Geocaching merit badges.

Recommended Posts

I asked one of reviewers (Reviewer Reven) if a scout could release a trackable instead of hiding a cache and get credit for the badge and he thought it was so. This would keep a lot of Scout caches from being abandoned.

Here's a quote from the BSA Merit Badge booklet:

  1. Do ONE of the following:

    1. If a Cache to Eagle® series exists in your council, visit
      at least three of the locations in the series. Describe the projects that each cache you visit highlights, and explain how the Cache to Eagle® program helps share our Scouting service with the public.

    2. Create a Scouting-related Travel Bug® that promotes one of the values of Scouting. “Release” your Travel Bug into a public geocache and, with your parent’s permission, monitor its progress at www.geocaching.com for 30 days. Keep a log, and share this with your counselor

      at the end of the 30-day period.

    3. Set up and hide a public geocache, following the guide- lines in the Geocaching merit badge pamphlet. Before doing so, share with your counselor a six-month maintenance plan for the geocache where you are personally responsible for the first three months. After setting up the geocache, with your parent’s permission, follow the logs online for 30 days and share them with your counselor. 

That would confirm it!
