Double Knot Registration Instructions

Greater Tampa Bay Area Council Registration Policy

Registration for merit badge academies is done by group. Once the leader registers his group and enters the first and last name of each participant, those records will be available to that leader for future registrations. Also, unless confirmation is received in advance from the Event Director, wait listed Scouts will not be admitted to classes. Late registrations will be accepted at the door for available classes, which may be very limited, and will incur a $5 late fee per Scout.

***Prerequisites may be modified at a later date.  Many badges will have requirements that must be completed at a time other than at the Merit Badge Academy***
