Welcome to Phi Chapter (Alpha Phi Omega crest)

13th Annual Merit Badge Day at SUNY-ESF

Merit Badge List

Bolded merit badges are Eagle required merit badges. Changes noted in red.

Preparation list is a list of suggestions; it is highly recommended that attending scouts review the requirements. If it doesn't look like it can be done in a basic classroom setting, it probably will not be able to be done at Merit Badge Day. Ability to complete the merit badges is heavily dependent on preparation of attending scouts and pace of the instructor.
