What is University of Scouting?

The University of Scouting is an annual training event for Boy Scout, Cub Scout, and Venturing leaders. This training conference is for leaders from our entire council and takes place in a festive atmosphere. Most classes are taught by volunteers who share not just their knowledge but their passion about their subject.

The University of Scouting is a one-day "convention." Each Scoutmaster or Cubmaster should take all leaders to this learning extravaganza. A leader can chose two or three morning and two or three afternoon classes. Some classes take two sessions and others are all day. 

Classes are arranged into five colleges: General Interest, Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, Adventure (Venturing, Exploring and Order of the Arrow), and Commissioning. You can mix and match classes from any number of colleges. There is so much that is new in Scouting! Bring all your Unit’s Scout Leaders, Volunteers and Parents to the University of Scouting.
