What’s new in 2022?

As we do every year, we have updated our program schedule. Some badges have been rotated out and some badges have been rotated in. With some familiar badges – like Bird Study – we also have some entirely new badges – like Moviemaking.

There is a big change for Shooting Sports class – Archery, Rifle Shooting, and Shotgun Shooting. Rather than 2 consecutive hours in either the morning or the afternoon, now the Merit Badges have a Part 1 and a Part 2 – an hour long morning session plus an hour long afternoon session. There are still two sections – A and B – but now both have components in the morning and the afternoon. Make sure you plan your schedule accordingly!

Meanwhile, Eagle’s Eyrie’s schedule features Eagle required badges in the morning and a mix of different humanities badges in the afternoon. Adding to that is Archaeology, which is moving up the trail from Ecology to become part of Eagle’s Eyrie’s offerings.

The featured area for the 2022 season is The Guild, which is expanding its offerings to include a number of new skills and trades in addition to the popular favorites like Cooking, Welding, Metalwork, and Woodwork.
