Troop 868 will NOT be conducting MBU in 2015.  The status of the program for the future is undetermined at this time.  We deeply appreciate all the support this program received over the 12 years it was held (2003~2014) during which time it grew to become the largest event of its kind in the state of Kentucky and one of the largest in the entire United States.

The event was always held on the last Saturday in February and afforded scouts from any troop, district, or council an opportunity to work on a host of different merit badges, many of which were not typically offered at most summer resident camps.  Overnight lodging on Friday night was provided to units coming from a long way away.
