Troop 149 Merit Badge Counselors

Last Updated November 2021

Here is an updated list of merit badge counselors for Troop 149, as of August 2021. If you do not see your name on this list, your registration may have lapsed.

Contact the merit badge counselor to see if they are currently offering the merit badge; offering badges is at the counselor's discretion depending on their availability. Contact Mr. Vargas if you need contact information.

As always, you must obtain a signed blue card (either real or virtual) from Mr. Vargas prior to starting a merit badge. The Scout, not the parent, should make the request (while, as always, copying a parent in the email).

Eagle required merit badges are marked with an asterisk.
