CAC Merit Badge Saturday

Join us for our first Merit Badge Saturday in 2021.  May 22nd will be virtual and all classes will be online.

We are planning a second Merit Badge Saturday for September 11th. We are hopeful it can be offered in person to combine not only Merit Badge offerings for our youth, but also training classes to help our leaders gain the knowledge and skills to make their roles in Scouting more enjoyable and successful.  

Only $20 for the day includes 1 full day class or 2 half day classes and a patch mailed directly to you!  The fee is the same if you choose to only do one half day class as if you do either one full day or two half day classes.  

Remember that anything worth doing is worth doing well, so please "do your best" work for these classes or you will be asked to try again.  All Scouts on the call must participate in order to get credit for the work.

Not all Merit Badges will be completed and partials will be awarded.  Blue cards will be mailed with your patches within 7 days of completion of the event.

For questions or concerns, please contact Laura Lovell at Laura.Lovell@Scouting.org or call/text 530-770-1152.

Here are the pre-reqs and items that won't be covered in class.  If your Scout can accomplish the requirements before class, please have them available during the meeting for turn in.  We will need access to a computer or other digital device for most classes to complete the work durig the class (outside of the zoom connection also required).
