Welcome to the University of Scouting
Dear Fellow Scouters;
On behalf of the Pine Tree Council we would like welcome you back to the University of Scouting! March 2017 will mark the 13th year of the University of Scouting and we are very excited to once again offer you so many great courses. If you are new to the UoS, you’ll see why this event creates so much Scouting excitement and has become the largest gathering of adult Scouters in our council. University is “beyond the basics” supplemental training, we hope you will gain much better insight into the world's most valuable youth programs and have a whole lot of fun doing it! This is also a fantastic opportunity to network with other scouters in the Pine Tree Council. Don’t forget to take time to browse the scouting showcase for information and ideas for your next scouting outing.
We want to thank the many volunteers who have given of themselves to organize, teach and lead this event. We are grateful for our cadre of the finest Scouting volunteer and professional staff instructors BSA has to offer. These instructors were selected for their knowledge and experience and also for their creativity, enthusiasm and love for the program. It is their dedication and commitment that will make this event so magnificent.
Please find tools to complete your registration for this event in the back of the catalog or register online at www.pinetreebsa.org/uos. Although our courses are classified by BSA program (Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, etc.), you are more than welcome and encouraged to enroll in any course offered. Be sure to take advantage of the early registration discount by registering right away!
It is your participation that makes Scouting programs such a valuable experience for our youth! Thank you.
