May Merit Badge Spotlight: Cooking & Canoeing


“ The Cooking merit badge introduces principles of cooking that can be used both at home or in the outdoors. Scouts who earn this badge will learn about food safety, nutritional guidelines, meal planning, and methods of food preparation, and will review the variety of culinary (or cooking) careers available. ”
The Cooking merit badge was one of the original 57 merit badges issued by the Boy Scouts of America in 1911.
Cooking merit badge is an option for the National Outdoor Badge for Camping.

“ For several centuries, the canoe was a primary method of travel for explorers and settlers. Today, it remains an important part of the wilderness experience and an enjoyable leisure activity that teaches communication, teamwork, and physical fitness. ”

Canoeing merit badge is an option for the National Outdoor Badge for Aquatics.
