TFC: 2023 Training Academy

Event Details



Be Prepared For Your Scouts' QUANTUM LEAPS!



Online pre-registration is closed. Walk Ins are welcome on Saturday, but seats are limited! Arrive early (7:30 am or later) to reserve one of the remaining spots.  Also, bring your lunch and some extra spending money. We will have a Snack Shack selling drinks and snacks, but no extra lunches.  Limited quantities of patches may be available for purchase at Registration, too.

Have you noticed how quickly your Scouts change and grow throughout their Scouting journeys? 

As a leader, you have the opportunity to assist your Scouts' progress - often in the form of Quantum Leaps, which will help transform them into the high caliber leaders and adults they are destined to become!

Attend Training Academy | Quantum Leaps: Scouting Transforms this year to learn new strategies, techniques, activities, and adventures you can use in your unit to assist your Scouts in their individual journeys. From collaborative, leader-specific classes to enrichment courses, there’s something for everyone: camping, cooking, advancement, membership & recruiting, hands-on classes for activities, marketing your unit, special needs strategies, and much more! 

What:  Adult training for all levels of Scouting (Cub Scout, Webelos, Scouts BSA, and Venturing). Take up to five classes during the day. (Some classes are longer than a single class period.)
