The adult leadership of the Troop focuses a lot of energy to make sure that there are abundant opportunities for boys to earn both required and optional merit badges.
Troop 20 teaches most Eagle-required merit badges in a “class” format every year or every other year. Scheduling “classes” makes the work easier for adult volunteers, and boys can help each other through coursework in a team environment.
Classes are announced in meetings and by e-mail.
Following is a list of Troop 20’s merit badge counselors. The list below is updated and maintained by the Troop’s merit badge chair as time permits. BSA’s Northeast Illinois Council maintains an up-to-date list of merit badge counselors council-wide. (You may find Troop 20 personnel that are on one list but not another. If there is a conflict, the council’s list should be considered definitive). This link contains NEIC’s information.
