Below is the link for University of Scouting.  

The Northern Star Council’s University of Scouting is one of the LARGEST One Day Supplemental Training Program available anywhere.  The University of Scouting is a fun-filled, hands-on opportunity to network with other Scouters, and is truly a learning adventure. This one-day supplemental training event is designed for all Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Venturing and Sea Scout Leaders, and Venturing and Sea Scout youth leaders regardless of experience. 

The University of Scouting provides course offerings in seven colleges.  Four colleges are devoted to the major Scouting programs – Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturing and Sea Scouts.  The General College offers classes of interest to Scouters across all programs.  The Commissioner College offers classes for Commissioners.  The Youth Advancement and Knowledge (YAK) College offers classes for the Youth. 

Choose from over 120 courses with an emphasis on programs, skills, and resources to deliver high quality opportunities to the Scouting youth.  New Leader and Position Specific training will also be offered.  Plus a vendor midway offers lots of exciting program resources, materials, and ideas for you to browse. The Scout Shop will have their store open and you can pre-order items and have them waiting for you. Just call your local Scout Shop and let them know.

FYI...the troop has agreed to reimburse the registration fee for adults who attend.

Thank you.
