Worksheet Notes

Here are examples of some of the extra materials you will need that are included in the workbooks:

Other notes:

  • Editable doc file versions of the worksheets are at
  • Webmasters: Please post links to the workbooks instead of posting the doc or pdf files as they are updated frequently.
  • A Scout is expected to meet the requirements exactly as stated – no more and no less.
  • Scouts STARTING a merit badge must use the CURRENT Boy Scout Requirements and can continue to use those requirements even if new requirements are published. A Scout may then elect to complete the full set of new requirements or the full set of old requirements. A Scout cannot pick and choose from both sets. If he chooses to use the new requirements, he can, of course, use the work he has done on any of the old requirements, if the requirement is unchanged, or only had editorial changes which don't actually change the actual requirement.

Email the worksheet developer with any comments or ideas: Craig. Webelos Activity Badge Worksheets and Cub Scout Beltloop Worksheets are also available.
