University of Scouting - Virtual for 2021

Welcome to the 2021 University of Scouting!

University of Scouting is “Virtually” Awesome

University of Scouting (UoS) is the premier training council event of the year. Because successful units are led by trained leaders, UoS provides an opportunity for Scouters to receive supplemental and position specific training. We encourage your leadership team to attend UoS together.

Registering for University of Scouting

You can register as a group or as an individual. Registration includes classes and a 2021 UoS patch.

*General Registration is from January 13- February 26.  $5.00



Before selecting your classes, be sure to review this entire packet, including the description of classes.  There are classes for your specific Scouting area as well as a variety of classes that span across all the Scouting areas to enhance your supplemental training.  The day is structured with five periods.

All classes are only offered once.  We encourage unit leaders to attend together so your unit can gain as much of the valuable information offered as possible.


Editing Registrations

Once you or your unit have registered, you may go back into the website and edit your registration. 

Zoom links for classes: Zoom link instructions will be sent to you, via email, a couple days before UoS.
