What is the University of Scouting?
The University of Scouting is a one-day supplemental training opportunity for all adult volunteer Scouters. Supplemental training goes beyond Fast Start, Specific, and Advanced Training to give Scouters knowledge & skills on specific topics to help them deliver the promise of scouting to their youth. Our goal is to offer additional classes that help you as a leader now, instead of finding out the information years later.
All Adult Volunteers should attend this event. The event includes classes for all Cub, Boy Scout, Venturing, and Commissioner adult volunteers at all levels in Scouting. In addition, a popular program from last year is for the Youth.
University of Scouting is designed to be a day of learning while having fun. Simply stated, it is the finest one-day supplemental training offered in the BSA - guaranteed to give you confidence and skills necessary for an exciting program. This training offers a variety of courses designed to give additional information to help in all areas and programs of the Boy Scouts of America.
Some of the methods touched upon in different basic trainings are treated in greater depth at University of Scouting. There are no prerequisites as this training is intended to enrich your program experience.
University of Scouting provides quality supplemental training to allow leaders to enhance and improve the program quality that they deliver and to have a positive impact on the youth of our council.
