Update on MBU:

Merit Badge University 2018

Participants, Volunteers and Counselors,

I hope everyone made it through last weekend without too much damage.
In order to provide our scouts with an optimal experience, the MBU committee has decided to extend the day on Saturday March 10. We will run through period 1-3 then take a 30 min lunch break. Scouts should bring their own lunch. After lunch we’ll repeat by running a 2nd session of each of their merit badge classes.

Please note the following schedule changes.

On Saturday March 10 School doors will be open at 7am for counselors and volunteers to set up.
Scouts accompanying the counselors and volunteers are welcome to help set up.
Sign in tables should be up and running by 7:15. Please insure you sign in.

  • Doors are open for scouts at 8: 05 am and Scouts should proceed directly to their first period Merit Badge which will begin promptly at 8:20am and end at 9:20 am.
  • There will be a 10 min travel break between period 1 and period 2.
  • Period 2 Merit badge will begin at 9:30am and ends at 10:30am
  • There will be a 10 min travel break between period 2 and period 3.
  • Period 3 Merit badge will begin at 10:40am and ends at 11:40am
  • Following 3rd period at 11:40 we will have a 30 min. break for lunch

FOOD IS ONLY ALLOWED IN CAFFETERIA AND GYM

  • At 12:10pm scouts should be in their seats for the second session of their 1st period Merit badge 4th period ends at 1:10pm.
  • There will be a 10 min travel break between period 4 and period 5.
  • The second session of their 2nd period Merit badge will begin at 1:20pm and end at 2:20.
  • There will be a 10 min travel break between period 5 and period 6.
  • The second session of their 3rd period Merit badge will begin at 2:30 and ends at 3:30.
