Welcome to 2014 Phoenix District Merit Badge University
The Phoenix District Merit Badge University takes place 22 February 2014. The day-long event consists of multiple sessions, in the morning and afternoon. Most classes are offered at both sessions, but not all, so please note the session time for each class. The program is open to all Scouts. Classes include Eagle-required and Super Nova elective merit badges. This University is open to all Districts including lone scouts.
- "Scouts should review their merit badge book thoroughly prior to attending the class."
- "Scouts should research and prepare all required reports prior to attending the class. "
- "For this reason, it is very important that you complete any requirements for your chosen merit badge listed in this brochure prior to your arrival.
The registration fee is $15 per Scout whether attending one or more sessions. Some classes require additional fees for special materials, and those are noted in the "Class Fee" column. Fees are non-refundable once registration closes. Registration closes February 1st and all fees are due at Roundtable (6FEB2014).
SCOUTS will need the proper Merit Badge book. Look carefully at the requirements each class will cover, and take note in particular of any requirements listed as pre-work. In most cases this work is necessary to complete some or all of the requirements covered in class. Scouts should bring the pre-work to class so the counselor can evaluate it for proper credit, and so the Scout can use it as needed in Class.
Although the classes have links to a merit badge web site, the official BSA merit badge site is our definitive source for current and past merit badge requirements, and we will work to make sure all counselors are working with those requirements. In the case of any discrepancies between resources, the requirements on the BSA site will prevail.
Unit Sign-up Instructions
Each Troop must designate one person from their Troop to act as registrar. This person must have a user ID and password on the registration web site (http:inteliscout.com) to be able to enroll Scouts when registration opens. Those who have created an ID in past years should be able to use the same ID and password. Every registrar must indicate a Troop affiliation to be able to enroll Scouts, and each Troop must have at least one adult affiliated with their Troop on the web site before the site will permit the Troop to register Scouts.
Registration will begin on 6 January and will close on 1 February. All fees are due at February Roundtable (6FEB14).
NOTE: All Troops will be required to send 1 adult for every 5 Scouts registered. These adults will be in the classrooms to provide administrative assistance and help maintain discipline. For this purpose, two adults each attending half of the day will count as 1 adult for the full day. We will communicate separately with Troops with registered Scouts to explain this in more detail. We are currently looking for Leaders. Please Email Phoenix District MBU if you would like to serve.
