Merit Badge Counselors
Information About Merit Badge Counseling
Merit badge counselors are the key to success in the merit badge plan. They offer their time, experience, and knowledge to help guide Scouts in one or more of the merit badge subjects. Please note: Unit leaders (Scoutmasters/Assistant Scoutmasters) are not automatically approved to serve as Merit Badge Counselors. Scouts desiring to work with a Merit Badge Counselor should read the Introduction to Merit Badges to understand your rights and responsiblities.
