What is the University of Scouting?

The University of Scouting is a Scout leader’s learning adventure! It is an action-packed, fun-filled single day of supplemental training where you choose the sessions that you wish to take. Sessions are led by experienced volunteers who will help you enhance your ability to deliver a fun and exciting program to the scouts.

Colleges within the University of Scouting:

The University of Scouting offers a wide range of unique adult leader training courses in the following areas:

College of General Studies: Leaders and parents can take other general studies topics which span a variety of scouting programs. Some potential examples of classes are: the new NOVA/STEM program, Internet Advancement, and Knots and Ropes.

College of Cub Scouting: Cub Scout leaders can pick up tips on "Making the Most of your Den Chief" or "Keeping Chaos from Controlling your Den" – just a few of the classes that may be offered.

College of Boy Scouting: Boy Scout and Varsity Scout leaders can learn about any of BSA's high-adventure bases (including The Bechtel Summit) or get some pointers on "Meaningful Scoutmaster Conferences" - two great classes that might be offered.

College of Venturing: Venturing advisors can spend the entire day on Venturing-specific topics. This year’s college may include training topics for the upcoming changes in the Venturing program.

College of Youth Leadership: Youth members (specifically Boy Scout level and higher) may be able to attend a course like Den Cheif Training.

College of Commissioner Science: Commissioners have a slate of offerings to help you better serve the units you serve.
