MBU Classes

MBU @ MTSU February 23, 2019; Murfreesboro, TN

8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Central Time

  • Registration Table Opens at 7:30 a.m.
  • Classes meet 9:00 a.m. through 3:45 p.m.
  • Scouts Must be First Class OR Age 13 by date of MBU

Registration closes by December 10, 2018, but most classes fill by late October.

  • Holiday breaks and our desire to get assignments back to units ASAP force deadline enforcement.
  • MBU is designed to assist Scouts in completing requirements for merit badges. The instructors will address as many requirements as possible during the class. In order to facilitate these objectives,

ALL Scouts must:

  • Bring {do not send} a signed Waiver/Release form {ALL SCOUTS must bring on MBU Day}
  • Read the entire merit badge book for the assigned class before MBU
  • Complete all prerequisites before MBU day; bring to class. Bring a merit badge book to MBU.

Scout Leaders must certify that all scouts :

  • Have a Waiver/Release form signed by parent or legal guardian*,
  • Are eligibile and approved to take the merit badges/classes requested, and
  • Have completed the prerequisite requirements where necessary.**

Most badges are completed at MBU because SCOUTS should be prepared and have their prerequisites done PRIOR to coming to MBU.

You will register for classes online. See application packet.
