May Merit Badge Spotlight: Camping & American Heritage

Camping Merit Badge Patch  American Heritage patch

The Camping merit badge was one of the original 57 merit badges issued by the Boy Scouts of America in 1911.  
Camping is one of the best-known methods of the Scouting movement. When he founded the Scouting movement in the early 1900s, Robert Baden-Powell encouraged every Scout to learn the art of living out-of-doors. He believed a young person able to take care of himself while camping would have the confidence to meet life's other challenges, too.


By earning the American Heritage Merit Badge a Scout develops a better understanding of American heritage, the ways in which the past has lead to our present nation, is key to truly knowing what it means to be an American.
