Boy Scouts & Merit Badges

Scouts can earn more than 100 merit badges, many taught in classes as part of our year-round program, to help scouts progress on their journey through the scouting program.  We also offer free classes to help parents understand the Advancement Process and Eagle Rank paperwork.

When registering for the first time, it is best to create an account on the main page of the Registration screen before registering for classes.  That will save you from having to enter your personal information each time you register for a class.

2017-BSA-Eclipse-Patch

A total solar eclipse is a rare event.  A total solar eclipse whose path crosses right over the heart of the US is even more rare.  There won't be another total eclipse over the US until 2024.  After that, you will have to wait until 2045.  In other words, on August 21st, something incredible is going to happen, and to celebrate, BSA has created a patch!

If you would like to earn the 2017 Solar Eclipse Patch, here are the requirements:

          1.  Locate a site suitable for viewing the eclipse.  You can see the exact path and precise timing at https://www.nasa.gov

          2. Describe how to safely view the eclipse.  

          3.  Discuss with your group what you saw and felt during the eclipse.  Post your comments and pictures on social media using the hashtag #BSAEclipse2017.

          4.  Cub Scouts - Discuss what a solar eclipse is.  Boy Scouts -  Draw a diagram of the positions of the moon, earth, and sun to show how an eclipse occurs.

          5.  Go to a Scout Shop and purchase your 2017 Solar Eclipse Patch.


The times for viewing the solar eclipse on Monday, August 21st in Utah County are:

                - begins at 10:13 am

                - reaches maximum point at 11:33 am

                - ends at 12:59 pm

In 2016 there were new rank requirements as well as a new rank that was incorporated into the Scouting program.  All scouts, regardless of where they are in scouting, must be using the new requirements for rank advancements.  If you are interested in seeing how the requirements changed, look at the document above to see a comparison of old and new requirements.

Also, many merit badge requirements have been revised.  Make sure you are using the latest merit badge requirements when you start working on any badge.
