Register early to reserve your preferred merit badges and a lunch.

See link below to view prerequisites for the merit badges.  If you do not see the merit badge listed in the link then the Occoquan District has not been informed that any prior work will be needed.  As always, per BSA guidelines, Scouts should obtain and read the pamphlet for a merit badge as they get started.


This year the Occoquan District again has a number of great classes, which includes most of the Eagle Required badges and some other fun and exciting badges such as Chess, Space Exploration, Plumbing, Law, and Engineering!

If your Scout wants to do only a morning or an afternoon class, please email the Occoquan District for accommodations.

Some classes, such as Leatherwork, have a small extra charge for necessary supplies.  Please see the note when selecting classes.

Rifle Shooting is canceled this year, but might be added at a later date, or offered at a different time. If you would like to be notified about this please email the Occoquan District.
