Merit Badge Information

Merit Badges are a fun and rewarding part of scouting. There are more than 100 to choose from. Any Boy Scout may earn any Merit Badges at any time. However it more important for scouts under the rank of First Class to focus more on rank advancements than Merit Badges. Scouts First Class and above are required to earn them for advancement.
