Merit Badge Counselor Application
Merit Badge Counselors are those individuals who have an interest and skill in a special area who desire to teach those skills to our youth. This interest may come from your occupation or dedication to a hobby. We ask that you find a badge in a field where you have great experience and are passionate about and offer to share you knowledge with the scouts. There are over 125 merit badges to choose from and you can find the list at MeritBadge.org
REQUIRED PAPERWORK - Merit Badge Counselors must have on file with Council an Adult application with position 42 (merit badge counselor) filled out. This is in addition to one you may filled out for your unit. Second, all Counselors must provide verification of their Youth Protection training which may be taken online at MyScouting.org. Third, every Counselor must have filed a Merit Badge Counselor Application. All of this information must be turned into the District to be included on our distribution list. We highly recommend you review your paperwork with your troop. They also may be able to turn in the completed materials for you.
