      The Alpha Phi Omega chapter at the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities, would like to invite you to our event, Merit Badge University. Following the success of our previous MBUs, our goal remains to provide badges that will help scouts reach their Eagle Status, as well as badges that will be enjoyable to those who have completed their Eagle requirements.

            Scouts will be able to earn two (2) badges through the course of this event. The day will be structured with a morning session, followed by lunch, and then an afternoon session. The same merit badge may be offered during both sessions if demand is high. Some badges are full-day badges, meaning they take both sessions to complete (only Chemistry this year). For your scout to earn their badge, theyMUST complete any pre or post requisites found on the sign up form, and participate in the activities during their merit badge.

       The registration fee is $25 dollars for the full day, or $15 for one badge session. This fee includes lunch, and basic supplies needed to fulfill the requirements of each badge. The fee should be turned in during check-in from 7:30-8:15am. Checks must be made out to “Alpha Phi Omega – Gamma Psi,” to be accepted. Payment can be made at check in on the day of the event. We request you bring your blue cards for each badge.
