SCOUT SHOP website.
  The BSA shops (online and at the Cockrell Center) sell scouting and camping items, and carry just about anything else related to scouting needs.  [GLZ Note: I've actually gotten some very good buys there, especially via their clearance offerings.]  If you've never been to the Scout Shop (near 610 North Loop and T.C. Jester), it's worth a trip someday just to browse around and see what all they have to offer.  (And to check out the beautiful SHAC facility in general.)  Additionally, there are a couple other official Scout Shops in the Houston area.

Website for MERIT BADGE Worksheets and Blue Cards.  This is a great site for seeing all of the various Merit Badges that are available, and for printing out the worksheets covering the MB requirements and the blue cards needed to get started working on MB's.  (Your Scout should eventually become very familiar with this site.)
