Welcome to the Merit Badge University


About the MBU

Welcome to the second Merit Badge University hosted by the Tennessee Military Department. We are extremely excited to offer all Scouts an opportunity to meet with subject matter experts and pursue a program that may serve as a hobby or future career builder.

Our instructors are from the Army and Air National Guard as well as leaders from the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency (TEMA)! Our intention is to provide a full day of exceptional education and inspiration!

The cost is $20 per Scout and $15 per adult (plus EventBrite fees). Please note: Earning a Merit Badge is not guaranteed. Each Scout will be expected to work on the associated badge requirements. Some steps may need to be performed before or after the event, such as the 12-week fitness program as part of the Personal Fitness Merit Badge. Unit leaders must ensure their Scouts are working within their level of learning.


23 Merit Badges Offered!
