Merit Badge Day Moved to January 20, 2024

Updated flyer for the January 20, 2024 event is added below! The event will be held in either rain or shine.

For the upcoming Merit Badge Day on Saturday, January 20, 2024 at Palm Park, 5703 Palm Ave, Whittier, CA 90601, we have now released the merit badges offered and the session schedule.

Scouts should email the counselor to reserve their seat in a merit badge class (be sure to cc your Scout Leader and Parent on all emails, per 2-deep Youth Protection guidelines). Parents, please don’t email the counselor yourself to reserve a seat, your scout should be responsible for reserving their own seat (with the proper cc’s as mentioned above).

Cost: $15.00, Includes lunch

Scouting For Food: Please bring canned goods!

Please download the flyer by clicking here for forms, schedule, and counselor email addresses (on the last two pages).
