Some local places to work on merit badges.
Nearly every weekend JMDC sponsors Boy Scout Merit Badge programs. On Saturdays, our programs begin at 9:00 am or 1:00 pm, and on Sundays, our programs begin at 1:00 pm. Generally, the merit badge program’s length is 3-4 hours. Cost per Merit Badge program is $20 due at registration. Call our office to register, 951.685.5818. Please visit our DOWNLOAD page to get a copy of the merit badge overview for your chosen merit badge. Remember – Be Prepared! Have a copy of the Merit Badge Handbook and have completed as many of the requirements as you can or are expected in the overview. This will help you to get a complete signed Blue Card at the end of the day. If you do not complete all of the merit badge requirements, you will have a partially signed Blue Card with items to complete. When you have completed those requirements send/bring them into the office with a self-addressed and stamped envelope to have your Blue Card signed and returned to you.
The Boy Scouts and Wilderness Park have a history of being a great match. A variety of Boy Scout merit badge classes are available including Indian Lore, Mammal study, Reptile and Amphibian study, Environmental Science, Emergency Preparedness, First Aid, Citizenship in the Community, Citizenship in the Nation, Citizenship in the World, Communications, Sustainability, Personal Management, Personal Fitness, Pioneering, Camping and Hiking. Classes are held on Saturday.
