*Some merit badges have a requirement that must be completed before PowWow. Please view the worksheets beforehand to see which requirements will need extra time to complete.
Registration is $21 per Scout and will be available online (the quickest method) or in person beginning at 9:00 a.m. Wednesday, January 21, for Scouts in the Utah National Parks Council and at 8:00 a.m. Thursday, January 22, for all other Scouts. Registration will continue until Monday, February 23, at 5:00 p.m. (as long as space is available). Please note that the Scout’s parent or legal guardian must be the one to complete the registration (to create a personal log-in and select security questions for the account).
Note: Some walk-in space will be available on the first day of PowWow. HOWEVER, that space will be very limited; we cannot guarantee that every class will have open spaces.
Scheduling is on a first-come, first-served basis. We will honor scheduling requests to the best of our ability. Full tuition payment is due on registration.
To register by Internet, click on the registration button above. After clicking the “Register Now” button, you can log in using a Scout‘s Net ID and password, or you can create a Net ID. After logging in, you will be guided through the registration process. Please note that when you register for a Scout, you should enter his information—but please use a parent‘s email address, as we often communicate about the program by email.
During the registration process, a Scout may register for up to three merit badges. Each merit badge class will have a section letter assigned as well as a time (e.g., Art, Section B, 9:00–10:05 a.m.). All Scouts who register for the same section and time will be in the same class. If one section is full, the Scout can choose another section. When different sections of the same merit badge are in different classrooms, this will be indicated. A Scout may return to the registration page until 5:00 p.m. February 23 to change his selection to a different section or merit badge, as long as there is still space available.
A confirmation page showing class locations and times will be sent to those who register. Please have your Scout bring this schedule with him each day of the PowWow.
The PowWow has limited enrollment. The registration fee is $21 per Scout even if he registers for only one class. No registrations, refund requests, or class changes can be accepted after 5:00 p.m. Monday, February 23, 2015.
