Merit Badge counselor information

Posted on Apr 8 2017 - 6:58pm

We made a large number of Merit Badge counselor updates. I encourage all Scouts to click on the Merit Badge Resources link to review the current Merit Badge Counselor list in order to determine the current counselor for your area of interest.

Parents we are always looking for volunteers. We would love to add you to the list of Merit Badge Counselors if your vocation or hobby matches a Merit Badge. Our biggest needs are Camping, Hiking, Environmental Science, Orienteering, and then any Merit Badge for which we have either one or no counselors.

Please contact me if you have any questions regarding the Merit Badge counselor updates.

Thank you,

ASM McRae davidmcrae@troop928.org
