Join us for this great day of training!  The University of Scouting (UoS) is a training for adult leaders that will offer fun, learning, and fellowship for all who attend. It is the only time during the year where you can find, all in one place, the widest variety of training opportunities in all program areas. Whether you are new to Scouting or a veteran, the University of Scouting will provide interesting courses in Cub Scouting, ScoutsBSA, Venturing and what we call General Scouting Studies. With over 50 classes to choose from, there is sure to be something for everyone. Participants will enhance their Scouting & leadership skills to create a better Scouting experience for their youth. The main focus is on adult training. However, there is also some youth training available.
