National Outdoor Badge - Requirements

The National Outdoor Badge requires 25 nights of camping. Scouts may only use one week-long adventure for the Camping Merit Badge. Do the same guidelines apply here?


Here is the requirement, like with all Scouts BSA requirements: the Scout must do what it says, no more no less.

Complete 25 days and nights of camping—including six consecutive days (five nights) of camping (Sea Scouts may be on a boat), approved and under the auspices and standards of the Boy Scouts of America—including nights camped as part of requirements 1 through 3 above. Scouts must complete six consecutive days (five nights) of the 25 nights at a BSA accredited resident camp.

There are no limitations on nights as long as they occur under the auspices of a BSA Program (Cubs, Scouts, Crew, Ship)
