Merit Badge Partials Information for Parents and Scouts

Posted on Nov 29 2015 - 5:57pm
Do you have several partially completed merit badges?  If so, this information is for you! 
Merit Badges are a very important part of advancement in scouting. There are several ways that you can earn Merit Badges in Troop 1001:
  • A scout may choose to work on a Merit Badge on his own with a Merit Badge counselor from within the Troop.
  • Troop 1001 offers Merit Badge classes throughout the scouting year.  Watch the newsletter and website for information on these classes.
  • Summer Camp is a great opportunity to earn Merit Badges.
  • Troop 1001 also offers Winter Camp each year in January.  Scouts may begin/earn up to 4 Merit Badges during this weekend.
  • Other opportunities such as Merit Badge Colleges, and classes offered through business and other organizations are also available. We will provide this information in the newsletter and on the website as it becomes available to us.
When a scout begins a Merit Badge, he receives a blue card which is signed by the Scoutmaster.  This blue card is a record of requirements that have been completed and those that have not been completed. Many times, a scout may be unable to complete a Merit Badge during Summer Camp, Winter Camp, Merit Badge colleges, etc.  In some cases, the scout or the Merit Badge Counselor may hold the only record (blue card) of completed requirements.  In other cases, such as with Summer Camp, the Troop will receive a record of requirements that have been completed and those that still need to be finished. The information on the blue card represents a lot of work done by the scout. It is very important to keep these in a safe place so that the Merit Badge can be completed.  Once all of the requirements are completed, the scout will receive credit for the Merit Badge.
The Troop wants to help scouts get their partially completed Merit Badges finished between now and Winter Camp which will be held January 16-18, 2015. To complete a partial Merit Badge:
  • If the Merit Badge was started with a counselor in the Troop, complete the unfinished requirements and then contact the counselor that started the Merit Badge with you. If that counselor is no longer available, check the Merit Badge Counselor list on the Troop website to find a counselor to help you complete the Merit Badge. http://troop1001.org/system/files/Troop_1001_Counselors_Grouped_By_Badge_242013-0.pdf
  • If the Merit Badge was started outside of the Troop (Summer Camp, Merit Badge colleges, etc.), you may use the same list to find a counselor within the Troop to help you complete the Merit Badge.
  • If you are unsure of what partials you have, check your record by clicking on your name on the Troop Website.  Some partial Merit Badges will be listed there.
We will be setting aside some time at Winter Camp for scouts to meet with counselors to complete partial Merit Badges.  Scouts will need to find out what partials they have, and complete them BEFORE Winter Camp.  Then he will need to sign up for a time to meet with the Merit Badge Counselor to go over the completed requirements. Sign ups will become available later this Fall.  If the requirements are completed to the counselor's satisfaction, he/she will sign the blue card showing that the Merit Badge is complete.
If you have questions about completing partial Merit Badges, please talk Mr. Reisinger or Mrs. Kruse.
