Scouts are Searching for Merit Badge Counselors

With all the scouts working from home, they have been looking at merit badges they can complete while maintaining social distancing.

In order to facilitate their progress, the troop is looking for adults willing to become merit badge counselors.  You must first complete Youth Protection Training which is done completely on line and valid for two years.  Then you offer to share your knowledge, hobbies, work skills and passions with the scouts.  Please contact Mr. Louwagie to register.

The troop will reimburse each counselor for the purchase of a merit badge pamphlet for each of their badges. These books provide extensive details on how the scouts complete each of the requirements and can be purchased for under $5 at the Scout Shop The troop has a library of books for the scouts to borrow while working on a badge.  There are also workbooks available on-line.

There are over 135 different merit badges, the troop would love to expand our base.
