Merit Badge University - 2024

Event Details

Welcome to Merit Badge University 2024

Camp Big Timber - Registration has now closed for printing of the actual schedules. 
If you need to swap classes, you can do so when you check it. Merit Badges can be swapped until the slots are full, so please check availability before you arrive. Class Counts are on the right sidebar. 
WALK-IN REGISTRATION IS ALLOWED. Please check availability of Merit Badges before you arrive so you will not be disappointed.  (Don't forget your AB health form!)
When MBU began 27 years ago - less than 100 Scouts attended. Today, over 1,500 Scouts from all over the United States attend this event, making our MBU one of the largest in the Nation. Whether this is your first visit to MBU or you are a veteran, please read the instructions carefully as some of our registration procedures have changed.

Ready to get started? First, review the Class Schedule, Availability Grid,  and read through the Event Class Catalog. These documents contain class times, descriptions, requirements and special instructions from our Instructors. 

MBU is an all day event. Participant registration begins at 7:30am, 1st class begins at 9am, and 4 class sessions are offered during the day. Scouts are dismissed around 4:30pm or after their last MB session. A hot lunch and beverage are provided as part of the fee. Snacks and additional drinks are available for purchase during the day and a trading post is onsite with Scouting items. See the MBU Website for details.

General Information: MBU is a uniformed event. Scouts, Adult Leaders and Instructors are required to be in uniform throughout the day.

WHAT TO BRING to MBU: Please remember to BRING a PAPER COPY of the BSA Health Form Parts A & B. These will be collected. ALL Scouts and Adult Staff & MBCs MUST turn in a Health Form to participate. This is a BSA requirement.

The pre-requisites should be done ahead of time if possible or can be finished up after MBU. (Pre-Reqs can be found in the MBU Catalog on the sidebar.) Scouts should read the Merit badge book and come prepared. The MB Counselor will check off the prerequisites that they have done outside of class when they show proof of completion, The other requirements will be done in class. You  can access online free versions of all the merit badges at Merit Badges @ Merit Badges | Boy Scouts of America (| Or you can google them. The requirements are listed in the front of the book or on the worksheets. Having said all that, your Scouts will get their Schedule, patch lunch wristband and other stuff when they check in on Saturday. Make sure that they have a copy of their AB, BSA Health form to turn in at check-in.
