The merit badge classes with the career professionals are interactive and require active participation by each Scout. Merit badge class sizes will be limited so that each Scout will have the opportunity to learn about the career profession while working on merit badge requirements. Scouts can sign up for the Health Care ProfessionsLaw or Surveying Merit Badge classes.
