The official current list of Merit badges are at https://www.scouting.org/programs/scouts-bsa/advancement-and-awards/merit-badges/
Most registration problems are caused by the paperwork not being turned in together or by the adult
application being incomplete. Here are the items you want to turn in, together (NOTE: if anything is missing, you
may have to start the process over):
Your Merit Badge Counselor Information sheet (scouting.org/filestore/pdf/34405.pdf),
A copy of your Youth Protection certificate (Y01). If you are not sure, check with the Scout Office at 206-725-
5200 for acceptable dates on the certificate. (my.scouting.org),
If you are already registered in another position in Chief Seattle, you do not need to turn in a new application.
CATCH: you do need to make sure you are registered by doing one of the following:
• Check the expiration date on your BSA registration card
• Check with your committee chair - are you on the unit (district) roster in my.Scouting,org?
• Call your district executive at 928-710-1895
Many Kitsap District Merit Badge counselors use of Scoutbook to track and support youth in the district. Eventually this will be the only tool.
Some units have not yet transitioned to Scoutbook and as such those Troop Committee members are supported through the District Advancement team.
KITSAP MERIT BADGE CLINIC http://kitsapmbclinic.org/
The District holds a Merit Badge Clinic during the winter. The clinic is typically three Saturday's for about 4 hours a day where a classroom atmosphere provides for sessions for youth to sign up and work on a multitude of subjects. This re-enforces with the all scouts the reach and size of the District and it's neighboring districts demonstrating the total number of people active in Scouting.
The portal used for the Merit Badge Clinic for Winter 2019-2020 is http://kitsapmbclinic.org/ .
The clinic is currently open for registration of registered scouts. Webelos Arrow of Light scouts that are transitioning to a troop before the first day of the clinic may register through that troop to get a start on the Merit Badges.
The sessions fill up quick. This year in just the first four hours of registration 134 scouts signed up for over 385 classes. Over 44 Merit Badge Counselors came together.
In order to add more sessions more Merit badge counselors are needed on that subject. If you are willing to support then please contact the Clinic team firstname.lastname@example.org
