MBU is a great opportunity for Scouts to work on advancement toward Eagle Scout and/or work toward earning a merit badge in one of 25 areas.

We want to make sure that the Scouts learn as much from the courses as possible. However, there are some requirements that cannot be completed within our MBU setting. These are items that the Scout will need to complete on their own once they get home and their local Scoutmaster will need to approve.


• While not required, Scouts should consider printing and bringing the appropriate merit badge worksheets for the badge(s) they will work towards at MBU. is a great site to obtain this information.

• Scouts need to bring any and all reports, projects, “props” for demonstration, or any other requirements that have been completed beforehand. Be prepared to present these to your counselor during your class.  Bring any written approvals by parents or your Scoutmaster if needed.

• We strongly suggest that all Scouts bring paper, pencil and the merit badge books for their classes from your troop’s library. The merit badge book should be read before attending MBU. ALL SCOUTS ARE EXPECTED TO BE ACTIVE PARTICIPANTS TO FULFILL THEIR MERIT BADGE REQUIREMENTS.

• A “Blue Card” sheet will be given to each Scout showing requirements completed as well as those not finished. It is then the Scout’s responsibility to get this to his Scoutmaster to record and sign off on the remaining work for that merit badge.


• MBU is held throughout the entire church property. Conduct yourselves properly. Other than the opening flag ceremony, the church sanctuary is OFF LIMITS!

• If you see a Scout doing something they shouldn’t be doing, even if they aren’t in your Troop, please correct them. If you see a Scout doing something right, please congratulate them.


• Breakfast snack will consist of a granola/fruit bar.  Coffee will also be available.

• Lunch: TBD. It will be served in the church dining hall/fellowship halls.  If weather permits, we will eat outside at Wagner Park/Bandshell.

• NO FOOD OR DRINK will be allowed anywhere in the church besides the dining area.
