I’ve had several requests lately for a newer version of the merit badge check off list, updated with the newest badges. So I’ve redone the list as a Google spreadsheet. This will make it easier to keep updated.
Search and Rescue Merit Badge
A reader asks about how old a Scout should be to work on a merit badge. The Guide to Advancement provides some answers.
BSA has just released the Search and Rescue merit badge requirements. This new merit badge teaches Boy Scouts what is involved in search and rescue missions, so they will be prepared to help out if the need arises in their area.
You can learn about sports, crafts, science, trades, business, and future careers as you earn merit badges. There are more than 100 merit badges.
