Merit Badge

There are around 135 Merit Badges that a scout can earn while learning new skills, concepts and behaviors.  Things learned may shape future interests and affect career choices, fields of study, or areas of service.

To earn each Merit Badge, a scout must complete the list of requirements with the guidance of a Merit Badge Counselor.  Once all requirements are met, they will be signed off by the Merit Badge Counselor.  Completed blue cards should be turned in to the scribes.

Merit Badge sessions are offered at Summer Camps, Merit Badge Fairs, and many other locations around Houston.
