What is University of Scouting?
The University of Scouting is an adult and youth 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 60 sessions are 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.
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. 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.
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 knots, map and compass, Dutch oven cooking and other skills that will help your Scout on their path to Eagle. Have a Scout with disabilities? Take the Essentials in Serving Scouts with Different Abilities course to learn about the resources to help all Scouts succeed.
