 Descriptions of individual merit badges and requirements may be found at www.meritbadge.org.     

Scouts will have the opportunity to participate in three different merit badges at MBC.  MBC operates in a manner where scouts who apply themselves can normally finish all three merit badges, including those requiring 90 day diligence or extracurricular activity such as Horsemanship prior to the end of the third session. Classes will fill quickly as this is a very popular event and draws approximately 600 scouts from several BSA Councils in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.  Primary and secondary choices are not always available.  Scouts wishing to attend MBC should submit a list of AT LEAST FOUR merit badge choices from the list above to Mr. Bryan by December 1, 2014.  Mr. Bryan will conduct the on-line class registration and inform scouts of final selections.  Payment may be made through individual scout accounts and deposited into within two weeks of class selection notification (anticipated to be December 10th).    MBC has also offered adult training classes that have included CPR, field first aid, etc.  These classes have normally been no cost to adults.  A listing of available adult classes will be posted on or about December 1st.    Classes will be held on the University of Dayton campus.  Adult support in the form of transportation to and from MBC is very important.  If you are an adult willing to help transport scouts, please contact Mr. Bryan right away.  He will have limited space in his car to transport scouts.  He is also staff at MBC and would need to leave Columbus early enough to arrive in Dayton by 7:45 AM each session and not return back to town until close to 2:30 to 3:00 PM.  If your scout is willing to spend the extra time, please contact Mr. Bryan about that as well.
