Vests and Patches

A big part of the fun of Wildcat Nation is earning patches for different events, activities and achievements. But first, you must get a vest. There are a couple options for purchasing vests and putting on patches. 


Hector Ayala at Next Step Leather Goods is the guy who does pretty much everything with vests.

If you do not want to sew your own patches (currently $3 per patch as of November 2023), and you plan to be camping with us for at least 2-3 seasons, then a Patch Card (if available) may be a good investment. 


Patches are earned both formally and informally and are given out by Club Leadership at each campout to active participants.  A number of specific patches may be earned over time by showing spirit and knowledge, as well as participating in activities and representing the Six Aims.
