We are Resilient!

Start planning what classes you want to take at this year's University of Scouting by downloading the Course Catalog (available soon). We have around 100 unique classes with many being offered more than once an no prerequisites required. There’s something for all Adults and Venturing Youth.

VIP Speakers: Hear from Experts across the county talk about Northern Tier, Aerospace Career as an Eagle Scout and Council Support with the new National Service Areas.

Cub Leaders: Learn about Advancement, Songs, Outings, Camping and FUN!

Scouts BSA: Hear from experienced Scouters about First Year Scouts, Merit Badges, Hiking and High Adventure to add spice to your program.

Venturing: Youth Training classes offered by National & Territory Youth Leaders, find out about Sea Scouts, the Ranger Award and there’s a Crew Advisor session to help Adults be more effective.

Commissioners: Classes are those offered in standalone Commissioner Colleges, but you don’t have to be a Commissioner to take these classes, anyone is welcome.

Note: Class sizes are limited and all are on a first-come first-served basis so be ready as registration opens on September 1st at 7:00 AM Pacific Time.
