NOTICE: MB Participation

Posted on Sep 28 2022 - 12:28pm

Scouts and Parents,

We've noticed a large amount of scouts who signed up for Merit Badges are not showing up to class. Our MB counselors work very hard to prepare materials for you every class, and we count on your participation. Some classes are only offered once a year, and we limit those classes to ensure you have time and space to ask questions and learn. We also usually have waiting lists for our most popular classes. We understand that plans change, so please email your counselor and remove yourself from the troop website signup 48 hours before class. If you have an illness or family emergency, please contact your counselor to let them know asap.
