Clark's Bears in Lincoln, NH will be hosting three Merit Badge Fair days in September. We have talented Merit Badge Counselors that are specialized in Railroading, Citizenship in the World, Mammal Study, Environmental Science, Fire Safety, Coin Collecting and First Aid. Each day we will offer three different badges. All three badges can be completed in one day; as long as the prerequisite work has been completed adequately. After each presentation, the counselors will sign blue cards for Scouts who have attended and successfully completed all prerequisite work. This event does sell out, so book early!.

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 $23 rate per person but they must be included in the registration. Once the Scouting event is sold out, additional family member tickets will be available online until they are sold out.

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 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:
