Check your Unit's Pin

There have been some changes to BeAScout.org that caused your "Unit Pin" to possibly appear in a location where your unit does not meet.
If your Charter Org is not the same location as your meeting place your Unit Pin may appear at the address of your Charter Org. 

If this is the case you should contact OCBSA Data Manager Council Registrar to have the address changed in the Council Record.

Merit Badge Counselor Training

Posted on May 17 2018 - 3:21pm

As you may be aware our Council has mandated that our MB Counselors become trained. We know the importance of having a trained MB Counselor working with our Scouts.

 There are two ways to become trained:

  1. Log into my.scouting.org with your user ID and password and select the MB Counselor training modules. These modules can take 1-2 hours to complete, and all modules are required. Once complete send your certificate of completion to meritbadges@saddlebackdistrict.org to be recorded.
  2. Merit Badge Counselor Orientation Training will be offered as an in-person training. All attendees will be recorded with council as trained at time of completion.

Training will be offered.
