Merit Badge Counselors Needed for the 2017 Merit Badge College
The Muskingum Valley Council of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is pleased to announce planning is under way for the 2017 Merit Badge College. The event will take place at:
Tri-Valley Middle School
1360 Main Street
Dresden, OH 43821
It will be held on the following Saturdays in 2017 from 8:30 AM to Noon:
- Saturday, February 4, 2017
- Saturday, March 11, 2017
- Saturday, May 13, 2017
The council is seeking Merit Badge Counselors (current or new) to assist as volunteers with the event. The theme of the event is “On Track to Eagle” and we hope to offer as many of the Eagle Required Merit Badges as the schedule and time will allow. However, counselors for non-Eagle Required Merit Badges are still encouraged and welcome to volunteer to help with the program’s diversity of offerings.

Since the first National Scout Jamboree was held in the summer of 1937 on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., the jamboree has become Scouting’s flagship event. In the summer of 2013, the Summit Bechtel Family Reserve welcomed Scouts to a whole new jamboree experience with world-class facilities and a focus on outdoor action sports. In 2017, SBR and the jamboree will be even better.
