Merit Badge Information


  • At the bottom of this page you will find links to Troop and BSA merit badge resources.
  • All merit badge counselors need to complete a one page merit badge counselor registration form by the end of September.  Turn the form into the Merit Badge Coordinator. 
  • For scouts attending merit badge academies, the Houston Science Museum, Moody Gardens, and other special venues for merit badges:  you will be assigned a merit badge counselor in the troop to review what you learned during these events and they will sign off your blue cards. 
  • The merit badge section of the troop website has been updated with great information including a new PowerPoint presentation for merit badge counselors. 
  • We need parents to volunteer to be a merit badge counselor--Eagle required badges are in big need of additional counselors.
  • Please return old merit badge pamphlets to the troop library
  • Blue cards will only be issued to merit badge counselors and parents of scouts who are attending a formal merit badge class such as the Houston Science Museum, Moody Gardens, MB Academy, etc.
  • When scouts complete a merit badge, turn it into the Merit Badge Coordinator
  • Keep up the great work with merit badges!
