Merit Badge Counselors

Merit Badge Counselors And Troop Schedule
Under the Merit Badge menu,  you will find the schedule for the Eagle required merit badge classes set within a 2 year time frame.  Scouts, parents AND merit badge counselors: please keep this document close.  It will come in handy when planning your year.

Merit badge counselors…please plan your merit badge class at least a month ahead, let Mr Derr know of your plans and contact Molly Donnelly at mcdonnelly@cox.net with dates and times so your information can go on the website and in the newsletter.

If anyone has some experience or expertise in any of the merit badge topics and would like to volunteer to lead a merit badge class, or help out on one, please contact Mysti Rainwater at mystirainwater@gmail.com to be put on the list.  The troop is in need of merit badge counselors for Environmental Science, Personal Fitness and Sustainability!  Please consider helping. Finally, this schedule is flexible.  If you see a need for your merit badge to be taught outside of this schedule, please feel free to plan and run it at any time.
