Aquila District's Merit Badge Jamboree gives Scouts the opportunity to meet and work with qualified, registered Merit Badge Counselors on a variety of Merit Badges. All Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, and qualified Venturers are welcome to attend. There is typically a Jamboree in the spring and fall each year, with different Merit Badges offered at each event. Jamborees are also opportunities for adults to take trainings like Youth Protection, Merit Badge Counselor, and Scoutmaster Specific.
