Merit Badge Prerequisites

The merit badge program at RSR is specifically designed to reflect the outdoor experience of camp.  As a result, nearly all merit badges offered may be completed entirely at camp.  In some cases, however, a requirement may be more easily or necessarily completed at home.  In such cases the Scout is asked to bring evidence of completion for review by his merit badge counselor. 


The 2017 Merit Badge Prerequisites list may be found here.
