2019 BLUE RIDGE COUNCIL MERIT BADGE UNIVERSITY
Welcome to Blue Ridge Council Merit Badge University 2019! We will be changing things a little bit this year by offering it over 2 weekends, January 19 and January 26, so sign up for both weekends. First weekend will be mainly at Buncombe Street United Methodist Church and various satellite locations (maps attached). Second weekend will focus on Roper Mountain Science Center for a weekend of STEM merit badges. We will be adding classes as we confirm instructors so check back often. We hope this change will allow scouts to have new experiences as they travel on their journey to First Class or Eagle Scout. In the case of severe weather, we will move the weekends back to February 16th or 23rd, if needed. We always need volunteers to help us with two deep leadership so make sure your troop has volunteers ready to go, if needed.
Registration will close on January 7th. This allows us time to get rosters ready and instructors to be able to reach out to their scouts and parents. Payments will be due by January 4th at 4pm and scouts will be dropped from classes on January 5th. Refunds will be given if we have a severe weather postponement.
Scouts will need pen, paper and merit badge worksheets (instructors will not have them). If a class goes past 1pm, they will need to bring a lunch. Please see additional instructions under each merit badge.
Don't miss out on Adult Training offered: Scoutmaster Specific and Committee.
Trading Post will be at BSUMC on 1/19
We look forward to another great event and thank you for supporting our event!
