Boy Scouting is for parents as well as boys. Merit Badges need not be solely earned at summer camps and special sessions.  They may be earned throughout the year with the help of talented volunteers like you!

Troop 42 is looking for troop parents who are willing to help out with their abilities and skills as one of our registered Merit Badge Counselors.
