Changes and reminders for 2024

  • All adults at Pathways to Eagle MUST BE REGISTERED - No Exceptions.
  • Be Prepared Registration closes on 07/24/2024 - No additional Scouts and/or Units can be added after 07/24/2024.
  • After 07/28/2024, registration will be closed and no changes can be made. Also to be sure that all your Scouts get into the Merit Badge sessions they want, you will need to have them assigned to Merit Badge sessions before 07/28/2024.
  • Boy Scouts attending P2E as part of a Cub Scout Pack CANNOT be assigned to Merit Badges. To work on Merit Badges a Scout MUST be registered in a Troop.
  • Due to a combination of changing BSA policies and P2E policies, Family units will not be offered in 2023. Please register with your troop.
  • There will be FREE cold water available near the Merit Badge and/or Kitchen area for Scouters to refill their canteen or other refillable bottle.
  • We would like for all leaders, adults, and Scouts/Cubs to bring a canteen or a refillable plastic bottle to Pathways. We will provide all the cold water anyone needs. Our intent is to try to reduce the amount of materials that we recycle annually. We would like to become more environmentally friendly. We will however still have cold water as always available for purchase.
  • Each Scout MUST have a list of six to nine merit badges they would like to work on to be able to complete the registration process.
  • Adults that register with their units and who are P2E Merit Badge Counselors this year can have their individual registration fee reduced. Please inform our Merit Badge Coordinator so she can comunicate with our Registration Coordinator.
  • You will be able to pay your registration fees online. You will be able to pay using the secure PayPal process. You can pay using your PayPal account or by major credit card. . If you cannot pay online please reach out to Registration and they can assist you.
  • As BSA requires 2-deep leadership the registration system is set up that you can not register any youth until there are at least two adults registered.
  • We use an online registration process on our website. If your unit wishes to mail in their registration information for a P2E committee member to enter in the system, there is a manual registration fee of $4.00 per individual on top of the regular registration fee.
  • ALL individual registrations MUST be completed by 07/28/2024 so that information can be given to the Merit Badge Counselors.
  • No changes in assigned Merit Badges can be made after 07/28/2024. Since the unit leader can place Scouts in Merit Badge sessions the Scouts should be prepared for the Merit Badges that they requested.
  • Unit reservation deadline is July 25, 2024. Your unit MUST be registered in order to participate.
  • Individual registrations deadline is July 25, 2024.
    A $8.00 late registration fee for all individual registrations received after the July 25, 2024 deadline.
    Note: Completed blue cards will NOT be mailed unless all registration fees are paid, including late fees.
  • BSA policy prohibits smoking in the presence of Scouts, a designated smoking area has been setup for smoking. In addition Village rules do NOT allow smoking within 15 feet of any building entrance.
  • As with all Scouting events, Scouts are not allowed to leave the event grounds.

  • Pathways to Eagle will supply blue cards, DO NOT give the Scouts blank blue cards to use.
  • Because of changes to Merit Badges requirements much of the Merit Badge session preparation work has been redone this year. Be sure that you and the Scout review the preparation work needed for each merit badge a Scout wants to take and be sure that they know what is expected of them and they'll be ready to answer questions. Scouts are encouraged to make use of the Merit Badge worksheets that are available from Scouting web sites. By using the worksheets they can have more work done before the session starts and be ready for testing by the Merit Badge counselor.
  • Because of changes to Merit Badge Requirements, please be aware of all changes and know what is expected for prerequisites. All Merit Badge Requirements are on our website

  • Ice Skating will be available at Rocket Ice Arena
