2020 Merit Badge University Registration

Dear Leaders, Scouts, and Parents,
This is an update to Merit Badge University. This has been a very fluid process, as it is new for everyone this year trying to accomplish this online. 
There is now a registration fee of $5 per scout.  There are normally fees for this event each year; however, I really wish they would have been upfront  about this earlier. I have spoken to the organizers and they have opened up the “Parent Portal” for this event, so if everything works like our Summer Camp registration, I will be able to email out your assigned classes and Parent Portal credentials once registered. This will allow you to log into your son’s registration and make the payment directly online to the Council, as their offices are currently closed. 
I have also attached the latest course listing, as a few classes were removed and a few more offered. There are also times and dates assigned to some of the courses now, so you can get an idea if that is really what you want to do. 
***Please let me know tonight (Wednesday) or before noon tomorrow (Thursday) if you wish to proceed with your registration(s) since there is a fee(s) involved and the classes will fill up very quickly now. Also let me know based upon the new course list, if you want any classes changed. 
I apologize for the changes made, but as the organizer has stated, they are developing this event daily to make it the best that it can be for all of our scouts. Thanks for your patience and I will do my best to secure the classes your scout wants.
