Merit Badge Counselor Training

We are looking for more adults to be willing to become merit badge counselors. Please take a look at the over 100 merit badges that are available and see what aligns with your occupation, hobbies or interests. Everyone should be able to find at least 1 or 2. For those of you that think they might be interested in becoming a merit badge counselor but aren’t sure what to do or for those who are on the fence Troop 899 will be holding a merit badge counselor training on Thursday Dec 5 at 7:30 (concurrent with the troop meeting). Please contact Sharon Gardner sh1ar2on3@gmail.com
