Scouts Day

March 17, 2018

Scouts can get their hands dirty and earn a badge at AMOCA’s Scouts Day! This program was developed to help troops, dens, and packs to reach individual badge requirements in art and pottery. Participants learn about the technical, historical, scientific, and aesthetic aspects of ceramics. Come as a group, or sign up as an individual! At the conclusion of the workshop, scouts will qualify to receive their merit badges. This event is fun for Scouts in grades 1 – 12! Parent and group leaders work with their groups. Free admission for two chaperones per group is included. The fee is $25.00 per Scout. AMOCA patches are available for purchase for $5.00 at the AMOCA Store.
