What is University of Scouting? UoS is an all-day event focused on providing lots of Supplemental Training classes to adult leaders and Venturers. Over 150 class offerings are included in our catalog, focused on all programs (corresponding to the five "colleges" in the UoS): Commissioners, Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, and Venturing, as well as a broad range of General Studies courses that cut across all program lines. Learn how to sing songs, tie unique knots, cook a Dutch oven banquet, successfully recruit more youth, plan an amazing outing, run an awesome unit meeting, and fix unit problems that never quite get solved in the all too frequent "parking lot" meeting after the meeting.


University of Scouting includes a complete Commissioners' College.


How do I sign up? First, review the UoS Course Catalog, only available online. It contains all class schedules, course descriptions, and other important information. Once you have selected your classes, go to the online reservation form. You will register for classes, tell us if you need child care for the day, identify any dietary issues, and pay for the courses. The course offerings are divided into five different colleges. HOWEVER  -  ANY participant can take ANY class in ANY college.
