Merit Badges

Location: Maine, Camp Roosevelt
Dates: 7/1 - 7/5
Of course there were many merit badges offered at camp. Many of our scouts worked on the archery merit badge.  Four scouts took the badge and each of them fulfilled all requirements by the end of the week.  Some of our scouts took other badges at the shooting range like riffle shooting.

Troop 14 Scouts also took the physical fitness and camping merit badges, both required for eagle.  Perhaps the toughest merit badge offered was wilderness survival.  Grant was the only scout in our troop to earn this merit badge with the most difficult requirement of camping outside without any tent or equipment. During this merit badge Grant rescued a scout and brought him back to camp after having him checked at the health lodge.

Other merit badges our scouts worked on were scout craft, astronomy, climbing and fishing. These merit badges aren't just the path to eagle but were a blast for the scouts who worked on them.
