  • Intro To Philmont
  • Intro To Sea Base

For Merit Badge College 2016, troops will have to sign up online. Course sign up will be on a first come, first serve basis. Using online registration, Scoutmasters can immediately determine course availability and troop status. Registering online will also enable Scoutmasters to find and easily solve scheduling problems on the fly.

Epsilon Tau Pi encourages troops to pre-register online to ensure a position in classes for each scout.

Registration Period

Your primary contact will be sent information regarding the scout signup period, which will begin soon. Class space is limited, so act quickly.

When registering, it is important to provide a valid email address and a valid mailing address. Both are necessary to receive updates and information about MBC and to receive blue cards after MBC has concluded.


The cost of Merit Badge College 2016 is $15.00 per scout. When sending payment, please send only one check from your troop. (See Requirements section below).

Day of Registration

Day of registration will not be permitted this year.

There are several reasons for this:

  • Counselors will receive up-to-date rosters from the start of the first session
  • Scheduling conflicts due to late registration will be eliminated
  • Provide a better overall experience for scouts and scoutmasters


Properly filled out blue cards are essential to the smooth operation of MBC. In order to be accepted into MBC, each troop must provide legible blue cards with the scoutmaster signature, troop, district, council, and merit badge name for each scout.
