MBU@WVU  2017 -
Saturday, February 25, 2017

Merit Badge University is hosted at West Virginia University and is a one-day event that is an opportunity for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts to work at West Virginia's flagship institution on an array of merit badges, including ones not typically offered at summer camps. MBU@WVU is sponsored by West Virginia University and Mountaineer Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America. Classes are taught for the entire day, and if prerequisites are met, scouts typically can complete an entire merit badge (or two) in one day!

A description and report about last year’s Merit Badge University can be found here. A sampling of photos from MBU@WVU 2016 also are available here.

REGISTRATION FOR MBU@WVU 2017 IS NOW CLOSED. Thank you for your interest in MBU@WVU 2017. Happily, a record number of Scouts have registered!  Given the demand for badges, no switching or other changes are possible at this point, and no changes will be possible on the day of MBU.  Almost all badges are completely full. Please check back at this site later to complete an interest form regarding MBU@WVU 2018, which will be held in February of 2018.
