Merit Badge Choices and Prerequisites
Through the merit badge program, a Scout also learns career skills, develops socially, and may develop physical skills and hobbies that give a lifetime of healthful recreation. This books lists the requirements a Scout meets to earn each of the more than merit badges that are available. Scouts must be tested individually, and they must meet all the requirements. For each of these three ranks, a scout must earn a certain number of Eagle Required Merit Badges see below and a certain number of Elective Merit Badges.
There are currently Merit Badges offered in Boy Scouting. All other merit badges are called Elective merit badges.
Each scout must earn any 9 of these before they get their Eagle Rank. A scout can continue earning merit badges even after they get 21, as there is no limit to the number of merit badges they can earn. This means they only have to earn one out of each group. If they earn more than one out of each group, then the first one earned chronologically will count towards Eagle-Requireds, while the other one will count towards the elective merit badges. To see the prerequisites, notes, and resources on all Eagle Required Badges, click here.
To celebrate the centennial year in Boy Scouting, the BSA reinstated four merit badges that had been previously discontinued. These merit badges Carpentry, Pathfinding, Signaling, and Tracking can only be earned in the year These badges count as a normal elective merit badge. They have a gold border around them, making them instantly identifiable. Before taking a merit badge, scouts are encouraged to check out merit badge books.
Merit badge books are pamphlets specific to each merit badge which provides detailed information on what that merit badge is about, the requirements for that merit badge, and ways to complete the aforementioned requirements.
Our troop possesses an extensive library of merit badge books that are available to you free of charge. The library is kept in the possession of the elected troop librarian. If the merit badge book you seek is not in the inventory or the library, you can check it out at a local town library, contact another troop, or buy it at the scoutshop.
If you wish to buy merit badge books from the Scoutshop, click here. You can get blue cards at your local scoutshop or through your Unit Advancement Chair.
Or, you may use the electronic blue card, which you may fill out on the computer. Download it by clicking HERE. Merit badge days are held two to three times a year and are coordinated by the district.
For more ambitious scouts, other troops hold their own merit badge days, any of which you can go to for the appropriate price. Make note of classes that take two sessions. There are requirements for each merit badge that must be completed by you before Merit Badge Day.
Ask the counselor questions about prerequisites and any equipment, notebooks, pens or pencils, etc. Aside from Merit Badge days, Summer Camp is one of the only officially organized merit badge sessions there are. In merit badge days, you can take up to 2 merit badges, but at summer camp, one can take up to 6 or maybe even 7 merit badges providing that time allows. Summer camps are weeklong camps that are usually held in late July or August, and span over the course of seven days. This is because the teachers have 5 days to teach everything that the students need to know, and there are more facilities available.
For example, Camp Emerald Bay is famous for its aquatic program, which includes waterskiing, wakeboarding, scuba diving, snorkeling, and motorboating. If you are looking to earn a merit badge that is not usually offered at merit badge days, and you do not want to wait for summer camps, the best way to get a start on that merit badge is to call up a counselor on your own.
You can obtain a list of merit badge counselors from your scoutmaster or advancement chair. This practice is commonly availed for eagle-required merit badges like swimming, hiking, or cycling. Those merit badges are not offered at merit badge days due to their outdoor status, and you would not want to waste a class at summer camp for something you could easily do at home. Scouts in a troop often call counselors and arrange dates for them to meet.
Then, the scout will take a head count of who in their troop wishes to attend the session. This is an easy way to earn merit badges if they are uncommon. Merit Badge Links Click the link to navigate to that page. Are worksheets requried?
