Please note: This is NOT Merit Badge College.

No Merit Badges are being offered to Youth Members.


Registration for UoS is only available online. The basic registration fee is $25.00 per participant (including faculty and staff). This fee includes morning snack, lunch and a course patch. Participants will be asked to make all course selections when registering. Any dietary restrictions (for participants and for any children in child care) should be identified when registering. Additional course patches can also be ordered ($3.00). A limited edition 7 inch jacket patch for UoS can also be ordered when registering ($15.00).


Any Scouters registering for 3-period First Aid/CPR/AED class (morning or afternoon class) will pay an additional $15.00 when registering to cover costs associated with the course workbook and materials.


CHILD CARE: Child care is being offered this year at NO cost. Yes - Child Care is FREE. Child care includes snacks and beverages (water and fruit juices), but does not include lunch; you must bring a bagged lunch for each child. Children must be at least 4 years of age. Child care must be requested as part of the UoS on-line registration (no walk-ins for child care, please).


BALOO: Cub Scout BALOO Training is NOT being offered this year at UoS. Why??? In the Fall of 2017, BSA completely revamped the syllabus for BALOO:

  • BALOO Training now includes outdoor training for Webelos Leaders (formerly (WLOT)
  • BALOO is now comprised of two parts:
    • A 45 minute introduction to BALOO only available online at MyScouting (and required before taking the outdoor program)
    • An outdoor, overnight program (approximately 36 hours) at one of our Council Camps
  • Check the schedule of courses in the Council Training Course Catalogue


It is vital that you include a valid email address when registering for UoS. We will use your email address to communicate any schedule changes (or weather delays) as well as send you a transcript of completed courses AFTER the event. Schedule changes and other current information is also posted on the UoS Facebook Page.


Youth members (anyone under age 21) registering for any Venturing courses, including Explorers, MUST provide a second email address for a parent, guardian, or unit leader - NO EXCEPTIONS. This second email address requirement is part of Youth Protection.


When you check-in at the registration desk on the day of the event, you will be given a schedule of the courses you selected online, along with room assignments. To make sure we have an accurate record of your participation, instructors will take attendance in each class.


Youth Protection Training for all participants 18 years and older MUST BE CURRENT (completed on or after January 1, 2017) when registering. UoS registration will be rejected for any adult who is not current in their Youth Protection Training. Please contact the Registrar with any questions about this requirement.


I want you to get youth protection trained.
