Merit Badge List Renewal for All Counselors

Posted on Jan 31 2024 - 8:23pm

Attention all Merit Badge Counselors: 

 

Theo Geukens, the Canyons District Merit Badge Counselor Coordinator, has asked that everyone renew their merit badge certification and provide your updated YPT certificate, even if you have done it recently. Please see his email below:

It is time to renew the Merit Badge (MB) Counselor list for Canyons District. If you are a current Merit Badge Counselor and you want to renew for the next few years. Attached to this email is a “MERIT BADGE COUNSELOR INFORMATION” form that you can fill out, sign, and send back to me by email, in person or mail to me. You do not need to fill out a new Adult Application. Once reviewed, you will receive by email a letter from me with the approved Merit Badges. If you are a MB counselor now and are not registered with a unit or district member-at-large, then you will need to send me a new Adult Application (attached) filled out with position code #42 and pay a $25 fee in addition. The idea is for you to change MB’s and to clear out counselors that are no longer active. You will remain an active MB Counselor until 2/29/24 and then you will be added to the new list. If I do not receive a new Merit Badge Counselor Information form by 2/29/24 then you will be dropped and will need to fill out a new adult application as well as the information form. Remember some MB’s require special training, and this will be double checked before being approved. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. 

YIS, 

Theo Geukens

Eagle Project Announcement

Posted on Jan 31 2024 - 8:12pm
Hello Troop Families,
 
I've been working hard on my Eagle Project for a while now, and I'm beginning fundraising to purchase materials and supplies. I would be grateful if you could support my project by contributing to my GoFundMe. For my project, I'll be constructing a Little Free Library in Santiago Oaks Regional Park. In addition to monetary donations, I'm also looking to work with 2 or 3 younger scouts to help organize a book drive to stock the libraries. This is a great opportunity for younger scouts to learn more about organizing volunteer opportunities and gain volunteer hours. If you're interested, please find me at a troop meeting, or email me (CC your parents!) and I'll get back to you soon. Thank you for your time and generosity.

Best regards,
 
Andrew H
