Merit Badge University

 

The Harvard College Friends of Scouting in conjunction with Spirit of Adventure Council presents Merit Badge University (MBU) 2018.  Merit Badges are an important part of the Boy Scout Program.  At MBU, Boy Scouts (not Webelos) may earn up to three MBs that are not typically available in a camp or troop setting including almost 20 STEM-related merit badges.

When: Saturday, March 3 (8 AM - 2:30 PM) & Saturday, April 7 (9 AM - 2:30 PM) - Both sessions are required. Some badges have a field trip on an intervening Saturday or Sunday to be determined by individual Merit Badge Counselors. Registering for session one automatically registers you for the same merit badges in session two.

What: An opportunity to earn three (non-Eagle required) merit badges while attending classes at Harvard University. For some badges, some requirements must be done prior to the first Saturday session. (Counselors will correspond with Scouts by the end of February with this information.) To complete some merit badges, other work will need to be done between the first and second session and emailed to the counselor.
