Scout Merit Badge and Webelos Programs

Hands-on Education is the Key to Enthusiastic Learning!

Our programs are designed to cover all the requirements needed to receive your merit badge, belt loop or pin. Blue cards will be signed off after you have completed all requirements. If you still have requirements remaining following the program, simply complete the requirements and send proof of completion along with your Blue card to Jurupa Mountains Discovery Center and your Counselor will review the material, sign your card and mail it back to you.

    The Jurupa Mountains Discovery Center is proud of our Webelos program. We currently offer Naturalist, Geology, and Forestry. Pack Leaders are encouraged to call JMDC and schedule their program with a Counselor.  Cost per class is $20 per scout.


    Jurupa Mountains Discovery Center is proud of our Girl Scout Program.  Leaders are encouraged to call JMDC and schedule their programs with the Counselor.  Gold Award and Silver Award projects are also encouraged at JMDC.


    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.  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.
