Merit Badges

Merit badges needed to be earned with approved merit badge counselors.  Unit leaders should make sure that only approved counselors are used by Scouts to obtain help with their merit badges.  Merit badge counselors at summer camp are approved every summer before the start of camp by Council.  Each district within the Council maintains its own list of counselors from the units within that district.  If assistance in finding a counselor is needed in the Yolano District, please contact Advancement Chair for the Yolano District, Linda Paumer

For the current list of merit badge counselors in the Yolano District, please send an email to the Advancement Chair, Linda Paumer. (linda.paumer@gmail.com).
