Boy Scout Merit Badge Worksheets include maps, charts, links, checklists,
Revision Dates, and links related Merit Badges and Scout Awards.
These worksheets are used by Summer Camps, Merit Badge Events, and individual Scouts.
Other resources include the Online Merit Badge Application, Popularity, FAQ, and Policies.

Worksheets are also available for Cub Scout Adventures, Webelos & Arrow of Light Adventure Pins and Nova & Supernova Awards.

Merit Badge Resources, Worksheets, and Revision Dates

Here are links to Merit Badge resource pages and worksheets along with the requirement revision dates. Make sure the Merit Badge pamphlet (book) you are using is not out of date (older than the revision date). Rank workbooks are also listed.

Merit Badge Workbooks (worksheets) are not required but are tools that can help Scouts organize notes, listen actively, and document their work. These optional worksheets are used by Summer Camps, Merit Badge Events, and individual Scouts. See Merit Badges for more details on earning a Merit Badge. The use of the worksheets can NOT be required, and they should be used as an AID by the Scouts. Workbooks allow Merit Badge Counselors to offer group instruction but still "...test the Scout individually. If a requirement uses terms like "Show", "Demonstrate", "Explain", or similar terms, he must do exactly that" BSA, not just write out an answer on the worksheet.

Right click on the PDF or DOCX link next to the merit badge or rank name to save or print the corresponding workbook. Click on a merit badge or rank name to go that page here in the wiki. "You should read the merit badge pamphlet on the subject." BSA Merit badge pamphlets (books) are available at your local Scout Shop or online at
