Cooking now a required Eagle Scout Merit Badge

Effective January 1, 2014, scouts earning their Eagle Rank will have to earn the Cooking Merit Badge. This does not change the total number of badges required, that remains

at 21. But it increases the total white, or Eagle required merit badges from 12 to 13. This does impact our scouts, most Eagle candidates in Troop 9 have 30+ merit badges when the apply to advance to Eagle, but no scouts in Troop 9 have worked on or earned the Cooking Merit Badge in about 5 years. The leadership will work on offering this merit badge again over several camping trips starting this fall.
