Merit Badge Counselor Orientation

Interesting in giving back to scouting but not sure how? Volunteer to be a Merit Badge Counselor and learn all about the how, why, and what of being a Merit Badge Counselor. This is a great informational meeting for new and not so new scouting adults. All Adults (cub scouts and boy scouts) are encouraged to bring a friend – do you have a family member, co-worker, or friend that has a career, hobby or passion that a boy scout might enjoy? Bring them along – signing up to be a Merit Badge Counselor is free.

Here is the flyer and a list of all merit badges for 2017
