It’s a new year and that means Scouts now have a new way to earn all 20 of the most popular merit badges – which just so happen to include all of the Eagle Scout required badges – via our new interactive digital merit pamphlets.

Since going digital last summer, the BSA has been rolling out more and more pamphlets throughout 2015 to make sure all Eagle-required merit badge pamphlets are available for 2016. Today, Scouts can earn all of their Eagle-required badges without ever picking up the traditional print and ink versions.

Scouts still need to earn a total of 21 merit badges to fulfill the Eagle Scout requirements but all of the badges you must earn to reach the rank are available digitally.

All available interactive digital merit badge pamphlets include: Cooking, First Aid, Robotics, Animation, Communications, Family Life, Digital Technology, Personal Fitness, Hiking, Cycling, Swimming, Camping, Citizenship in the Nation, Personal Management, Citizenship in the World, Emergency Preparedness, Lifesaving, Citizenship in the Community (new!), Environmental Science (new!), and Sustainability (new!).
Head to to help your Scouts earn Scouting’s highest rank! Want to learn more about what makes these digital versions so cool? Check out 9 Things to Know About Interactive Digital Merit Badge Pamphlets.
