Merit Badge University 2022
2022 BLUE RIDGE COUNCIL MERIT BADGE UNIVERSITY
Welcome to Blue Ridge Council Merit Badge University 2022! We will be again offering it over 2 weekends this year, January 15 and January 22, so sign up for both weekends! The 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 have a limited number of classes and class maximums this year but we will be add classes as we confirm instructors and safety so check back often. If you do not pay at the time of initial registration, this mainly applies to troops registering their Scouts versus individual Scouts, make sure you "book" the registration. Contact Roy Schumpert to verify as if it not "booked" or paid it will not show the Scouts in classes as they are not fully registered. We hope BRC MBU will allow Scouts to have new experiences as they travel on their journey to 1st Class or Eagle Scout. This event is not for Cub Scouts, Webelos or Arrow of Light Scouts.
We will follow all local, state and CDC guidelines for the safety of our Scouts and instructors. We will send an email to those registered the week before the event as those guidelines change often. If the event cancels due to Covid or weather, full refunds will be given.
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, Committee and Citizenship in Society
We look forward to another great event and thank you for supporting our event!
