Counselor Information

Upon arrival, please check-in at the Counselor check-in table.  Classroom assignments will be available at this time. Session breaks are promoted. Please try to stagger your break times when it is not busy in the halls.  You are invited to join us for lunch.  Please keep your class in your control until the class time is over.

Each boy should have a Merit badge form signed by his Scoutmaster. These will need to filled out with the requirements completed in the class. You will be provided with a class roster as well for the class.  

The Merit Badge Counselor will give credit for COMPLETED requirements only. The Scout should complete all other prerequisite requirements not covered in class prior to the clinic. In some cases, class work will be followed by individual Scout's projects to fulfill all requirements. If a scout is removed from class due to excessive disruptive behavior credit for requirements missed will not be given.

On behalf of the scouts, thank you for being an important part of this year's Merit Badge College.





 


Unit Sign-up Instructions

GENERAL INFORMATION: 




  • $9.00 per Scout (includes lunch)

  • $5.00 per adult (includes lunch)

  • Registration will be opened to units outside of the Uwharrie district on February 19, 2018.

  • Many classes have prerequisites which must be done if you wish to complete the badge during class. Some classes also have age and/or rank requirements. Unless indicated otherwise, all other requirements for the Merit Badge should be covered in class. For ALL classes, Scouts are required to READ and BRING the Merit Badge pamphlet. Also, Scouts are required to BRING a SIGNED Merit Badge Registration form.



RULES FOR PARTICIPATION:




  • Each unit must provide one adult for every 6 boys who participate, or fraction thereof. This will help us with crowd control, as well as insure quality of results within the classroom environment. The parents need to plan on staying and participating in the classrooms to help with things like keeping order, filling out registration, etc. These adults will need to be present when the Troop checks in the day of the event.

  • Scouts must have prior approval from their Scoutmaster before attending. This is indicated by the Scoutmaster's signature on their Merit Badge Registration form.

  • Scouts must behave in a Scout-like manner. Disruptive youth will be removed from the group and either spend the remainder of the day with their Scoutmaster or be picked up by their parent/guardian.

  • The Unit adults are responsible for the scouts who attend.



RIGHT TO LIMIT OR CANCEL: Merit Badges to be offered are subject to change based on MB Counselor availability and class minimums. NO WALK-INS will be allowed. Registration by Troop is REQUIRED. Open and ending enrollment will be limited to the dates above indicated.

FIRST COME FIRST SERVE: Scouts are admitted to classes on a first come, first served basis via the online registration system. There is no waiting list for any of the merit badges classes. Should you encounter booked classes, please monitor this website in case seats become available.

EXPECTATIONS: Scouts are STRONGLY encouraged to read the Merit Badge Booklet and finish all pre-requisites before attending the Merit Badge Clinic. It is also suggested that scouts download and use the merit badge worksheets to complete pre-requisites before and then for note taking during the merit badge class.
(http://usscouts.org/usscouts/mb/worksheets/list.asp). 

FIRST AID STATION: There will be a First Aid Station provided. Local emergency medical services (911) will be utilized if required.

UNIFORM: The Full BSA Class A uniform is the official uniform for the day. The merit badge sash may also be worn.

CODE OF CONDUCT: The Scout Oath, the Law, and the Outdoor Code shall be the code of the Merit Badge Day. A Scout whose conduct is not consistent with the code will be directed to leave the grounds immediately. Adequate supervision must be provided by each participating unit. Discipline is the responsibility of the Scoutmaster or other assigned leaders in charge of the troop.

TRANSPORTATION: The troop leaders must coordinate arrival and departure time for transportation. Troops need to make certain that they have adequate transportation for their Scouts. Troops may not leave Scouts by themselves to be picked up by parents at a later time. We will not render sitting services. Also, the Troop is responsible for each boy's safe passage to and from the event - we will NOT release any boys to individual parents - the Troops are responsible for each boy.

FOOD: The price of the event includes lunch. Food and beverages are NOT allowed in the classroom. Feel free to bring your own refreshments or purchase some at the event.  

CLEAN UP: The Scout is clean. Troop Leaders please coordinate with your troop to clean the premises and to keep the classrooms in the same condition as found. All garbage must be properly disposed into designated containers or carried out.
