Winter Camp Merit Badge Counselors & Staff
WINTER CAMP MERIT BADGE COUNSELOR AND STAFF REGISTRATION
Thank you for being a part of our annual Winter Camp Program. Winter Camp is completely volunteer driven with over 100 volunteers both merit badge counselors and camp staff that support the over 500 Scouts and adult leaders that will attend Hood Scout Reservation this November.
MERIT BADGE COUNSELORS
This year Merit Badge Counselors will be able to select what days and how big their merit badge sessions will be. Currently, we will limit the session size to 20 Scouts. Merit badges are taught in one day. There are two blocks, a morning block (9:00 AM - 11:50 AM) and an afternoon block (2:00 PM - 4:50 PM). As the merit badge counselor, you can build in breaks and other program elements during that time frame. Once you register as a Winter Camp Merit Badge Counselor will send you additional information as we get closer to camp.
