Becoming a merit badge counselor is an excellent opportunity to counsel scouts in Chippewa District in regards to your skills, knowledge and passion in specific areas. BSA offers more than 100 merit badges that scouts can earn and one of those topics may become a career for the scout you counsel.
Chippewa District is hosting a Merit Badge Counselor Training prior to our October Roundtable on October 12. The location is United Methodist Church of Utica located at 8650 Canal Road.
The training begins promptly as 6 PM and in order to complete the training prior to the start of roundtable everyone needs to arrive a few minutes early. All paperwork will be provided except a copy of your current YPT, which you must bring.
For questions regarding the merit badge training please contact Pete Townsend at email@example.com
BSA Membership fees will be raised to $33 per year beginning on December 1, 2017. The increase applies to both scouts and adult leaders and is for the year 2018. Therefore, when you recharter your unit this fall you need to pay $33 plus $1 insurance for every scout and adult leader.
However, since the increase is for the year 2018 and is not effective until December 1, we will continue to use the current fee of $25/year plus $1 insurance for any scouts or leaders that join in September, October or November. 2017. However, the amount you pay for the new scout/leader is pro-rated because the year ends December 31.
Example: If a scout or adult leader joins in September–turn in a payment of $8 plus $1 insurance (total = $9) with the application to cover them until the end of 2017. When you add them to your charter for 2018, you will pay $33 and $1 insurance for them to cover next year regardless if they joined in September, October or November.
The pro-rated fee for scouts joining in October is $6 and $1 insurance. For November, it is $4 and $1 insurance.
DO NOT HOLD ONTO NEW SCOUT APPLICATIONS JUST BECAUSE WE ARE RECHARTERING OVER THE NEXT 3 MONTHS. TURN ALL NEW APPLICATIONS AND PRO-RATED FEES AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
