we're doing a Big merit badge midway in the early spring and I want to
lay some ground rules when we have the staff meeting. At some previous
ones it seemed that some counselors were giving them away by the end
of the day, or forsaking some requirements based on misinformation.
We've got close to 50 counselors lined up and expect upwards of 500
kids, I want to ensure every counselor understands their role and
obligation to the boys.
>Here are the current pamphlets from National on MB Counseling:
Merit Badge Counseling #34520
Guide for Merit Badge Counselors #34532A
Worksheet for Building MB Counselor List #4439
Am not certain which of the first two might have training info.

I have in front of me a BSA document (#34542, 2000 printing) called "Merit
Badge Counselor Orientation, Supplemental Adult Leader Training." It should
be available through your local council or national supply.
