Welcome to the 9th annual, LDS Merit Badge Clinic!

Friday & Saturday November 11 & 12, 2016 in Raleigh North Carolina.

Hurricane Matthew had his impact, and then there was the technical problem at our midnight registration. Thanks to all for your patience and understanding.  The site was back up by 12:30 AM, and we’ve had a wonderful first day of registrations with 600 Scouts signing up to work on 1,400 merit badges.  So far we have Scouts coming from NC, SC, GA, VA, MD, NY, (and new this year) AZ.

Registration for the Clinic began at midnight on Friday the 21st  and will continue until November 9th.  We will continue to add more sessions as we are able so check back often on www.meritbadge.info to see what’s open.

The LDS Merit Badge Clinic is sponsored by the Raleigh, Raleigh South, and Apex Stakes of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

Scouts can choose from 70 different Merit Badges this year.

Your choice of eleven locations around the Triangle: Raleigh, Wake Forest, Knightdale, Zebulon, Apex, Cary, Morrisville, Garner, and Fuquay Varina.  We’ve now added Henderson and Pittsboro!

This event is free to all Scouts. We do ask that Scouts bring cans or boxes of non-perishable food. These will be donated to local food banks and pantries. In the past, we have suggested 4-5 cans per merit badge, and happily received whatever you choose to give.  In 2015 we were able to donate 3,900 lbs. of food the local food banks and pantries.  This year, if you are in a position to do so, please multiply your donation by a factor of two or three, being as generous as you can.  Many are suffering because of Hurricane Matthew, and your donation will be received with much gratitude.

You will find answers to most of your questions here under the various tabs.  For more information or to register, go to www.meritbadge.info.  Registration will be open on October 15th.  We are listed under 11/11/2016.

The original purpose of this event was to provide advancement opportunities to both LDS and non-LDS Scouts within the greater Raleigh area.  We were surprised and pleased when Scouts from several east coast states registered for our event.  We are honored to have served Scouts from New York to Florida and beyond.  This Merit Badge Clinic also provides us a way to serve the greater Scouting community and nurture relationships with our non-LDS Scouting friends.

Thanks, Steve & Kelden
