University of Scouting


February 11, 2017 - Auburn United Methodist Church

What is the University of Scouting?

The University of Scouting is a fun filled day for parents and leaders. It is action-packed supplemental training where you choose the sessions that you want. Sessions are led by experienced volunteers whose training enhances your ability to deliver a fun and exciting program to your Scouts. Care is taken to make sure that sessions do not duplicate training found in basic leader training courses. Sessions are focused on ways to improve Scouting directly in your Pack or Troop.

The University of Scouting is divided into four separate "colleges".

General Studies College sessions are topics that relate to all Scouting programs.

Cub Scout College sessions focus on the Cub Scout program.

Boy Scout College sessions focus on the Boy Scout program.

College of Commissioner Science will provide Commissioner Basic Training.

You can choose any session in any college. Mix and match to make the most out of your experience.

Who should attend? Everyone; especially parents and leaders who are involved in Scouting. Sessions have been designed to cover all levels from the new parent who just joined at school night to the most experienced Scoutmasters. We guarantee you will walk away with information you can take back to make your Scouting experience better in your Pack or Troop.

School Supplies

Bring a notebook and pencil so you can write down plenty of good ideas to bring back to your Pack or Troop. Most sessions are indoors in a formal classroom. If you are a Scout leader wear your uniform, if you are a parent or committee member wear your Pack or Troop T-shirt or other Scout shirt.
