A “McMerit badge” like no other

One of the best-kept secrets at the Jamboree is the highly coveted McDonald’s merit badge. So far, we’ve only spotted one. No word yet on what you may need to give up when patch trading for this collector’s item.

Proof again that Jamboree participants know how to ham it up!

(Thanks to Kenyon O’Dell with Red Bird Flight Simulations for the fresh creativity.)
