badge College is a unique opportunity for Scouts to earn a merit badge. This third annual event will be held at Del Mar College West Campus in Corpus Christi. It is sponsored and hosted by the South Texas Council Boy Scouts of America and Del Mar College. Merit Badge College is scheduled for Saturday, April 27, 2013. It will be held in conjunction with the University of Scouting training program for adult leaders.
A unique feature to the program is the opportunity for Troops to campout on Friday evening on the grounds of the campus. Del Mar College staff is inviting and encouraging units to consider this opportunity especially troops from outside the immediate Corpus Christi area. There are restroom and shower facilities available near the designated camping area and the location is secure with Del Mar College providing site personnel and security officers.
As you know the merit badge system is designed to help Scouts explore career fields and areas of interest. Del Mar College Staff along with council volunteers are offering 11 merit badges that will give you an opportunity to explore some exciting new topics, such as Aviation, Electronics and Truck Transportation to name a few.
The $15 cost per Scout helps to cover lunch, a special patch, handouts, and a merit badge pamphlet for each class.
Attached is the schedule for merit badges to be offered at Merit Badge College. Scouts can sign up for one merit badge class for the day. Class confirmation will take place Saturday morning during check in. So please indicate alternative merit badge choices.
To register please return the attached registration form to the council service center.
The number of participants to the Merit Badge College is limited to ensure a quality program. Space is limited to 15 Scouts per class; this event is on a first come first served basis, so prompt registration is important.
Thank you for your consideration and interest and look forward to seeing you at Merit Badge College on April 27th.
