Merit Badges

The Camp Geiger programs offer   a wide variety of outdoor related merit badges, along with several special interest and Eagle required merit badge activities. The mix of activities creates a full program for the newest Tenderfoot to the seasoned Scout.

Scouts who have recently crossed from Webelos or are new to scouting are provided a special program, First Class Trail, designed to teach basic scouting skills. Through this program the Scout will be exposed to many of the requirements of Tenderfoot through First Class ranks. However, participation does not ensure knowledge. The decision that a scout has met a requirement is the responsibility of his Troop's leadership.

This year’s program promises to be fun and exciting. All 42 merit badges have been carefully selected to fit the outdoor setting of Camp Geiger, or to meet the needs of the Scouts and units attending Camp Geiger. Lesson plans and activities reflect the requirements from the 2015 edition of the BSA merit badge requirements. A one page activity schedule is available in the forms and resources section.
