Virtual Merit Badge College | New Hanover County Fire Rescue & Cape Fear Council

Date: August 15 - August 15 | Time: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

The Cape Fear Council is excited to partner with New Hanover County Fire Rescue to offer a Merit Badge College on August 15th.  Merit Badge Classes will be offered as a morning session and an afternoon session, each session will be $20. Morning classes will begin at 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM and Afternoon classes will begin at 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM. While most merit badges can be completed during the class time, there are some requirements that will need to be completed either before or after the class by the Scout. Zoom will be the online platform used for Virtual Merit Badges and class links will be emailed on August 14th once registration closes. Classes are first come, first serve and will have a limited class size of 20 participants. We hope to continue adding additional merit badges to our course catalog.
