Merit Badge Counselor

Merit Badge Counselors play a key role in Boy Scout Advancement.  Counselors share their passion, knowledge, time, and other resources as they coach interested Scouts to develop life long hobbies and even careers or become self-supporting adults.  Counselors join fun with learning as Scouts complete the requirements of the Merit Badge by completing hands on activities.
