The Merit badge counselor is a key player in the Boy Scout advancement program. Whatever your area of expertise or interest - whether it is a special craft or hobby (basketry, leatherwork, coin collecting), a profession (veterinary medicine, engineering, aerospace), or perhaps a life skill (cooking, communications)- as a merit badge counselor, you can play a vital role in stirring a young man's curiosity about that particular topic. By serving as a merit badge counselor, you offer your time, knowledge, and other resources so that Scouts can explore a topic of interest. Come enjoy doing that in the Discovery Center.

If interested, we will send you more information about becoming a trained counselor.
