Merit Badge Jamboree 2019
Colonial District Merit Badge Jamboree Online Registration 2019
**To earn any badges, Scouts must complete prerequisites before the Jamboree**
You are encouraged to review the attachment, which can be downloaded under Attachments in the narrow column to the right. It includes a list of all courses as well as the requirements scouts need to complete in order to earn each merit badge.
Scouts should discuss which merit badges they intend to pursue with their unit leaders prior to registering as they would before pursuing any merit badge. While we prepare "blue cards" as a convenience to units and scouts, a scout is Trustworthy, so we are certain that scouts will abide by this requirement.
Scouts are responsible for preparing for or completing some requirements prior to the day of the Merit Badge Jamboree. Scouts who do not prepare will be unable to complete the merit badge requirements at the Jamboree.
The Colonial District 2019 Merit Badge Jamboree will be held on Saturday, February 2 from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM at Bishop Ireton High School, 201 Cambridge Rd, Alexandria VA 22301. The cost is $20 per scout, which includes lunch and a patch.
There are three types of offerings:
- Half-Day Badges—these badges are offered in the AM (9:30-Noon) and/or the PM (1-3:30).
- Lunch-Time Badges—these badges require all work to be done in advance; counselors will be available at lunch time to review the work and sign off.
- Full-Day Badge—only one badge, Search & Rescue, requires both the AM and PM session to complete. Scouts enrolled in Search & Rescue may also earn lunch-time badges, but will be unable to participate in any other offerings.
All courses have enrollment limits to ensure a quality experience for each Scout who participates.
The limits and schedules are described in the attachment available for download under Attachments in the narrow column to the right.
