Next Event Planned for March 18-19, 2023!

Limestone Community School
93 High Street, Limestone, Maine 04750

We're excited to announce that the North Star District will be hosting a Merit Badge Academy on March 18-19, 2023! 

 

We're bringing back the original plans of a 2 day event with an overnight indoor "campout" in the gym. The outdoor event in 2021 and 1-day event in 2022 were both very successful and now we're ready to move forward with a full-scale event. Troops from outside of Aroostook County are also invited to attend.

 

The most important thing now is to confirm Merit Badge Counselors. If you are interested in volunteering to lead a Merit Badge class, please email us at troop193limestone@gmail.com as soon as possible. The only one I have confirmed so far is Snow Sports but we're completely open to accept all others, including Swimming. PLEASE help out at this awesome event so we can provide the Scouts with an opportunity to earn more merit badges and have a weekend of fun with a purpose!

Stay tuned for more details soon
