Spring 2019 MBU

Hello Scoutmasters,

Like past years we are unable to print out the workbooks for the scouts classes. We request that you print out the workbook for the classes your scouts are registered for. They can be found at  meritbadge.org.

We are happy to announce that registration for Merit Badge University for Spring 2019 is open!  Registration instructions are included below, but first we would like to go over some important dates:

April 7th: Registration closes

April 13th: Scout assignments sent out

April 15th: Logistical Email sent to Scoutmasters

TBD : Payments due to the Louisville scout office

April 20th: Merit Badge University!

April 27th: Records released

Registration cost for Spring MBU: $20

Swimming: $10/scout

Lifesaving: $10/scout

Space exploration: $10/scout

We might add some additional classes that have an additional fee in the near future, so please look out for any additional emails and keep on eye on our website: mbuonline.org.

The cost of lunches will be different this semester due to increase costs at the university:

Lunch cards for everyone: $12

T-Shirt: $10

Patch: $5

Furthermore, for this MBU we will have to require scouts to print out their materials and bring them to their classes, as unfortunately we are no longer able to fund the printing process.

Further event information can be found at: http://www.mbuonline.org/. Key information regarding the event can be found at: http://www.mbuonline.org/?page_id=426.

If you have any questions — whether that be about registration, payments, or the price– please feel free to contact us. We are more than happy to clear up any confusion!

Please also have your scouts print out the liability waiver and bring it to MBU:

Registering a Troop and Entering Scout Preferences

This semester, we have a new website for registering scouts. To do so, please go to www.mbu.online.. In order to register your scouts, you must first register as a scoutmaster. To do so, follow the “Sign up” link on the home page.

In order to sign up for an account, you must fill in all of the fields (we will never share your contact information with anybody unless you give us permission. Your email address will be used for communication, and to login to your account).

On the new site you will get a warning like the one below about your profile needing to be approved by an administrator. You will not be able to add scouts to your profile until we approve you.

Once you have been approved, you will see the following page. Click on Manage troop to get started. This will take you to a page that can answer more of your questions. If any of your questions can’t be answered on that page, please let us know and we will do our best to answer them.

And that’s it! While we believe that the new website should be fully functional, this is our second semester using it so you may experience some problems that we haven’t anticipated. If you do have any problems, please contact us at: crew492@colorado.edu. We will do our best to resolve the issue you are having as quickly as possible.
