Merit Badge Counselor
* As of October 1, 2019 the Merit Badge Counselor List is only available on Scoutbook. See your Scoutmaster for a counselor's name and the required Blue Card. *
The purpose of this list is to assist Scoutmasters, Venturing Crew Advisors and their Assistants in assigning Merit Badge Counselors to Scouts in their respective units. Scouts need to visit with their unit leader and get a signed Merit Badge Card commonly called ‘Blue Cards’ before making contact with a Merit Badge Counselor.
