The 2017 National Jamboree is offering the newest merit badge, Exploration, to all Scouts who are attending.
The Exploration merit badge was released in January and will be taught at the jamboree in partnership with National Geographic at the Scott Summit Centers Stadium Stage Tent SS03.
To complete the merit badge, a Scout must understand what exploration is, list examples of explorers along with the history of exploration and plan, prepare and execute their own expedition.
Exploration is far from the only merit badge available at the jamboree. Scouts can complete requirements toward 50 merit badges across the Summit. Instructors are located in both the Scott Summit Center and the STEM Quest program area.
