COST - The cost of the Merit Badge Fair is $27 per person, which includes two Merit Badge presentations (for Scouts BSA) and entrance into Clark's Bears. Your ticket includes all rides, all shows, all day.

REGISTRATION - Registration is online only and must be received by April 30, 2022 to participate. Full payment by credit card is required at the time of registration. Scouts are able to register independently or with their Troop. This program does sell out, so register early to avoid disappointment. Canceled registrations will not receive a refund. Instead, they will receive tickets to visit Clark's Bears another day during the 2022 season.

FAMILY MEMBERS - The Scout's family is welcome to visit Clark's as well, but only Scouts and Troop Leaders are allowed into the presentations. Family members ages 4 and above will receive the $27 rate per person but they must be included in the registration.

BLUE CARDS - The blue cards need to be signed in advance by your Scoutmaster and neatly filled out for each presentation you are taking. This includes the Scout's name, troop number, address and badge name on all three sections of the blue card. Simply attending a presentation does not mean a blue card will be signed. Scouts must complete prerequisite work, participate in discussions and activities and meet the requirements.

PREREQUISITES - Print the worksheet for each Merit Badge you wish to participate in by going to www.meritbadge.info. Complete the perquisites listed in the course description. Bring your worksheet, workbook, and pencils with you. If you completed prerequisite work that cannot be brought with you, please bring a photograph of the work you did. If multiple Scouts worked on a project, have each Scout submit a photograph with their work.

INCOMPLETE WORK - It is our goal to have every Scout leave the Merit Badge Fair with a completed blue card. However, this isn't always the case. If a Scout is unable to complete all the prerequisite work by the day of the Merit Badge Fair, they will receive full credit for the requirements fulfilled by the counselor's presentation and credit for each prerequisite completed fully. If the prerequisite work did not have enough content, the counselor will make notes for the Scout to correct. The Scout will have one month to mail improved or completed work along with their blue card to Clark's Bears with a self addressed stamped envelope. The counselor will look over your work and sign your blue card if complete. Please mail to:

SUPPLIES - Bring pencils, paper, Merit badge book, Merit Badge Work Sheet and a smile. For the Coin Collecting Badge, there is an additional $15 fee. Scouts please put your coins in a zip lock or other secure container with your name on them! Your supplies will be returned to you after the class.

UNIFORM - Class A uniforms are preferred for this event.

FOOD - Lunch, drinks and snacks are available for purchase at Clark's. You may also choose to bring a bagged lunch if you so desire.

CHECK-IN - Registered guests need to meet at the Anaconda Escape Raft Ride gate from 9:00-10:30 for check-in. At that time, each Scout will turn in the prerequisite work for each badge they are registered for. All prerequisites work must have the Scouts name and Troop number on every page. Please prepare this paperwork PRIOR to arrival. At check-in you will receive a hand stamp that allows you to come and go from the park during the day. Should you be arriving later than 10:30 please go to the railroad station for check-in.
