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 over 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 7,000 Scouts from Utah and other areas attend the Spring and Fall PowWows.
