Personal Fitness Merit Badge - Message from Justin Howard

Posted on Mar 14 2019 - 9:36pm
I am happy to be serving as the merit badge counselor for the Personal Fitness merit badge this year.  This eagle required merit badge will require some sustained work over a 12 week period.  We will have an introductory session on Tuesday March 19 at 6:30pm at the JJ Pearce track (located at the corner of Senior Way and Mimosa).  We will then meet for workouts and workbook sessions every Sunday at 2:00pm at the JJ Pearce track.  The Sunday sessions will go from Sunday March 24 (may adjust this one due to Camporee) to Sunday June 9.  All sessions will last around 45 minutes.
