Shooting MBs Completion Day

Posted on Jan 20 2020 - 5:40pm
Circle Ten Council will host a Shooting Merit Badges Completion Day at beautiful Camp James Ray on Saturday, Jan. 25th, from 10 am to 5 pm. [This is the same day as the Group Dynamics lock in but that event doesn't start until later in the evening.] The event is not for starting a Merit Badge. You can only finish up your partial MBs for Shotgun and Rifle started at Winter or Summer Camp. Focus is on the shooting qualifications only; no classroom requirements are being offered. (You may be able to get other requirements signed off if you arrive prepared with completed worksheet and demonstrate knowledge of the requirement.) No instruction (other than shooting) is being offered. You will need to pre-register and bring a blue card signed by a Scoutmaster/ASM. You can register here

Merit Badge Counselor Application Process

Posted on Aug 16 2019 - 4:46am

If you are interested in becoming a Merit Badge Counselor check out the list of Merit Badges under the "Merit Badges" link on the Menu to the left.  Click HERE to find the necessary information form and HERE to complete the BSA Adult application with position Code 42 (Merit Badge Counselor).  Turn all completed forms and supporting documents in to Mike Gandy for review.  All Merit badge counselors must register as adult Scouters and be approved by the council advancement committee for each merit badge listed on this Merit Badge Counselor Information form. A merit badge counselor does not have to pay a registration fee, but must complete an Adult Application for position code 42, fill out this form, and complete BSA Youth Protection training.  Submit the Adult Application with the Merit Badge Counselor Information form to your Troop Merit Badge coordinator, who will review and submit to the district and council.  Counselors may wish to associate with a particular unit but are encouraged to serve any Scout from any unit.
