Reminders

  • Only a Certified Merit Badge Counselor may sign off on a merit badge. He or she must be at least 18 years old, a registered Scouter, and qualified to teach the subject. Counselors must also receive the approval of the council advancement committee.
  • A Merit Badge Counselor is unable to meet with a Scout or have contact with a Scout unless another Leader, Adult or Scout is part of the conversation/meeting.  
  • Scouts must use Youth Protection Safety Guidelines of 2-Deep Leadership when emailing a Merit Badge Counselor.  This means the Scout must email the Merit Badge Counselor with a parent or Scout Leader copied on any and all emails.  
  • Scouts must also follow the Scout Buddy System. You must have another person with you at each meeting with the merit badge counselor. This person can be your parent or legal guardian, or another registered adult.
