Troop 395,

It's that time to send this out again as a reminder...

Parents please show this to your son, if he doesn't have his own email. You can always have his email address added by sending it to Mr. Gerner @ gernergang@gmail.com

Below is the process for working on earning Merit Badges:


Once you decide that your interested in earning a Merit Badge (MB):


1) You need to sign out the Merit Badge Pamphlet for the MB that you want.

*In the event that the Troop doesn't have a copy of the pamphlet that you want, Please let me (Scoutmaster) know. We will get one. 


2) Next, you go to meritbadge.org and find the worksheets for the MB. 


3) You will use the MB Pamphlet to fill in your MB worksheets. 


4) Once you have completed what you can in the MB Worksheets, bring me your paperwork and I will get you a blue card. 


5) Now you are ready to attend a class (SAW, Summer Camp, Winter Camp, MB Counselor, ect...).


6) Once you have completed your merit badge. You bring me your blue card with your counselor signature and I will sign off as completed in the scoutmaster location.


7) Finally, you will have earned the merit badge.... once you show the completed blue card to our Advancement Chair (Mrs. Bassler) and she has logged it in Scoutbook. 


Please sit with me if I need to explain in person. You can earn Merit Badges on your own. Don't wait for Camp..... 

**Earn it at your own pace
