NEED YOUTH PROTECTION TRAINING?
If you have not taken the NEW Youth Protection Training (required for all adult leaders and merit badge counselors - effective October 1, 2018) we have an opportunity for you.  During the registration process for Merit Badge Counselor Training, you will be asked if you would need Youth Protection Training.  Youth Protection Training will precede the Merit Badge Counselor Training Class by two hours, so those signing up for Youth Protection Training as well will need to plan on attending starting at 2:30 pm.  The Youth Protection Training will take approximately 2 hours (2:30 pm to 4:30 pm).

AN ADDED OPTIONAL BONUS

Merit Badge Counselor Training attendees are eligible for joining our Honor Weekend Scouts for dinner at 7:00 pm. This is a semi formal dinner, if not wearing a Scouting Uniform, we would ask gentlemen to bring a jacket and tie and ladies business casual attire to change into for dinner. There is an additional cost for this, but this 4-course meal is definitely worth it.  You can easily sign up for the dinner option if you would like but is not required - limited seating is available..
