    For the merit badges requiring pre-requisites, how do we find out what they are?

  • Mr. J. Putnik

    The Leaders Guide for Gulf Ridge Council, Camp Flaming Arrow Aquacademy does not list the prerequisites. Try printing the merit badge worksheet from Usually, the prerequisites are something along the lines of keep track of… for 5 days or do this for 30 days…. Best practice is to get the book and complete the entire worksheet in order to be prepared for class.
