Highland Methodist Merit Badge University - Saturday Feb 21, 2015

posted Nov 28, 2014, 11:25 AM by Kevin Parker

Troop 357 will again be hosting Merit Badge University on Saturday, 21 February 2015 at Highland United Methodist Church.
Pre-registration is open now and will close SOON.

We will register as a Troop so it is imperative that you register as soon as possible so that we can get the selections in for all Scouts. Registering late means you jeopardize not only your selections, but those of other Scouts in Troop 350. Hence, Troop 350 will close registration on Wednesday Dec 3rd.

Highland Methodist is located at Troop 1901 Ridge Road, Raleigh, NC 27607. Drop off is at 8AM and full day courses will generally go until 3-4PM. 

Please see attached Merit Badge Prerequisites which you are required to complete before attending the session. There is also a registration instructions and policies document. Please read.

Mr. Parker as well as other Scoutmasters/Adult volunteers will be onsite during the day. Please route any questions to Mr. Parker.

Please signup as soon as possible for your MB selections HERE.
