So, are you asking yourself “Why would I want to attend this event?” Well, besides the fun, fellowship, and special activities, it’s the place to be to bring new fire to yourself and your program. The University of Scouting will give you a renewed excitement for the Scouting program!
Can I attend? Absolutely! Everyone is invited. If you are an adult involved in Scouting, we have something for you. Whether you work directly with Scouts as a Leader or you work behind the scenes as a Committee Member or just a parent volunteer - even those of you who work on the District or Council Levels, there’s always more for you to learn.
Our University of Scouting Training Staff is top notch and is here to provide continuing training to supplement your required basic training. Want to learn how to use games to keep your boys engaged, or new ways to teach the same basic skills, check out the class tracks. Don’t limit yourself to one program area. Just because you are active in Cub Scouts doesn't mean you shouldn't attend a Boy Scout session that sparks your interest. This training is designed to help you broaden your horizons. Just stay in the training track you choose.

Interesting in learning new stuff? Ever want to know how to add activities to your program to keep the older scouts interested? What do you do with adults who want to help? How do you get your local Pack to participate in Troop activities? Want to know what it takes to be a Merit Badge counselor? We can help you find the answers to lots of things.
New this year we will be offering in-person training at our camp, so be prepared to dress for the weather and bring a camp chair for your comfort. There is something here for everyone. Remember, to become the best leaders we can be, we can’t ever stop learning!
