Permission & Electronic Blue Cards
Scouts BSA Scouts should discuss which badge they are registering for with their unit leader prior to signing up. Everyone is required to come to the camps with prior permission for the badge that they are taking, from their Unit Leader (no physical blue card required).
ALL Blue Cards are required to be handled digitally. When you register your respective scout(s) for their merit badge sessions, you are confirming their electronic blue card has been approved by a unit leader, which is made available to you with real time updates, through your login, at Onteora.org.
All units earning advancement in camp must submit their advancements to their Council. Be sure to submit record of your scout's progress to your unit's advancement chair.
If a scout does not complete all of the requirements for a merit badge during the session, they will receive a “Partial Completion” and have their digital Blue Card returned indicating the requirements that were completed. Scouts can earn the badge by completing the requirements with a counselor at home, summer camp, etc. Scouts cannot “fail” Merit Badges; there are only different levels of completion. Note: Please check the most recent merit badge pamphlet for the most current information.
Please make sure to check for prerequisites listed below, when registering for badges. Prerequisites can be done prior to arrival. If not completed beforehand, Scouts will receive a partial.
