Along the way, you'll stack up a nice collection of merit badges and end up well prepared to blaze down many of Boise's important, and sometimes imposing, trails.
The very idea of scouting and being recognized for meritorious achievement is set deep in Idaho's DNA. One of its earliest practitioners was Sacagawea, who scouted the uncharted territory of the Mountain West in the early 1800s (yes, Lewis and Clark were along for the walk).
