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.
The University of Scouting offers a wide range of unique adult leader training courses in the following areas:
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 two of the 50 classes 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 examples of more than 40 available classes.
College of Venturing: Venturing advisors can spend the entire day on Venturing-specific topics.
College of General Studies: Leaders and parents can take other general studies topics which span a variety of scouting programs.
College of Commissioner Science: Commissioners have a slate of offerings to help you earn a Bachelor's, Master's or Doctorate of Commissioner Science.
Who should attend University of Scouting?
YOU should attend for sure, along with hundreds of your fellow Scout leaders from Circle Ten Council. All registered leaders, potential leaders and parents that are looking for the very best program for their Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturers will find a variety of class sessions relevant to their position in Scouting.
