Kayaking Merit Badge and Kayaking BSA

The requirements for the new Kayaking merit badge page are now available on .The page also contains some information from the pamphlet specifically aimed at counselors, and a link to the requirements for the Kayaking BSA award patch at Scouts can work on booth simultaneously, but earneing one does NOT automatically qualify the Scout for the other, as the requirements overlap, but are not identical.

The Kayaking MB Workbook is also available on our site at  or and on at

The workbook contains the requirements for BOTH the Kayaking Merit Badge and the Kayaking BSA award (patch), with cross references identifying which requirements in the merit badge are comparable to those for the award patch, and vice-versa. So Scouts can easily check off the requirements for both, then do those requirements which are unique to each, and thus earn both. The merit badge, of course can be worn on the uniform/merit badge sash, and the award patch on the Scout's swimsuit - NOT on the uniform.

The workbook, like all the aquatics workbooks also includes a copy of the Safe Swim Defense guidelines, and like all the boating belated workbooks, the Safety Afloat guidelines.
