Merit Badges are unique rewards. Each one teaches a separate skill, and there are currently over 100 different merit badges. To get to Eagle a scout must first complete merit badges. Some of them must be specific merit badges with fundamental scouting values such as camping or first aid. These are eagle required. The scout can also choose from any merit badge to get the remaining merit badges. Adults in the troop can also get involved by volunteering to teach a merit badge.
