Schedule of Events:
University of Scouting Colleges (Areas of Concentration):
Change for this year -- Since most BSA basic leader training courses are offered online, they will not be offered at University of Scouting this year. Scouters needing help with online courses have an opportunity to utilize computers during our event to take their needed online courses with experienced Scouters available to assist them as needed. This allows many Scouters the opportunity to focus on supplemental information and skills that will help them build confidence and knowledge to bring back to their leadership roles and help their units while building lasting connections and networking with fellow Scouters.
