Event Details

Another MBU Opportunity!


The University of Iowa Merit Badge University is being held on Saturday, March 2nd from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM and is a great opportunity for Scouts to work on merit badges in a focused, group setting. Some badges can be completed in a day, while some will require additional outside work. These sessions can offer Scouts an opportunity to work on some merit badges not typically offered in the troop or at summer camp. Mr. Ryan is coordinating this event so contact him with any questions by email at: You are invited to sign-up for this MBU by registering on our troop Eventbrite page.

Scouts may select up to 2 half day merit badges (1 in the morning and/or 1 in the afternoon) or 1 all day merit badge. Scouts should specify their top 3 choices and enter the merit badge names in order of preference in the Eventbrite registration page. Many merit badges have prerequisites that must be completed and brought to the MBU. Scouts will need to bring proof of completion of the prerequisites to the MBU.


Mr. Ryan will login and attempt to secure your spot as soon as you register on Eventbrite but it isn’t official until you have funds in your account to cover the fees. All merit badge sessions cost $10 each whether they are half day or all day. Please review the merit badge information carefully for details and prerequisites. The deadline for sign-up is Tuesday, Feb 12th, and you must have funds in your Scout account by this date, to cover your registration. The meeting on Feb 11th is a regular troop meeting, so you can drop off a check if you'd like. Questions about your Scout account can be emailed to


Lunch will be on your own and there are many restaurants in the area.  You may bring your own sack lunch, too.


Depending upon how many Scouts sign-up for this MBU, we may be able to take the troop bus.  As we get closer to the date and the attendance is closer to being finalized, additional details will be sent out. The MBU sessions are located in multiple buildings on the U of I campus and so Mr. Ryan will need help from adults to help provide two-deep leadership and make sure Scouts get to where they need to be.


Sign up now - don’t miss this opportunity!
