We have just published an updated Scouts BSA Program & Prerequisite Guide for merit badges and activities at Camps Bowman, Marriott, and Olmsted.

The only change is for Citizenship in the Nation merit badge. With the updated requirements for Citizenship in the Nation, the new prerequisites are now requirements 5 and 7 for Summer 2022. They are similar to the previous prerequisites in nature.

You can download a copy of the 2022 Program & Prerequisite Guide in the Scouts BSA Specific downloads section for your camp or on the Forms & Downloads page. For the most up to date requirements for all badges, please refer to
