  • New Merit Badges for 2009 & 2010
  • August 14, 2009 – What do you think of these new merit badges? Robotics and SCUBA will be the cool ones to the kids. Scouting Heritage will be a favorite of the “old farts”.

  1. Dan - Scouting News Says:

    I’m not sure if Scuba actually needed a merit badge, its an activity with its own education / certification progam. I think the Scuba Award is enough to introduce kids to the activity.

    Robotics, while over my head, is gaining quite the following in High Schools.

    Scouting Heritage is kind of “lame” for the kids these days. Plus it seems an odd merit badge. Very narrow focused and doesn’t introduce a new hobby or activity. Could have very well been an award earned.
