MBU [Updated for Fall 2018]

Hi Scouts,

Each year, the CU students in Alpha Phi Omega run Merit Badge University. This is open and encouraged for all Scouts. This year, they are offering 29 merit badges. Details below.

WHAT: Merit Badge University [MBU]

WHEN: Saturday, November 3, 2018

TIME: 8:30 AM to 5:15 PM

CU MEETING LOCATION and MAPComing Soon – we don’t know which building they will be using this year. Stay tuned.

WHO: Open to ALL Scouts!

DESCRIPTION: MBU is an opportunity for Scouts to be on the CU campus and attend merit badge classes taught by college students who are members of Alpha Phi Omega. They have one session in the morning, lunch and two sessions in the afternoon. Scouts will be assigned 3 merit badges out of their request for 6 badges. They will be on campus and travel to each of the three classes. CU students are the instructors.

IMPORTANT – almost all of the merit badges offered at MBU require outside work. If you have a partial from a previous MBU, don’t take it again since they will probably be covering the same requirements you did the first time. Be sure to check the incomplete merit badge list on the troop Website.

COST: $18 billed through Scout troop accounts. 

LUNCH: Center for Community [C4C] Age 13 and older - $12.00. Age 12 and under - $9.50. Billed through Scout accounts with the registration fee, not at MBU. Lunch must be preordered.

PAYPAL SURCHARGE: if you would rather pay with a credit card rather than through the troop account, you can use PayPal and include a surcharge of 3%.

CANCELLATION INFORMATION: once registration closes, MBU will not offer any refunds for any reason. Please contact Scott before the registration closes if you must cancel.
