Merit Badges are first come, first served by registration. For Merit Badge classes, a waitlist for “Full” classes will be established. However, this is no way guarantees a seat in a class. If additional instructors volunteer, classes will be filled from existing waitlist’s. To guarantee attendance, recommend Scouts sign-up for classes that are not full. If a Scout is moved from wait-list to a class, an email will be sent to the registration email.
During registration to select classes, look for the Select Schedule, Morning Classes / Afternoon Classes link, and select the classes available. During registration and class selection, pay particular attention to RED “Information Needed” links.
Some classes, such as Leather-working ($10) and Electricity ($5), have a small extra charge for necessary supplies.
Almost all classes have Pre-Requisites that must be completed before class. Bring the completed requirements to class to receive credit. Please see the note on prerequisites required prior to class when selecting classes.
Each Scout must bring a Scout Master signed/approved Blue Card.
We ask that One Registered/YPT certified adult from each unit stay at Freedom HS to handle any issues that might arise.
