Merit Badges

Troop 229 regularly integrates the pursuit of merit badges into our weekly meetings. With more than 135 merit badges approved by the Boy Scouts of America, there is always a wealth of activities to choose from.

The Scouts who are in leadership positions select the merit badges the troop works on and help organize how we will go about completing them. Below are badges the troop is pursuing, as well as the merit badge workbooks Scouts will need to complete specific listed requirements at home.

Although we do much of the work at the meetings, it is important for Scouts to take the initiative to complete the badges. Any Scout who doesn't complete the work by the required time line with the rest of the troop will be responsible for coordinating with the merit badge counselor to finish up the requirements.
