Troop 269 in Aurora is again sponsoring the annual Merit Badge Challenge where Scouts can earn up to three merit badges in a classroom setting. Required merit badges are the focus of the Challenge and include First Aid, the Citizenship badges, Personal Management, and Family Life.
The Challenge will be held at St. Joseph's School in Mantua over three Saturdays: 5 December 2015, 30 January 2016, and 12 March 2016. Each day starts at 9:00 AM and finishes by 2:00 PM and is divided into three 80-minute classes with a lunch break. Lunch is included in the $25 registration fee.
Scouts interested in participating should go to Troop 269's Web site for more details and to register for the Challenge.
Adults interested in being a merit badge counselor at the Challenge should contact Lesley Mitchell (<LesleyMitch@Gmail.com>, 330 554-2465).
