About Meritbadge.Info

Our Story

Meritbadge.info began as a Wood Badge ticket item. (92-46 Bear Patrol) and is the result of thousands of hours of experience running the Merit Badge University at Kennesaw State University (Georgia). This program served thousands of Boy and Girl Scouts for ten years. This website is part of ongoing service to the community and is free to our users.

Mike Jenkins and Rodrigo Cano have invested several thousand more hours building this website to provide the ability to create, share, register and manage events while providing scouts with nationwide opportunities for advancement and fun. They built this system to allow scouters to sign up for events on a first-come, first serve basis and allow event managers to focus on event quality by automating the drudgery associated with manual information collection.

We thank the National Boy Scouts of America, especially their technical team and Chief Scout Executive, for their invaluable support. Meritbadge.info is able to continue serving our communities thanks to their collaboration.

Yours in Scouting,
Mike Jenkins & Rodrigo Cano
Wood Badge 92-46, Bear Patrol
