Earning Merit Badges

You can learn about sports, crafts, science, trades, business, and future careers as you earn merit badges. There are more than 135 merit badges.

Pick a Subject. Talk to a Troop leader about your interests. Read the requirements of the merit badges you think might interest you, and pick one to earn. The Troop leader will give you the name of a person from a list of counselors. These individuals have special knowledge in their merit badge subjects and are interested in helping you.

Learn more about Merit Badges on the Boy Scouts of America website.
