Citizenship in the Community Merit Badge

Join us for a day of learning about how our community in which we live is a part of our nation. We will learn how communities differ from each other and may be governed differently.  We will understand that regardless of how local communities differ, they all have one point in common: In the United States, local government means self-government. And that good citizens help to make decisions about their community through their elected local officials.

At Bonduel High School Commons

9am – 2pm

Cost $20.00/Scout

Lunch will be provided.

Prerequisite: Requirement #3a, 4a, 4b, and #7c.
