Latest news from

As many of you may know, the BSA has updated its Youth Protection Program for 2018. All registered BSA members who are required to have YPT and have not yet taken the new course need to do so by Sept. 30th. It is available on the my.scouting.org website or can be requested for direct delivery. The new course takes approximately 2 hours to complete online. The District is currently seeking any registered members who are interested in becoming trainers for the new YPT so it can be offered locally. If you would like to become approved to teach it, please contact your District Training Chair: york.district.ptc.training@gmail.com or Council Training Chair: kanorton13@gmail.com

Pre-registration is on a first-come, first-served basis and is required in advance using the online form below.  Moviemaking Merit Badge requires a Scout to be at least 14 years old at the start of the College.  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 mbc2018@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 

Online Registration Form

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 2018 Merit Badge College!
