Radio Merit Badge

Earn Radio Merit Badge and explore cool STEM activities

Scouts of all levels are invited to earn Radio Merit Badge. Almost all requirements of the badge will be available during the day. The package, which includes all event activities, lunch and a patch, is $20 per scout.

October 15, 2022 – 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Amateur radio clubs from the area will be cooperating to teach Radio merit badge to Scouts. During the single-day event, Scouts will learn how something that’s been around over a hundred years has changed everyone’s lives. You say you don’t listen to the radio? Sorry, that smart phone in your pocket, the WiFi router in your home, microwave ovens, GPS navigation, automobile radar and more all make use of radio technology.

We will teach you the basics. Once that’s out of the way, it will be time for some fun!

Attendees will participate in the Jamboree-on-the-Air, or JOTA, the largest Scouting event in the world. JOTA uses amateur radio to link Scouts and hams around the world, around the nation, and in your own community. And we’ll also have a “foxhunt” throughout the camp!

Special commemorative Jamboree On the Air patches will be handed out during the event.
