12 Weeks of Summer … Merit Badges
By Jeffrey Bishop
School’s out for the summer! Between sleeping in, watching a younger sibling, pool time, mowing lawns and endless hours of video games, there’s still plenty of time to knock out a merit badge or two, as a Scout, a Patrol or a Troop. Tops for summer start-to-finish are those Eagle-required badges that require 12 weeks of something — tracking money, chores or fitness.
To help, we’ve crafted some tools to help with the onerous recordkeeping tasks associated with two merit badges: Personal Fitness and Personal Management. The forms are both clean and concise, to help Scouts meet the requirements and to help merit badge counselors give credit where it’s due.

Personal Fitness 12 Week Plan and Log: Use this form to help you meet requirement 7 and part of requirement 8.
Personal Fitness Individual Assessments Log: If you’re going it solo, this form will help you track your bi-weekly individual fitness assessment results across the 12-week program for requirement 8.
Personal Fitness Patrol Assessments Log: Patrols can easily track bi-weekly results of up to 5 Scouts per page on this group version of the 12-week assessment log for requirement 8.
Personal Management Financial Log: This form can help Scouts track income, spending and saving over the course of the merit badge to meet requirement 2.
Put the forms to good use and let us know how they work for you this summer!
