    Merit Badge Make-Up Day-08.wmv

    Merit Badge Make-Up Day is the Eagle Scout Association's premier event. Merit Badges play an important role in a Scout's Trail to Eagle, second only to the Eagle Project. 

    The event provides a chance for Scouts to complete merit badge requirements left incomplete at Summer Camp.

    Over the years thousands of Scouts have taken advantage of this opportunity to complete their partials.

    We need your help, and we look forward to working alongside you at this wonderful event.  Please register today!
