University of Scouting will be held at Haller Middle School in Arlington, WA on January 25, 2020 from 9am – 4pm

What is the University of Scouting?

This training program is unlike any other training available to unit leaders throughout the year. Experienced leaders and trainers from across our council are offering more than 60 courses designed to provide you with knowledge of how Scouting works as well as give you true to life examples of how to make the program you provide our youth a positive life experience. You’ll know the fun and excitement of a day spent with hundreds of other Scouters as they share their enthusiasm for Scouting. The University of Scouting was formerly called the Program and Training Conference.

Who should attend?

University of Scouting is designed for all adult leaders in the Boy Scouts of America regardless of function or program area. We also have courses available for older, registered youth (with official permission slips). 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’re 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.

We also encourage interested parents to attend.  Gain information on what backpack is best for your Scout or what happens when your Scout goes from Webelos to a troop.  Learn about Merit Badges or the path to Eagle.  Have a Scout with disabilities?  Take the Scouting with Disabilities course to learn about the resources to help all Scouts succeed.
