Scouts working on the Wilderness Survival merit badge learn to anticipate and avoid the hazards involved in backcountry adventures. They put together a first aid kit and build a natural shelter. They also learn how to treat water, be aware of weather conditions, and light a fire without matches.

Please see the attachments on the registration page for instructions about prework.

While working on the requirements for the Law merit badge, Scouts learn about the history of law and the difference between civil law and criminal law. They investigate the different areas of law and find out about careers which are related to legal matters.

The pre-reqs for Citizenship in the World will be 3, 4b, and 7.

Scouts working on the Sustainability merit badge learn to conserve energy at home and think about how their food, housing, and consumption choices impact society at large. They make a plan to use the Earth’s resources more wisely. They also learn how the Scout Law and the Scout Oath promote more sustainable communities.

Pre-work

Requirement 1. Before starting work on any other requirements for this merit badge, write in your own words the meaning of sustainability. Explain how you think conservation and stewardship of our natural resources relate to sustainability. Have a family meeting, and ask family members to write down what they think sustainability means. Be sure to take notes. You will need this information again for requirement 5.

 

Requirement 2: complete part a) for each focus area.  These will take the most time to complete so try and do them before we meet.   Please use an electronic merit badge worksheet so that it is easy to share your work with me.   One example for this badge is this one.  http://www.usscouts.org/mb/worksheets/old/Sustainability-13.pdf
