In 1997, local Potawatomi Trails District Scoutmaster Keith Miller and some fellow Scouters hosted the 1st Merit Badge University in Elmhurst, Illinois. The turnout was light – only about 100 Scouts. They brought sack lunches and ate in the hallway. Today, nearly 2,000 Scouts and more than 300 Volunteers attend and run MBU. Scouts come from 9 States and 15 Councils to take advantage of this annual event. We teach 90+ merit badges, deliver hundreds of classes and serve thousands of meals on the big day.

Registration begins on January 7th and runs through February 9th.

Classes book quickly, so start by reviewing our Course Catalog and Class Schedule at TFCmeritbadgeuniversity.org.
