University of Scouting
The University of Scouting is also known as a Pow Wow or Scouting University and is an annual training event for Boy Scout, Varsity, Cub Scout, and Venturing leaders. These training conferences are for leaders from an entire council or district and take place in a festive atmosphere.
The University of Scouting is a one-day "convention" for unit leaders. Each Scoutmaster or Cubmaster should take all leaders to this learning extravaganza. There are sections on new leader training, skills, advancement, activities, ceremonies, and administration. It's a time for experienced, new, and prospective leaders to share ideas and see what the other troops and packs are doing.
All leaders are encouraged to attend this exciting, fun-filled, and informative training session every year. Check with your unit, unit commissioner, district training chair, or local council service center to find out when and where your pow wow or University of Scouting will be held.
