About Microsoft Store Merit Badge Classes

  • All classes offered at the Microsoft Store at The Domain shopping center.
  • All merit badge classes are taught by Microsoft Store employees who are registered BSA Merit Badge Counselors.
  • Each class is limited to 15 Scouts; there will be a "wait list" of up to 10 Scouts for each class.
  • Merit Badge classes are three hours long.
  • Those showing up late to class may not be able to complete all requirements covered.
  • This is a free educational service. The Microsoft Store is not responsible for Scouts' safety or behavior.

Signing up for a class

  • All classes are free but require online registration (click links below to register).
  • If you are one of the first 15 Scouts to register, you are guaranteed to be in the class.
  • If you are one of the next 10 Scouts to register, you are on the "wait list".
  • You will receive an email confirmation whether you are in the class or on the wait list.
  • If you are on the wait list, PLEASE DO NOT show up to the class "just in case someone doesn't show up". A Scout is Courteous.
  • If one of the first 15 Scouts drops out of the class and a spot opens up, people on the wait list will receive an email telling them they are now in the class (wait list is in order of date/time you tried to register).

Scouts' Responsibilities Before and After Class

  • Get "blue card" approval from your Scoutmaster prior to attending a merit badge class (what is a "blue card" and why do Scouts need to do this?).
  • Review the merit badge book/pamphlet/digital pamphlet for the class before you attend so you will be able to make the most of your time in class.
  • DO NOT leave class without having your instructor sign off on the requirements you completed on your blue card.
  • Neither The Microsoft Store nor our council office will keep a record of your blue card and/or which requirements you completed in class. It is your responsibility to keep track of this.
  • It is your responsibility to turn in your signed blue card to your Scoutmaster/unit leader as proof you completed the merit badge.

Parents' Responsibilities Before and After Class

  • A parent, guardian or adult leader must stay on site for the duration of the workshop and be available to assist if any disciplinary action is needed.
