Before long (January 1, 2014) the list of Eagle required merit badges will change slightly with the addition of cooking as a required merit badge and the new sustainability merit badge as an alternative to environmental science. These changes get me thinking about the merit badge program as a whole and Eagle required badges in particular. Looking at the list of  Eagle required badges I note that  academic-style requirements (listing, defining, explaining, planning, writing) far outweigh requirements centered on actual activities and experiences – even with badges like cooking and camping. In the Scoutmaster conference for the Scout badge, I explain that Tenderfoot is learning to take care of yourself while camping, Second Class is learning to participate in your patrol, and First Class is learning to contribute to your patrol.
My son is an Eagle Scout (2009) and I remain very involved with the program at a district level and as a merit badge counselor.

Contact Information for your Community’s Emergency Management Director and a list of what this person does for 6c.
Prepare a family kit (suitcase or waterproof box) for use by your family in case an emergency evacuation is needed. Th BSA Insignia Guide presents detailed information.Merit Badge Resources, Worksheets, and Revision Dates. The BSA has announced these new merit badges: Digital Technology (2014, replacing Computers merit badge) Mining in Society (February 2014). Scouts who camp and cook in patrols regularly will complete many of the requirements in the course of their routine activities and many of the requirements correspond to rank requirements up to first class rank.

The problem is, at least to my mind, that most of these badges emphasize academic oriented methods over Scouting methods.
Find out who is your community’s emergency management director and learn what this person does to prepare, respond to, recover from, and mitigate and prevent emergency situations in your community. Here are links to Merit Badge resource pages and worksheets along with the requirement revision dates.
