Merit Badges

Upcoming Merit Badge Events

Shooting Sports clinics occur monthly at the Heard Scout Pueblo. 

Most traditional MB Clinics hosted by community organizations have been postponed indefinitely due to COVID-19. 

Virtual events are available based on volunteer availability.  If you would like to host a virtual merit badge clinic, please contact Advancement Chair Bill Nelson at 


A “Blue Card” is required for each merit badge class unless they use Scoutbook to record progress. Please follow this link to download an electronic copy. 

The Scout must bring a signed blue card, filled out with name, address, requirement numbers etc. before going to the class.

Fees vary depending on materials, time and price of admission of business holding the clinic.

There will be some clinics that only cover certain portions of the requirements or have expectations that particular sections will be completed before or after the clinic, such as Personal Fitness which requires tracking progress over twelve weeks.  

Earning a badge is also contingent on the Scout completing their work and participating in the clinic.
