Troop 42 Scouts and Families!

Monticello Merit Mania (a Merit Badge University) is being held on Saturday, Nov 9th, from 7:30 AM to 4:00 PM and is a great opportunityfor 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 forSwimming 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 isnt 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 Sunday, Oct 20th, and you must have funds in your Scout account by Monday, Oct 21st, to cover your registration and lunch, if you are purchasing one. 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 has not been made available yet. It will be updated, here, once it is available. 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 Scouts attending, we may be able to take the troop bus. In that case, additional information will be sent out for times and meeting location. But until that is determined, parents need to plan to arrange transportation to and from this event. Carpooling may be an option as well.Mr. Ryan will be attending the MBU, but we could use help from additional adults as chaperones.

Sign up now - dont miss this opportunity!
