Event Details

Troop 42 Scouts and Families!

Monticello Merit Mania (a Merit Badge University) is being held on Saturday, Nov 10th from 7:30 AM to 4:00 PM and is a great opportunity for Scouts to work on merit badges in a focused, group setting.  Some badges can be completed in a day, while some will require additional outside work.  These sessions can offer Scouts an opportunity to work on some merit badges not typically offered in the troop or at summer camp.  Mr. Ryan is coordinating this event so contact him with any questions by email at:

 * indicates Eagle required MB; Scouts may only sign-up for ONE Eagle required MB.

Scouts signed up for Swimming or Disability Awareness merit badges will be taking the Camp Courageous bus to their location from the high school and Scouts will need a signed release form.


Scouts may select up to 2 half day merit badges (1 in the morning and/or 1 in the afternoon) or 1 all day merit badge.  Though, Scouts may only sign-up for 1 Eagle required merit badge, whether it is a half day or all day.  Scouts should specify their top 3 choices and enter the merit badge names in order of preference in the Eventbrite registration page.  Note the merit badge prerequisites listed in the table, above.  Scouts will need to bring proof of completion of the prerequisites to the MBU.


Mr. Ryan will login and attempt to secure your spot as soon as you register but it isn’t official until you have funds in your account to cover the fees.  Half day merit badges cost $10 each and all day merit badges cost $20.  The deadline for sign-up is Friday, Oct 19th, and you must have funds in your Scout account by Monday, Oct 22nd, to cover your registration and lunch, if you are purchasing one.  The meeting on the 22nd is not a regular troop meeting, but is a committee meeting.  Questions about your Scout account can be emailed to


You may bring your own sack lunch or pre-purchase a lunch for $8.  Lunches cannot be purchased on-site.  This year's menu is a hamburger with all the fixings, chips, baked beans, cookie and lemonade.  Vending machines are available to purchase additional snacks, but no change machines are available.  If you would like to purchase a lunch, be sure to indicate this in the Eventbrite registration page.


If we have enough Scout attendees, we may be able to travel on the Troop 42 bus.  Otherwise, parents will be responsible for transportation to and from this event.  Car pooling can be an option. As we get closer to the date and the registration is closer to being finalized, additional details will be sent out.  Mr. Ryan and Mr. Cole will be attending the MBU, but we could use help from additional adults as chaperones.


Sign up now - don’t miss this opportunity!
