These worksheets are used by Summer Camps, Merit Badge Events, and individual Scouts. See Merit Badges for more details on earning a Merit Badge.

  • Workbooks are updated more often than the requirements as we add new links, diagrams, charts, etc. That is the Workbook update date.
  • For answers to many common questions see the Merit Badge FAQ and Merit Badge Policies.
  • Right-click on a workbook name to Save As... or Print without viewing the workbook on screen.
  • These workbooks files are up to ten times smaller than the old worksheets and should load quickly.
