A merit badge event lets Scouts learn about sports, crafts, science, trades, business, and future careers.
An event may focus on a single merit badge or a variety of fields that might not normally be available. Observatories, planetariums, parks, museums, ships, colleges, universities, as well as police and fire departments may offer special events available only to Scouts and only one day each year. Scouts might learn first-hand from dentists, veterinarians, doctors, lawyers, financial planners, engineers, chemists, artists, astronomers, scientists, firemen, policemen, and other experts.
Regardless of the setting or topics, the goal is to have fun as you learn new skills and gain knowledge.
