Merit Badge College gives your scouts an opportunity to earn one of the many badges offered in engineering, science or a non-technical badge. The instructors are Chattanooga State Faculty members who will provide informative and challenging sessions and will introduce them to a college environment, as well as a possible career and higher education opportunities.
Due to the varied subject matter, we are asking Scoutmasters to counsel Scouts on choosing merit badges that are appropriate for the Scout’s age and experience. Scouts should come in complete uniform.
Important Note on Requirements
MBC is designed to assist Scouts in completing requirements for merit badges. The instructors will address as many requirements as possible during the class. In order to facilitate these objectives:
Scouts must be at least 13 years old or in the 8th grade and:
Read the entire merit badge book for the assigned class prior to MBC.
Complete all prerequisites before Merit Badge College.
Bring the merit badge pamphlet, pen and paper to Merit Badge College.
