Merit Badges and Counselors


Do you have the skills, experience or education to become a merit badge counselor for our scouts?

With the retirements of several Troop 29 merit badge counselors over the past two years – our troop is in great need for new blood/counselors to work with the boys wanting to earn merit badges. There are 134 different merit badges the boys can choose from – subjects range from outdoors activities, craftsmanship, sports, professional fields and a wide variety of others. Here is a link of all the different categories available to the scouts: Check it out – there could be a skill right up your alley!

  • To qualify as a merit badge counselor, you must:
  • Be at least 18 years old and of good character.
  • Be registered with the Boy Scouts of America.

  • Be recognized as having the skills and education in the merit badge subjects covered and hold any required qualifications and training as outlined in the Guide to Safe Scouting or the Guide to Advancement—or use others so qualified.
