Boy Scout Store News
The Boy Scout Law is steeped in tradition, and is a prominent point in every scouting group. Knowing the scout law and abiding its principles has led many young men to lead productive and fulfilled lives. The Boy Scout Store is determined to help Scouts keep the Boy Scout Law and do so with dignity.
The National Scout Jamboree is a huge gathering of the Boy Scouts of America from across the country held every four years over a 10-day time period in the summer, and it’s a wonderful opportunity to build friendships and strengthen brotherhood among Scouts. The word jamboree means “a large celebration or party, typically a boisterous one,” so it’s a perfect fit to describe this gathering of Boy Scouts!
Merit badges have been an important part of Scouting since the beginning of the Boy Scout program in 1907, and there are currently over 130 merit badges—though Scouts don’t have to get all of them. Some of the required, most popular and most difficult BSA Merit Badges to attain include: the Personal Fitness Merit Badge, the Personal Management Merit Badge, the Camping Merit Badge, and the Family Life Merit Badge.
