Troop 776 Merit Badge University

Troop 776 Merit Badge University 
Advent United Methodist Church, Simpsonville
October 22, 2016

The learning environment at a MBU is very much like a regular school day divided into two 4-hour teaching sessions making it possible for the typical scout to work on at least two different merit badges, Cyber Chip, or Tenderfoot rank badge requirement during the day. Scouts will be able to sign up for two sessions. 

Are you a first year Scout that missed Summer Camp? A session will be offered to cover requirements that Scouts have an opportunity to complete at Summer Camp. 

All Scouts are welcome to attend.
