For more information, contact Mrs. Terry Seymour at 845-656-7931 or Kristi 845-418-8208

Personal Study Sessions (30 minute time blocks) will be scheduled for the badges indicated.  These badges need all of the requirements to be completed before the Scout meets with the counselor.  There is no need to schedule a 3-hour session to explain work that has already been done.  Scouts requesting these badges MUST have everything ready to show the counselor in an organized manner.  The schedule is tight and does allow for “discussions”, but does not allow for “teaching”, or an unprepared Scout!

There are no full day sessions at our seminar. Some badges are offered in both a morning and afternoon session. Please indicate on the registration form if you would prefer morning or afternoon. Every effort will be made to give you your first choice in badges.

The only badge that has limits is E-Prep (limit of 12).

In case of inclement weather, every effort will be made to contact the scouts via email or phone as to the status of the seminar. Scouts are also encouraged to check our website @ www.bsa37.org for the most up to date status if inclement weather is called for. If the weather does cause the cancellation of the seminar on February 18th, it would be impossible to coordinate everyone for another date, for this reason, every effort will be made to have the seminar on February 18th.

You may register one of the following ways:

  1. Print the registration form, fill it out and mail it in (Downloadable Prerequisites available here)
