University of Scouting

Come for just the morning or all day, to focus on serious topics or just to have fun learning new skills! The University of Scouting offers more than 100 classes in 5 different “colleges,” with dozens of new classes each year. Sign up for anything that interests you, from Weird Science to Dutch Oven Cooking to Skits & Songs, and more! You will find training on topics not covered anywhere else at any other event in our council. We focus on topics you can take back to your unit and use right away; practical information that will help you improve your program or the organization itself.

Buy lunch from us or bring your own. Either way, please come eat with us in the auditorium, as we will present a lunch-time Fireside Chat with Council Executive Jon Yates. This talk will feature discussions of events important to our council, our units, and the BSA as a whole.
