The annual Marshall University Merit Badge College will be Saturday, February 8 on the Huntington Campus. Check-in begins at 8:00am. The orientation session begins at 8:30am and the morning merit badge session begins at 9:00am.
A wide variety of Eagle required and non-Eagle merit badges are being offered. The fee for scouts is $13.
A limited selection of adult training sessions will be offered. There is no charge for these adult trainings, but adults may purchase a lunch ticket for $9.
Scouts and Scouters will meet in the Don Morris Room located in the Memorial Student Center. Scoutmasters, be sure your Scouts bring properly filled out Blue Cards!
Registration cost is $13.00 per Scout (includes lunch) and $9.00 per Adult lunch ticket. There will be no registration accepted after 4:30pm, February 5, 2020. All registrations will be done by unit only (pack, troop or crew). No individual registrations will be accepted.
Class Go-No-Go decisions will be made on February 1st! No refunds will be given, but substitution into an open Merit Badge / session will be allowed. Be aware that there will be a limit of Scouts placed on every class this year due to classroom logistics. Therefore, register early to avoid being turned away from your first choices. Register with your unit, as an individual registration will not be taken. ADDITIONAL MERIT BADGES may be added to the event. Please check the website for up to date information.
A provisional program will be in place for those scouts who wish to attend but whose units will not be participating. Provisional registration must be done through the unit so that unit leaders will be aware that the unit has a scout attending provisionally. Provisional scouts will be assigned to a provisional unit for the day and will check-in through the provisional unit leader. No more than 3 scouts from a unit may attend provisionally; if more than 3 attend, units will need to provide two-deep leadership.
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING CHANGE
Lunch for scouts is included in the registration fee. Adults may purchase a lunch ticket. Lunch will be in the Student Center Food Court. Limited menus will be offered at Chick-Fil-A and Steak n Shake for our group. Packets handed out to unit leaders will contain lunch tickets. There will be two separate lunch periods. Blue Tickets Eat at 11:30 and Red Tickets eat at 12:15!
