Merit Badge Counselors Needed for the 2017 Merit Badge College

The Muskingum Valley Council of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is pleased to announce planning is under way for the 2017 Merit Badge College.  The event will take place at:

Tri-Valley Middle School

The council is seeking Merit Badge Counselors (current or new) to assist as volunteers with the event.  The theme of the event is “On Track to Eagle” and we hope to offer as many of the Eagle Required Merit Badges as the schedule and time will allow.  However, counselors for non-Eagle Required Merit Badges are still encouraged and welcome to volunteer to help with the program’s diversity of offerings.
