special partner: bass pro shops

Bass Pro Shops is honored to support the Boy Scouts of America family. Each September, Bass Pro Shops invites every family, friend, and supporter of the BSA to visit the local Bass Pro Shops store.

In addition, the store offers classes to complete some requirements for outdoor themed-merit badges:
  • All classes offered at the Bass Pro Shops store, 200 Bass Pro Drive, Round Rock, 78665
  • All classes are free but require online registration on a first come, first served basis (click links below to register)
  • Each class is limited to 10 Scouts
  • Class will start on time. Those showing up late may not be able to complete all requirements covered.
  • All merit badge classes taught by Bass Pro Shops employees who are registered BSA Merit Badge Counselors
  • All Boy Scouts will need to secure blue card approval from their Scoutmaster prior to attending a merit badge class
  • Due to facilities constraints, Boy Scouts are not able to earn the entire merit badge by attending only the Bass Pro Shops class. Boy Scouts will have the opportunity to complete the following requirements:
    • Rifle Shooting Merit Badge: requirement 1, and parts a, b, c, d, f, g, h and j of Option A of requirement 2
    • Fishing Merit Badge: requirements 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7 and 8
  • Merit Badge classes are two hours long
  • REMINDER: This is a free educational service. Bass Pro Shops is not responsible for Scouts' safety or behavior. A parent, guardian or adult leader must stay on site for the duration of the workshop and be available to assist if any disciplinary action is needed.
