Partial Merit Badges
The purpose of Del-Mi District's Merit Badge University is to help Scouts along the advancement trail by allowing them to get a good start on a merit badge. The program is NOT designed for Scouts to earn every merit badge in each class they sign up for. Scouts that do not complete all of the requirements for a particular merit badge at the Merit Badge University will need to complete the badge with a registered merit badge counselor approved for that particular badge back at their unit. The merit badge counselor instructing the badge at the Merit Badge University may not be available to finish counseling the Scout. If there is an error in the catalog concerning Merit Badge requirements then National BSA Merit Badge requirements are followed and cannot be changed.
