What is the Merit Badge Program

The Merit Badge Program provides youth the opportunity to explore more than hundred fields of subject of skill and knowledge. Merit Badges are a vital part of the Scouting advancement plan. A Scout acquires the kind of self-confidence that comes only from overcoming obstacles to achieve a goal. Instructions are offered from "A" to "Z". Beware that Cub Scouts can not work on merit badges or Boy Scout requirements.

Scouts learn about the merit badge they have chosen to learn by reading the merit badge pamphlet which can be purchased from the local scout center or your troop library may allow you to check it out. After the Scout feels ready to start working on the badge he sets up an appointment with a merit badge counselor who will teach and sign off the requirements upon completion. The individual Scout is responsible for finding, making an appoint, and working with the merit badge counselor.
