With 126 merit badges out there (including four for 2010 only), Scouting offers something for every boy in your troop.
But when a Scout comes up to you with dreams of Drafting or visions of Veterinary Medicine, how would you respond?
Don't worry; there's help available. Just visit scouting.org's merit badge page and click on the badge in question. Not only will you be shown the latest requirements for the badge, you'll also see a list of helpful resources for learning more about the topic.
For a good example, check out the Entrepreneurship merit badge site. You'll see relevant books (such as How to Be a Teenage Millionaire) and Web sites like bizworld.org, which teaches kids lessons in business.
Bookmark the site today, so the next time a Scout wants to know everything he can about Pulp and Paper, you'll be ready.
