Merit Badge FAQ:
Q: How early in advance do I need to book our program?
A: We require a minimum of one month’s notice to schedule your merit badge program. However, our calendars can fill up quickly, so we recommend the sooner the better.
Q: When is payment due?
A: A full payment is due at the time of booking in order to reserve your date. Payments can be made over the phone utilizing a credit/debit card or in person. All checks must be made payable to FD Roosevelt State Park.
Q: Who will be leading the program for my scout group?
A: One of professionally trained Interpretive Rangers will be leading the program of your choice.
Q: What if my troop wants assistance for a merit badge not listed above?
A: The Interpretive Ranger can conduct other merit badge programs upon request, depending on the subject matter and the time given to prepare. If a full merit badge program is not feasible, the Interpretive Ranger can provide individual guidance/counseling on the topic. Some programs may require additional fees if there is a material cost involved.
