Eagle Scout Requirement 3: Earn a total of 21 merit badges (required badges are listed). List the month, day, and year the merit badge was earned.


The 12 required merit badges are: Camping; Citizenship in the Community; Citizenship in the Nation; Citizenship in the World; Communications; Emergency Preparedness or Lifesaving; Environmental Science; First Aid; Cycling or Hiking or Swimming; Personal Management; Personal Fitness; Family Life.
