Signs, Signals, and Codes


Newly Released Merit Badge:

Enhancing Our Youth’s Competitive Edge

Signs, Signals, and Codes: Communication for Everyone

Are you ready for the next merit badge? Boys will discover this to be an exciting merit badge with lots of hands-on, interactive activities for learning and practicing different types of communications such as Morse code, semaphore, and American Sign Language. The badge also encourages boys to check out cryptography, trail markers, and Braille. There are a variety of different signs, signals, and codes to have fun exploring.

Signs, Signals, and Codes would be an ideal badge to introduce at summer camp and camporees. Competitions between patrols or troops would be greatly enhanced as Scouts challenge each other to send various messages back and forth to accomplish requirements. In addition, they can mark trails and send and receive silent Scout signals. There is definitely something here for everyone.

Signs, Signals, and Codes marks the 135th current merit badge.
