The University of Scouting is an adult leader’s learning adventure. It is an action-packed, fun-filled day of supplemental training where you choose the sessions you wish to take. Over 40 unique classes will be led by experienced volunteers who will help you enhance your ability to deliver a fun and exciting program to the youth in your unit(s). There are a variety of classes for new and veteran Scouters. For new Scouters, this training will be an important part of your Scouting journey. For experienced Scouters, this event will recharge your spirit and inspire you to a renewed enthusiasm for Scouting and all that it delivers to our youth. It’s also a great opportunity to network with other Scout Leaders, make new friends, reconnect with old friends, and share best practices across the Council.

Who should attend? University of Scouting is designed for all adult leaders regardless of function or program area. We also encourage interested parents to attend. The course selection is varied so that regardless of unit position, you will gain something to take back and implement in your unit. It doesn’t matter if you are a first-year leader or a 50-year veteran, everyone is guaranteed to learn something new or gain a clearer understanding of the various aspects of the Scouting programs. Class sizes are limited so register early. Some classes may have an extra fee to cover cost of materials, as indicated in the course descriptions.
