We are proud to be able to support Scouts during this fluid time! Scouts signing up for Virtual Merit Badge classes will be able to work with counselors in a group setting, safely from their own homes.

After reviewing IMPORTANT INFORMATION below please SCROLL DOWN for schedule of classes.



Review all information provided below before registering or emailing with questions.

We are a local BSA Council, and do not have world-wide staff that can answer questions 24/7 which area already answered below. Your patience is appreciated.

Merit Badge subjects can be challenging, lengthy and technical. Many require work outside the classroom setting; therefore, it is most likely that Scouts will NOT complete all the requirements for a selected Merit Badge in one day.


  • Participation requires a good WiFi connection, computer (with audio and video) access and ability to log on to Bluejeans Network for video conferencing.


  • Program will begin at 9 am (sign on by 8:50 am) and will continue with intermittent breaks throughout the class to between 1:30 PM and 3+ PM, dependent on the merit badge and number of scouts taking the class. A lunch break of 1/2 hour will be taken between 11:30 AM and 1:00 PM. Class size can range from 2 -15 participants.


  • $40 per day. A session with a slash(/) in the title means the participants will work on both Merit Badges during the day.An "*" after the class title denotes the scout must be 14 years or older to take the class.?


  • There is no splitting the program nor can you leave the program for another class, or appointment.  Do not register if you cannot commit to the whole class. Your leaving early can jeopardize the continuation of the class for the remaining scout. (Sometimes you need the class; sometimes the class needs you.) Dependent on the instructor one or the other class can be started first or they can be intermingled. There is no guarantee that one particular class will be given at one particular time during the day.  


  • Submission of the Merit Badge Workbook (filled out from class participation) and copy of registration receipt for the class will be required for sign off on completed requirements on the blue card (provided by the SFBAC). They can be scanned and emailed to: for the processing and mailing out of the blue card. DO NOT SEND VIA GOOGLE DOCS. YOU WILL BE ASKED TO CONVERT THEM TO PDFS.


  • Scouts should conduct themselves per the Scout Oath and Law; for example, dress and have the background behind them free of inappropriate messages, pictures, etc.; all work submitted should be their original work.


  • Scouts will be responsible for obtaining the Merit Badge workbook through if they choose to work on prerequisites before class.


  • An email with the log on information will be sent after 5 pm the night before the class.
