May Merit Badge Spotlight: Camping & American Heritage
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.
