Annual SAME / Boy Scout Engineering Merit Badge Event - 3 October
The Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) Pikes Peak
Post will be hosting its 7th annual event for Boy Scouts to obtain
their engineering merit badge on 10/03/15 at the US Air Force
Academy in the cadet area. Counseling and activities will be available
to help the scouts fulfill their merit badge requirements. This
event has been a tremendous success over the years. So much so
that last year it sold out in just 3 days over a holiday weekend.
Counselor Volunteer Request
we need your help to make this year's event successful. We need
counselors for the afternoon. Will you consider being a counselor?
Remember, boys find their self-worth not in money but in adults
spending time with them. You will find great satisfaction knowing
that you helped these boys reinforce their self-worth, increase
knowledge and build character with so little of your time and
effort. We need your help as an engineer merit badge counselor.
All it takes is an afternoon from approximately 2 to 5 pm on 3
October at the U.S. Air Force Academy. (We ask that all merit
badge counselors have a BS in an engineering field and 5 years'
experience in engineering.)
