This annual training event for adult leaders from our entire Council takes place in a truly festive atmosphere. Come for just the morning or stay all day to focus on serious topics and have fun learning new skills! The University of Scouting offers more than 100 classes in 5 different “colleges,” with dozens of new classes each year. Sign up for anything that interests you, from Weird Science to Dutch Oven Cooking to Skits & Songs and many, many more! You will find training on topics not covered anywhere else at any other event in our Council. Most classes are taught by volunteers who share not just their knowledge, but their passion about the subject at hand. We focus on topics you can take back to your Unit and use right away; practical information that will help you improve your program and the organization itself.
In addition to University of Scouting, the Greater Alabama Council offers a Merit Badge University in conjunction with this day of training. Scouts can take up to two merit badges led by experienced instructors during the day. Registration can be done by individual Scouts or by the Unit for the Merit Badge University. Come join us for a day of learning and fellowship!
