Summer is around the corner, which means scout summer camp is almost here! Scout summer camp is what many Scouts enjoy the most. It is a camp program that provides a lot of opportunities for Scouts to earn merit patches (badges) or pins from their Scoutmaster. |
What type of patches or pins is excellent for uniforms?
As I mentioned above, a Scoutmaster is allowed the opportunity to reward his Scouts for accomplishing difficult tasks or for learning a new skill. There are a couple of ways a Scoutmaster can reward his Scouts: A merit patch or a pin. A merit patch or pin, both showcase the skills learned at camp. Some of those skills include archery, kayaking, space exploration, geocaching, pottery, fishing, wilderness survival, forestry, fire safety, exploration, boat sailing, and so much more depending on the location of your camp and what's available to explore and learn.
Where can Scoutmasters get custom patches and pins?
Because camping offers numerous opportunities for Scouts to earn merit patches and pins, a Scoutmaster will need to order custom BSA patches and pins for the certain tasks and skills that his Scouts will learn. Those custom patches and pins are available with a reputable company who can take your ideas and make them into amazing designs.
What is a merit patch and where do you put them?
A merit patch is custom made and embroidered on the highest quality of cotton and threads. They are washable, durable, and fade-proof.

In order to achieve the highest level of a Scout, an Eagle, you must earn 21 merit patches including 13 from a specific list acquired directly from the Boy Scouts of America.
