WHAT is Scouting University?

Scouting University is Dan Beard Council’s largest one-day training event offering fun classes for Scouting Volunteers from every troop, pack, crew, ship or post. New Scouting Parents, Scout leaders, scout event coordinators, Committee members, Unit Leaders, Commissioners, and District/Council Committee and volunteers are all welcome and encouraged to attend. Scouting University also contains special training offered for the development of Youth Leaders.

The course guide includes all the information you need for Scouting University. We have tried to include accurate course descriptions for the many types of classes offered including position specific training, supplemental training in skills and program enrichment, Youth Protection Training, religious emblem training and much much more. The day also includes a GREAT catered luncheon. A full day of fun and fellowship!

The DBC Scouting University committee has assembled some of the best trainers in the council, and has selected a wide spectrum of individual workshops that will strengthen each volunteer’s ability to deliver an excellent program for our youth. Attendance at the University of Scouting will improve your scouting and leadership skills and deepen your understanding of the impact Scouting has on young people.

Please encourage every volunteer and interested parent to attend. We are sure that the Scouting University is the best $$$$ ever spent on Scouting! Attendees will walk away with new skills, new ideas, new friends and a new and renewed passion for Scouting.
