Merit Badge Day

The CT Rivers Council Merit Badge Day will be held at locations across the state. Each Scout can choose one merit badge to complete. The fee to participate is $25 (except Astronomy is $40 due to Seaport entrance fees and Oceanography which is $85 due to included boat trip). Scouts will need to bring a bagged lunch with them. 

If the prerequisites listed below are completed and evidence of completion is brought to the event the badge should be able to be completed. However, active participation is required and signing up for the badge does not alone guarantee completion.
