Merit badges are important at Ransburg Scout Reservation, but keep in mind there are many other activities in camp that are beneficial for Scouts. Sometimes, just “hanging out” in the campsite or around camp is just fine for a Scout. We have qualified staff that holds to the requirements of merit badges as listed. Some of our prerequisites are written work or item that can be completed at home prior to camp. Ten minutes of travel time is built into all merit badge sessions. A merit badge that is from 9:00 am-10:00 am is actually only 50 minutes long. Even with 10 minutes of travel time, getting from one merit badge in Aquatics to another in the STEM Center can be difficult.
Ransburg Scout Reservation makes use of an online merit badge reservation system. We call this the online planner. Generally, the Summer Camp Planner is configured with the current year’s merit badges the first couple weeks in April. Please schedule all of your Scouts using this system.
