Duke Energy Merit Badge Encampment

The Duke Energy Merit Badge Encampment is back for its 27th year! The event starts on Friday, May 8 with an optional camp-out on the lawn of the EnergyExplorium. Scouts will then spend Saturday, May 9 earning their merit badge. This year 23 merit badges will be offered.

Online registration will open Monday, March 16 at 10 a.m.

Space is limited, so please be sure to register on opening day. Because space is limited in every class, we cannot guarantee every registrant will be placed in their first choice.

Here are a few things to consider when registering:

  • Only one scoutmaster should register the entire troop.
  • Please be sure to register your troop all at once.
  • The EnergyExplorium will not take registration over the phone. No exceptions!
  • Make sure you know the classes you are registering your scouts for ahead of time. This will make the registration process a lot quicker.
  • Certain classes will reach capacity quickly. Please be flexible.
  • Registration will close automatically once registration reaches 500 scouts.
