Communication Merit Badge - Class 2019-07-15 - Monday AM - Scouts BSA

Check out for more class information and links.

It is YOUR responsibility to do the preparation work.  Remember the Scout motto is "Be Prepared" and for Scoutmaster Bucky events that is not a request, that is an expectation.

One requirement that is often neglected is the reading of the merit badge pamphlet (which is the most valuable resource in preparing for the merit badge).  Scouts MUST read the merit badge pamphlet AND bring the pamphlet with them to the class. Reading / Reviewing the merit badge pamphlet is a part of the process of earning a merit badge. 

It is suggested that Scouts consider using a workbook in conjunction with the Scoutmaster Bucky Class Preparation Page for this merit badge.  These have been put together to aid you in successfully making the most out of this merit badge opportunity.  Utilizing these resources will make a significant impact on the timeliness, ease, and effort required to complete this merit badge and it's requirements.  Failure to prepare properly and/or failure to utilize these resources will result in a lower effectiveness and completion rate at the class.  The objective of any Scoutmaster Bucky Merit Badge class opportunity is to aid Scouts in working towards the completion of requirements.  This approach does not focus on the completion of the merit badge, however, as it should be obvious, completion of requirements eventually leads to completion of the merit badge in its entirety.  According to the BSA Guide to Advancement, it must be understood that partial completion of the merit badge is acceptable, and only Scouts who complete all requirements to the satisfaction of the merit badge counselor will receive a completed merit badge sign off. 

Please go to for any additional questions or clarifications.  Class Preparation Pages as well as Scoutmaster Bucky Workbooks can alos be found here.

Class ending time is approximate and may vary slightly based on the dynamics of the Scouts and the counselor. Scoutmaster Bucky Refund Policy states that there will be no refunds anytime after one week prior to the class.
