Old Colony District - Scout College 2019

Upper Pittsgrove Twp. School

Saturday, February 9 & February 23, 2019

8:30 AM-3:00 PM

The Old Colony District, under the Garden State Boy Scout Council, is proudly offering the annual Scout College program to our scouts and leaders. Several new merit badges are being introduced this year which scouts can pick from as well as the old favorites. Not all programs will earn merit badges, for example Den Chief Training, but all programs will provide information to enhance the scouting experience in both scouts and adults. We suggest all units who have Life scouts to encourage their scouts to take the Eagle Packet Planning to help them on their journey of earning the Eagle rank as they begin to plan their Eagle Project. For the adults, we will be offering Life to Eagle Training for Leaders, Eagle Mentors, Committee Chair, Advancement Chairs etc. to give you a better understanding of the entire process so you will be more prepared to help and guide the scouts along the way.

These classes are very informational to both scouts and leaders, but they tend to fill up quickly. Please take the time to read about the requirements, which period the classes will be offered and the registration information.
