Welcome to MeritBadgeMan

Thank you for visiting MeritBadgeMan! My team, and I, have set up Boy Scout Merit Badge classes for Scouts in Southern California. I, along with some very professional helpers, will do our best to make the classes informative, as well as engaging!

Proudly supporting various Scouting Units in Southern California

Note: if you have a non-Scout friend that is interested in joining Scouting, and is interested in a class, feel free to bring them - at no charge. They will not get a blue card, of course, but they might become interested enough to join your Troop!
