This is a GREAT opportunity for Scouts to earn that one Eagle required that has slipped passed them, or to get a First Class Scout a nudge to Life.  We provide food on campus at Corlew Dining Hall and a patch for your experience.  We hope that you will join us in February!

Click on Forms in the menu and read the application packet before registering.

Please put your unit number in the subject line of all correspondence! Thanks.

Construction alert: Middle Tennessee is under construction from Main Street to Greenland Drive. Please allow an extra 15-30 minutes in your arrival time to compensate for the extra navigation in driving.

Please be advised, that some of the merit badges have different age requirements and restrictions:

  • Environmental Science Scouts must be 14 years of age.
  • All other Scouts must be over the age of 13 or First Class.
  • Aviation requires transportation to the Airport and the parent to stay there all day.  Pizza is offered to the scouts and parents.  Parents are not required to pay MBU fee if Scout is taking Aviation.

Special Weather Policy

In case of inclement weather, MBU may be cancelled and notifications will be made via this website and emails to registered units. Due to limited availability of facilities, we do not have a "snow day" scheduled. If you feel it unsafe to travel, we will refund your fees - even if MBU is not cancelled.
