What we do in our troop is provide an introduction to the "required"
Merit Badge that corresponds to the months theme. Then, during the
course of the month, we provide additional guidance to those boys
that are interested.
If the Merit Badge/theme warrants, we also provide full instruction
(first aid as an example) and do our best to complete the badge in
5 or 6 weeks (sometimes takes longer because of presentations, as in
the case of Communications).
However, there is no Merit Badge that is totally completed during
