Merit Badges & Workbooks Conducive to Working on @ Home
For Boys & Girls 11 years old and up. Registered Scouts BSA members must have Unit approval and a Merit Badge Counselor to work on Merit Badges, contact your Unit leader.
||Young people can learn at meaningful levels about many topics by working on Merit Badges. Below is a list of Merit Badges that you can work on at home. If you are a Registered Scouts BSA Member, work with your Unit Leadership to identify a registered Merit Badge Counselor so that you can officially earn the Merit Badge for your Scout Advancement. If you are not a registered member, fell free to work on an at home Merit Badge, and have your Parent or Guardian sign off on the Certificate of Achievement when you are done. Remember: Don’t just complete the workbook…if it says Demonstrate, or Show, you must actually do the task.
Please check the Other Resources section of this website frequently to sign up for Virtual Merit Badge Classes, and other @ Home Opportunities.
A LISTING OF ALL MERIT BADGES CAN BE FOUND HERE.
Remember: For members to officially get credit for Merit Badge work, they must work through their units and an approved Merit Badge Counselor.
