Merit Badge Mentors Wanted

We are looking for adults in your unit that are interested in becoming a mentor for our merit badge a camp. We want to engage experience volunteers that have an avocation or vocation in the merit badges that we offer. Being a mentor would involve developing a merit badge syllabus, and attending staff training week for one day to train and test our staff for their particular badge (either June 18th or 19th).

There is a meeting for all interested on March 19th at 7:00 PM. It will be held at the Saint Paul Scout Office. We will be discussing the role of the merit badge mentor and distributing materials.
Summer Camp Management System (SCMS)

Starting next week you will be able to enter your Scouts into your troop's roster through the SCMS system. After entering them into your roster you will be able to request merit badges for them. Merit badge requests will sit in a pending status until June 1st. On June 1st all requests will be approved or denied. Requests for merit badges that aren't limited space will all be approved and accepted on June 1st. Limited space merit badges will be sorted to give older Scouts priority. Requests made on or after June 1st will sit in a pending status until the Friday one week before you arrive to camp. After that no requests will be accepted.
