Merit Badge Resources, Worksheets, and Revision Dates

Here are links to Merit Badge resource pages and worksheets along with the requriement Revision Dates. Make sure the Merit Badge book you are using is not out of date (older than the revision date).

Optional workbooks (worksheets) can help Scouts organize notes, listen actively, and document their work. Workbooks allow Merit Badge Counselors to offer group instruction but still "...test the Scout individually."BSA Click a merit badge below for the current requirements. "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

Workbooks Notes

Here are examples of some of the extra materials you will need that are included in the workbooks:

Other notes
Any Boy Scout may earn any merit badge at any time.
Boy Scout Requirements p. 22
  • A Scout is expected to meet the requirements exactly as stated – no more and no less.
  • Scouts STARTING a merit badge must use the CURRENT Boy Scout Requirements and can continue to use those requirements even if new requirements are published. A Scout may then elect to complete the full set of new requirements or the full set of old requirements. A Scout cannot pick and choose from both sets. If he chooses to use the new requirements, he can, of course, use the work he has done on any of the old requirements, if the requirement is unchanged, or only had editorial changes which don't actually change the actual requirement.

Email the worksheet developer with any comments or ideas: Craig. Webelos Activity Badge Worksheets and Cub Scout Beltloop Worksheets are also available.
