Can You Help a Boy as a Merit Badge Counselor?
Every scout deserves the opportunity to earn any Merit Badge. However, our District has NO counselors registered for these merit badges, so our scouts must go outside our district to earn these badges.
Attention all Cub Scout Leaders and Parents: a simple modification to the Cub Scout Advancement Program allows many more Scouts to reach rank requirements in todays very busy family environment. The changes are effective immediately and give Den Leaders much more flexibility in planning a successful year for their Cub Scouts. More information: here
