York District Spring 2019 Merit Badge College

York District Spring 2019 Merit Badge College

Hosted by the York District Advancement Committee at Sanford Junior High School (Sanford, ME) on the following Thursday evenings:

April 11, April 25, May 9, and May 23.
Session 1 runs from 6:00pm to 7:15pm
Session 2 runs from 7:15pm to 8:30pm.

Offerings include: Architecture, Chess, Citizenship in the Community, Emergency Preparedness, Energy, Engineering, Environmental Science, First Aid, Personal Management, and Signs, Signals, and Codes.
Reading and Scholarship Merit Badges will also be offered by appointment only.

Pre-registration is on a first-come, first-served basis and is required in advance using the online form below.  Some Merit Badge sessions are subject to cancellation at any time.  There is no cost to attend this Merit Badge College.  Questions may be sent via email to

Scouts planning to participate in Personal Management must register online below and contact the Merit Badge Counselor Jed Cobb via email 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.  Scouts are expected to attend every session of the college.

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!
