Scouts planning to participate in Personal Management must register online below and contact the Merit Badge Counselor Jed Cobb via email email@example.com BEFORE February 23 in order to acquire the 90-day logging documents to be in a position to complete the Merit Badge during the Spring 2019 College. Otherwise, a Scout will only be eligible for a Partial as there will not be enough time to complete the 90-day period in April and May.
Scouts should attend all sessions in complete BSA Scout Field Uniform and Be Prepared with a notebook, pen/pencil and any Merit Badge books necessary for requirement fulfillment. Scouts also need to bring a Scoutmaster-signed and properly-completed Merit Badge Application Form (Blue Card) with them to the first session.

Notes to Parents and Scout Leaders: There has been some misunderstanding on the role of the ”Merit Badge College.” These sessions are intended to be educational for the Scouts that have registered and attended, as the word College implies. This event is not intended to be a Merit Badge sign-off conference. We encourage Scouts to contact approved Counselors for sign-offs for requirements and work completed outside the College event, as the College format is not intended for that purpose.
We look forward to having Scouts participate in the York District Spring 2019 Merit Badge College!
