Attention Parents and Leaders – we will have Merit Badge Counselor Training on Thursday, April 2nd from 7 pm – 8:30 pm
This training, led by Northern Star District, will provide you with all of the information you need to become a Merit Badge Counselor.
What is a Merit Badge Counselor, you ask?
As you know, a large part of Scouting consists of the boys earning Merit Badges. Badges can be earned at various camps and classes but also on an individual basis. That is where the Merit Badge Counselor comes in. When a boy chooses to work on a badge on his own, he must work with a Merit Badge Counselor.
If you have an area of interest or expertise in one or more of the current Merit Badges and would like to share your knowledge, then you are a good candidate to be a Merit Badge Counselor.
The course will cover the requirements of a Merit Badge Counselor, what the duties/expectations are of a Merit Badge Counselor and what you need to do to become a Merit Badge Counselor.
If you would like to attend, there are TWO options for signing up. There is a sign up sheet at the Scout House OR you can register online by clicking HERE.
