(posted 2017-01-10)

Register now for the Spring 2017 Merit Badge College.  Hosted by the York District Advancement Committee at Sanford High School (Sanford, ME) on the following Thursday evenings:  April 13, April 27, May 11, and May 25.  Session 1 runs from 6:00pm to 7:15pm; Session 2 runs from 7:15pm to 8:30pm.

Offerings include Citizenship in the Community, Citizenship in the World, Collections, Indian Lore, Forestry, Geocaching, First Aid, Engineering, Environmental Science, Personal Management, and Fire Safety.

PRE-REQUISITES:  Registration for Personal Management Merit Badge closes on February 15, 2017.  Scout candidates are required to contact the Counselor, Jed Cobb (cobb_productions@yahoo.com) prior to February 23, 2017 for the proper record keeping format file to meet the 90-day recording requirement.

Pre-registration is on a first-come, first-served basis and is required in advance using the online form below.  Some Merit Badge sessions are subject to cancellation at any time.  There is no cost to attend this Merit Badge College.  Questions may be sent to mbc2017@yorkdistrict.org.  Scouts should attend all sessions in complete BSA Scout Field Uniform and Be Prepared with a notebook, pen/pencil and any Merit Badge books necessary for requirement fulfillment.  Scouts also need to bring a Scoutmaster-signed and properly-completed Merit Badge Application Form (Blue Card) with them to the first session.  Scouts are expected to attend every session of the college

Notes to Parents and Scout Leaders:  There has been some misunderstanding on the role of the ”Merit Badge College.”  These sessions are intended to be educational for the Scouts that have registered and attended, as the word College implies.  This event is not intended to be a Merit Badge sign-off conference.  We encourage Scouts to contact approved Counselors for sign-offs for requirements and work completed outside the College event, as the College format is not intended for that purpose.

We look forward to having Scouts participate in the York District Spring 2017 Merit Badge College!
