The Vonage Merit Badge Fair will be held at the Vonage Headquarters (23 Main St) in Holmdel New Jersey and will start at 8am on Saturday December 3rd, 2016 and end at 5pm depending on the Merit Badge(s). This Merit Badge Fair is open to all Boy Scouts and will include both Eagle Required as well as Elective Merit Badges.
Textile is a rare, easy and fun badge where you get to make felt, but has limited capacity! CyberChip is required for the new BSA 2016 rank requirements for Star and for Scout, so we have four sessions planned. Webelos Arrow of Light candidates need CyberChip for the Scout rank.
Please note the times of the MB you select to attend, as well as the prerequisites. Free pizza will be provided for lunch as well as a unique Patch! Please bring a water bottle.

If you don't see a Merit Badge that you want to take, be sure to suggest it to us. We will try to add it next year.
The Counselors will follow the exact Merit Badge requirements specified by BSA, and are fully trained and registered as a Counselor. Each Counselor determined their maximum class size, and the required length of time that badge typically takes them to lead. We are offering as many Merit Badges as we have Counselors! We offer multiple sessions of the same Merit Badge if we have two instructors or if we can offer it more than once throughout the day.
For financial hardships, please email the organizer below. Refunds are no longer available after 11/21/16.
