Merit Badge University-December 5th In Person at Camp Bud Schiele
In-Council Scouts, have first chance at classes on Tuesday, November 10, at 6:00 p.m. If classes are not full by November 17, we will open to Out of Council Scouts.
The Piedmont Council Advancement Committee would like to cordially invite your scout or troop to participate in the 2020 Merit Badge University to be held on Saturday, December 5, 2020. The 2020 location for MBU will be at Camp Bud Schiele
Check-in will begin at 9:00 a.m.; classes will begin at 9:30 a.m. and end at 3:30 p.m.
A Health Screening will be conducted at check-in. Mask will be required.
(There has been a correction on the schedule, Citizenship in the World will be taught at Camp and not online. Also, American Cultures will be taught, not American Business)
MBU is an opportunity to learn from professionals and experts in a variety of fields. It is not intended to be an easy way to get a merit badge but rather a well-earned experience. Scout advancement works best when a scout learns, is tested, is reviewed and then recognized. To earn a badge at MBU will require scouts to participate fully and each scout must complete all requirements to earn a merit badge. Scouts who do not complete requirements at MBU will still have a chance to learn new skills and be on the way to completing the merit badge. Troops are directed to arrange for MB counselors in their home area to complete any partials.
As parents/leaders, you can help your Scouts be successful by registering them for appropriate badges. Younger scouts should be discouraged from advanced badges they may be unable to complete.
You can arrive at camp on Friday, December 4, and camp either as a family or Troop. Please email Kara.Miller@scouting.org about your arrival.
Yours in Scouting,
Piedmont Council Advancement Committee
