Merit Badge University

Merit Badge University – March 3, 10 & 24, 2018 (Registration Open January 1, 2018 – February 8, 2018) – Southeastern Vocational Technical High School, 250 Foundry Street, South Easton, MA 02375

Mayflower Council’s annual MBU event provides scouts with the opportunity to complete three merit badges during the month of March. Held on three Saturday mornings that month, scouts attend three merit badge classes (approximately 1 hour each). A number of badges (such as Aviation) provide field trips during the “off week” to complete out-of-classroom requirements.

For first-year scouts, MBU offers a 2 hour flight-to-eagle program, which covers a selection of Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class rank requirements. This program helps these younger scouts focus on early rank requirements, while giving them the opportunity to take one merit badge class.

Scoutmasters are required to submit our Troop’s online MBU registration through the council’s DoubleKnot site during January 1 – February 10, 2018. If no members of our Troop are attending, the MBU registration process permits individuals to register for this event.

There is a $25 registration fee for this event.
