Scouts working on Merit Badges need Merit Badge Counselors. They need you… It’s not a difficult gig just sign up for up to 4 topics that you are skilled in, they will reach out to you.
How to become a Merit Badge Counselor
Turn in your application AND a completed Adult Scouting Application (yes again), with position “#42” listed for Merit Badge Counselor to the San Luis Rey District Merit Badge Coordinator. Or ask your unit leader to submit your form at Roundtable to the District Advancement Chairman.
Do NOT turn it into the Council office. Turning in applications at the Council office will slow down the processing time significantly.
