University of Scouting
March 18, 2017 | John Muir Middle School in Wausau, WI
The University of Scouting is a program designed to offer a great deal of opportunities for all ages of the family. It is designed to develop leadership and personal skills for a more successful tomorrow. This program is open to anyone interested in learning more about the Scouting program, whether you are a first-year Scout or a seasoned adult Scouter.
Over 100 years ago, Lord Baden Powell had a vision of developing a Scouting program for youth. He soon learned that if the program was to ever succeed, he would need trained and dedicated adult leaders in the “arts and sciences” of Scouting. It’s from that idea that we offer you the “University of Scouting” covering the following areas of study:
- Cub Scout Studies
- Boy Scout Studies
- Venture Scout Studies
- General Studies
- Youth Activities and Studies
- College of Commissioner Sciences
While the classes are organized within certain study areas, all classes are open to all participants (except some youth courses that are only open to youth). Most classes are limited to the first 25 students, so please consider registering early.
