Merit Badge Counselor Requirements

Parents, if you're interested in becoming a Merit Badge Counselor, this section is for you.  Merit Badge Counselors are always welcome.   You are encouraged to look through the more than 120 merit badges available in Scouting.   Choose a topic of interest or your area of expertise.   This is a great opportunity to cultivate a Scout's interest in a new area.     We welcome your participation in helping our Scouts learn. 

Note, to be a merit badge counselor, you need to be at least 18 years of age, of good character and will need to annually register with the Boy Scouts of America, through Longs Peak Council by completing the adult application.  The council will then process the application, which includes a screening.

To be a merit badge counselor, please complete the following steps:

  1. Fill out an Adult Application, available from the Scoutmaster, the Scout Store or the online adult application.  Use Merit Badge Position Code 42.
  2. All applicants for membership are required to take the Youth Protection training before registering. Be sure to return to my.scouting.org and enter your member number after you receive it for training record credit.
  3. Fill out the Longs Peak Council Merit Badge Counselor Application sheet and make a copy of it for the troop records.
  4. Turn in the adult application with the Youth Protection Training certificate and the Merit Badge Counselor application sheet to the Scoutmaster.
  5. Read through the following guides as resources:

Thank you for your service to Scouting!
