Designing Games That Teach

Come to Philmont and play games for a week. Using the Game Design merit badge as its core resource, you’ll participate in and learn how to design and facilitate games of all sorts. Game design stimulates creativity and can be a great way to teach communications, problem-solving, trust, planning, leadership, goal setting and cooperation. Your Scouts are going to love this new merit badge and this is your chance to get in on the ground floor.


Week 2: June 16-22
