Earning a Merit Badge

Attention Scouts and Parents,

Here is a quick, simple visual describing the steps to earning a Merit Badge (MB). Please review this with your scout and make sure you understand the process. It is important to note that the MB Counselor is NOT to be training/teaching the scout about the MB. Rather, the MB Counselor serves to verify that the scout has learned what is needed (either by reading the MB pamphlet or seeking help from others, or perhaps even the MB counselor if the scout takes the initiative to ask the MB counselor for assistance) in order to sign off on the requirements. It is the responsibility of the scout read the MB Pamphlet (click here), complete the MB Worksheet (click here), and demonstrate to the MB Counselor their understanding of the merit badge material and requirements.

Also, please note that it is the scout's responsibility to hold onto their own blue cards for their MBs.
