Merit Badges

There are 119 merit badges available to the youth of the Boy Scouting program. No matter what your interest is, the merit badge program has something to offer you. Each merit badge has a set of requirements that must be completed and then approved by a merit badge counselor.

The Scout Shop has a full supply of each and every merit badge and book. To find a merit badge counselor, please call the Service Center at 708-354-1111 or review the Council Merit Badge Counselor Listing.
