Sponsor Information
Troop 347 is part of the National Capitol Area Council, Western Shore District in Southern Maryland.  We meet on Mondays at Trinity United Methodist Church, and sponsor an annual Merit Badge College.
Description
Troop 347 is hosting a Merit Badge College on March 3, 2018 at the Dunkirk Baptist Church on Route 4, just north of Dunkirk MD from 7:30 - 4:00.



The cost is $15 for the day and includes a pizza lunch for scouts.  ALL SCOUTS MUST PRE-REGISTER, NO WALK-INS WILL BE PERMITTED.  



Any approved volunteers that would like to help please contact Michelle Lozier at michelle_lozier@yahoo.com.   2nd adults are needed in each classroom.  Thank you!



Adults who are not counselors may purchase lunch for $5 at the event(pizza, drink, fruit and dessert.)  Please notify Michelle Lozier by e-mail (michelle_lozier@yahoo.com) if you would like to order  lunch; advance notice is appreciated so we have enough for all participants.

 

SCHEDULE:


7:30 am Registration begins



8:15am-8:30am Opening flag & announcements



8:30am-11:45am Morning session



11:45am-12:30pm Lunch


12:30-3:45pm Afternoon session

3:45pm-4:00pm Close 




All participants must come prepared. SCOUTS MUST BRING A SIGNED BLUE CARD!!! Please read your merit badge book and worksheets and bring it with you. Prerequisites should be completed to the extent possible. Any requirements that instruct you to "BRING", "COLLECT", "WRITE" OR "DISCUSS" should be brought with you neatly prepared and proofread for accuracy. Completion of merit badges is NOT GUARANTEED. Scouts that are not fully prepared may not complete the badge but can receive partial credit on blue cards for requirements that are completed.

 

UNIFORM: All scouts must wear Class A uniform.




MATERIALS NEEDED:

 

  • Notebook and pencil or pen

  • Merit badge blue cards signed by your Scoutmaster with your name, address and Troop number 

  • ALL prerequisite items for each class

  • Merit badge book and worksheets for each course you are taking

  • Scout spirit!


ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

Classes are limited in size to insure quality instruction. Early registration will avoid conflicts in scheduling. Please contact Michelle Lozier at Michelle_lozier@yahoo.com if you have any difficulties with registration.



For the safety and security of participants, scouts are not permitted to leave the facility during the day. All activities are conducted in accordance with BSA Youth Protection Guidelines. It is our intent to create an environment where the scouts have an opportunity to continue their advancement program and earn merit badges that may not be readily available elsewhere. It is NOT our intention to create a so-called "merit badge factory" that produces merit badges with minimal work required from the scouts. Scouts who come with that expectation will be disappointed at the end of the day. Merit badge courses are planned and presented by qualified adult counselors who are willing to take the time to share their knowledge with the scouts.

 


 


Counselor Information
Each scout is responsible for bringing his own blue card (signed by his scoutmaster) to class.  Please return blue card to scout upon completion of session; retain the "counselor record" for your personal files. It is the scout's responsibility to turn his blue cards in to his unit advancement chair to be recorded and awarded the merit badge.



Any approved volunteers that would like to help please contact Michelle Lozier at michelle_lozier@yahoo.com.   2nd adults are needed in each classroom.  Thank you!
Unit Sign-up Instructions
Please note that we are offering one all-day merit badge this year (First Aid). If a scout chooses First Aid, he is only able to take that badge and no others during the day.

Registration begins at 7:30 and opening is at 8:15.

Please have a signed blue card for each merit badge a scout is taking.  It is the scout's responsibility to turn his blue cards in to his unit advancement chair to be recorded and awarded the merit badge.  

Each scout should also have a signed permission slip.  Please have your scout bring this to the event; there are too many scouts to keep track of electronic copies.  Please copy and paste the text below into a word document; unfortunately I cannot add attachments to the site.

1.) Go to www.meritbadge.info



2.) Enter the "Merit Badge Registration System"
