BSA Troop 71, Graysville UMC, Graysville, GA., and The Chattanooga Area Audubon Society are pleased to offer a Merit Badge University (MBU) focusing on the Outdoor and Environmental badges. This opportunity will be offered at the Audubon Acres property in the East Brainerd part of Chattanooga. Audubon Acres Merit Badge University is a camporee and MBU all rolled into one event. Your unit can camp for the weekend and ALL of your Scouts, regardless of rank or age, can choose a program to attend. This MBU will focus on the Outdoor and Environmental merit badges that may be hard to accomplish individually. It is scheduled for November 1-3, 2013. Fees are $20 per Scout, which includes the MBU, a patch, and lunch on Saturday. Two adult leaders are free with every 10 Scouts. If you have less than 10 Scouts, all leaders are $10 each with Saturday lunch included. This event will also serve as the John Ross Fall Camporee. Camping all weekend is an additional $5.00 fee, but camping is not required to attend. Guests, parents and non-registered leaders may attend and have lunch on Saturday for an additional fee. All proceeds after expenses will be given to Audubon to further their education and environmental programming. The Coleman Company will be on site during the day on Saturday with gear and equipment for sale at huge discounts to scouters. The Audubon Visitors center and gift shop will be open all weekend. Lunch will be catered by Rib-N-Loin and will be a BBQ pork plate, beans, slaw, sauce and bread. On Sunday morning, there will be an “Iron Chef” cooking competition using your Dutch oven. You will be given a mystery box of supplies and you must create and cook a dish using those ingredients. Prizes will be awarded.
