Boy Scout Merit Badge Weekend

12:00 am - 11:59 pm

Select weekends are set aside for boy scout troops to visit the Green Bank Observatory and complete activities to earn their astronomy merit badge. Scouts and Chaperones stay in our affordable bunkhouse ($10/person/night, $200/night minimum). Camping is also available in a designated area on the campus ($5/person/night, $150/night minimum). Meals are available in our cafeteria. Most designated weekends are devoted to the Astronomy Merit badge. There is no charge for the Astronomy program. In 2017, we will host one Electronics Merit badge weekend. As we will be soldering electronic kits as part of the program, there is a $5.00/scout charge to cover the cost of the materials.
