Merit Badge Days
The Pikes Peak Council is proud to announce Merit Badge Days for 2017!
Merit Badge Days were created to provide additional merit badge opportunities outside of your troop and Summer Camp experiences to earn additional and sometimes hard to get merit badges by qualified counselors passionate about the subjects they are teaching. Merit Badges are a cornerstone of the Scouting program providing scouts exposure to subjects that they may not otherwise get in schools or other organizations. The program promotes learning and exposes scouts to potential career paths or areas of study.
The Pikes Peak Council advancement committee is looking for Merit Badge Counselors to help teach on Merit Badge Days. Please look at our Schedule of offered Merit Badges for 2017 and let us know if you can help out. This program has benefited over 900 scouts each year and we are looking to provide even more opportunities for them.
Please contact Jake Webb if you are interested.
