Boy Scouts California camping merit Badge Answers
Not all merit badge requirements are created equal.
Each merit badge has at least one doozy — a sufficiently sized hurdle standing between a Scout and his embroidered circle of pride.
I went through every merit badge requirement for every merit badge to pick out the most difficult one for each. There are 136 currently available merit badges, meaning I found 136 supremely difficult tasks that introduce Scouts to a variety of skills, hobbies and careers.
Two notes before we get started:
- Some of these are options within a larger requirement, meaning Scouts unable or unwilling to complete the task listed below might have another way to earn the merit badge.
- Opinions are bound to differ here. If you disagree on the toughest requirement for a certain merit badge, sound off in the comments section below.
