The merit badge program is one of Boy Scouting's basic character-developing tools. Earning merit badges gives a boy the kind of confidence that comes from learning and developing skills to achieve a goal.
The PowWow classes are taught by experts in a group setting, along with merit badge counselors who work with Scouts. However, attending group instruction does not, by itself, qualify a Scout for any merit badge—he must complete all merit badge requirements as well.
The BYU Merit Badge PowWow has been running for 60 years and is one of the largest Boy Scout PowWows in the United States. It is held on the beautiful campus of Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. More than 7,500 Scouts from Utah and other areas attend the Spring and Fall PowWows.
Our Fall and Spring Merit Badge PowWows have gained so much popularity—more than 7,500 Scouts attend each year—that we’ve decided to open a small, limited-enrollment Summer PowWow.
SAVE THE DATE: August 8 (6:00–8:00 p.m.) and August 12 (9:00 a.m.–3:30 p.m.).
Learn from great instructors, earn multiple merit badges in a short amount of time, interact with Scouts from around the state, and have a great time! Space is very limited for this Summer PowWow, so be sure to register early. Registration opens June 21 at 9:00 a.m. mountain time.
Cost will be $39 per scout. Price includes: t-shirt, lunch at the BYU Cannon Center, snacks and unforgettable memories!
