Merit Badge University at Monmouth College 2014

The time for Merit Badge University (MBU) is drawing near.  MBU is scheduled for Saturday, March 15, 2014, in the NEW Center for Science and Business on the campus of Monmouth College, Monmouth, IL.  This year, we hope to continue the tradition of past Merit Badge Universities as we bring college and community resources together in providing a quality Scouting program. We are offering a whopping 30 Merit Badges, five of which are required for Eagle Scout Rank!

Our intent for this Merit Badge clinic is to offer badges that can be accomplished in one day. For some badges, this will require a lot of work and attention to task to complete the requirements. Classes are intentionally kept small so that we can maintain quality, so register early. Community members who are experts in their field or college staff members will be teaching each badge.  We will provide blue merit badge cards and lunch for each registered Scout. In addition to the merit badge offerings for Scouts, we will offer online training for adult leaders as well as having the opportunity to work with a knot master.  

The following classes are now full:

 Auto Maintenance & Plumbing                Citizenship in the World
 Aviation    Computer
 Chemistry    Crime Prevention & Fingerprinting
 Chess    Personal Management
 Citizenship in the Community    Welding
