Chess Merit Badge Syllabus for Merit Badge Mania Event

Hello, a volunteer in my District has been asked to be a counselor at our merit badge mania event kind of at the last minute because another volunteer has another engagement.

I am reaching out to see if anyone has a Chess Merit Badge syllabus that they have used at a similar event. There are about 6 hours of instruction time.

I appreciate any input.

Some BSA articles:


  • Chess, 58 slide presentation courses, By Roberto Castro, Troop 592, Dan Beard Council, Cincinnati, OH, at “in” slide share site.

For more search internet for “teaching chess merit badge”.

Thank you, Bill. I forwarded those resources to the volunteer.
